Adding github web URL of libraries to Qt Creator
JCSB last edited by
I have been trying to use cURLpp with Qt, but I cannot even find a way to add the library to my project.
I need to add curl and curlpp. I tried adding an external library to my Qt project, but they are not downloaded as a .lib file, so Qt seems unable to import them. They are made of headers and source files, so I want to know how to easily incorporate them.
I added the web urls for both these libraries in my sourcetree repository. I have the library folders outside of the qt project this way, but I dont think there is any other option in this case.
Then, I tried setting up my .pro file and filepaths, but I have been unsuccessful after hours of work. This is what I have.
CONFIG += c++11 INCLUDEPATH += curlpp \ curl \ curl/include/curl \ curl/src/curl DEFINES += QT_DEPRECATED_WARNINGS SOURCES += \ main.cpp \ mainwindow.cpp HEADERS += \ mainwindow.h FORMS += \ mainwindow.ui
Since curlpp is a C++ wrapper for curl, it has some dependencies and tries to include curl at some point. I get an error (no matter what I try) when curlpp tries to include the curl header, in the cURLpp.hpp header.
Is there a more simple way to include libraries, or is there something I can correct to let the 2 libs talk to eachother?
Did you just clone the curl sources ? If so the you have to build it before you can use it.
