Hi, i'm giving a try to write my project using a very simple with no syntax neither intellisense helpers ide as vim or nano (or even notepad), what are the steps to build just the same as i did on Qt Creator?
This is what i do:
- go to project source folder
- execute : qmake
- execute : make
- what's next?.
That should be it. Make will run the compiler and linker and you should have an executable ready to run, so...
4. run the app

just curious about make process.. it taking so much time...
the output is :
C:\Qt\5.15.2\mingw81_32\bin\qmake -o Makefile S_Elearning.pro C:\Qt\5.15.2\mingw81_32\bin\qmake -o Makefile S_Elearning.pro C:\Qt\5.15.2\mingw81_32\bin\qmake -o Makefile S_Elearning.pro C:\Qt\5.15.2\mingw81_32\bin\qmake -o Makefile S_Elearning.pro .. .. repeating all this all the time.. right now it alive for 15 minutes..
it has finished building!.. but i got some errors on compilation,
#include <QSqlDatabase> fatal error: No such file or directory
the same happens with QDialog and other files...
may I need to reconfigure some paths?..
I'm using Windows 10 - X64
I managed to compile it, needed to add project filename to step 2.

@U7Development I also recently undertook an effort to compile a
qmakeproject without an IDE (i.e. without Visual Studio and without Qt Creator).
As you probably know, this is more than just a matter of any personal taste (or personal distaste) for any particular IDE. Rather, a scripted and repeatable build is essential for continuous integration!
Congratulations on getting it working with
In my case, I used the MSVC toolchain (in place of
mingw). For anyone else in the MSVC situation, I think one extra step is needed in order to succeed at building in a terminal window. The step is to call
vcvars64.batto select the MSVC toolchain.
From a cmd.exe window,
vcvars64.batcan be used to select the MSVC toolchain. From thereafter, calling
qmakeusing the full path to the 'msvc2019_64' (or similar) edition of
qmakeis the key to building with the right "kit". (Qt Creator IDE terminology speaks in terms of "kits".)
Since Windows development has historically been far less command-line oriented than Linux (or even Mac) development, I just want to give this forum thread even more love and continue to "sprinkle the news around" that a command-line MSVC build is possible. My applause to @U7Development for the same!
