How to clone a project ?



  • Hi All,

    I’d like to know how to clone a project.
    As it seems that this feature does not exist in Qt Creator what is the best workaround ? I
    Is the only solution to duplicate the source folder and manually edit files like xxx.pro to change what is necessary ?

    Thanks in advance

    Gilles

    No changes to .pro should be necessary. Just copy the files and remove the .pro.user file.

    The preferred way is of course to create a fresh checkout from your version control system. With distributed version control systems like git, bazaar and mercurial (all supported by creator) you do not even need to set up a server somewhere!

    You should be using one, even if you work alone!
