[Moved][Proposal] Include "cross compilation" with Qt Creator



  • It would be nice if Qt Development Frameworks could (from a technical and a legal point of view) include "cross compilation" functionality with Qt Creator. What I mean: I use (mainly) Qt Creator at Mac OS X. I would like to compile into the corresponding executables for Mac OS X, Microsoft Windows and Linux. Wouldn't it be nice? This kind of functionality is included (for example) with RealStudio (I have taken a look at their trial edition).

    PS: I am not interested for an extra plugin from an independent developer or other "tricks"! I am interested for official included functionality. ;)



  • I never tried this, but I would go to the projects settings, add another build configuration and tweak the qmake arguments to use the right mkspec, which in turn pulls in the correct compiler tool chain. Additionally one could change the build environment, too.

    Could it be THAT simple?
