Importing project from github
Hello to all,
I want to import a project from github to qt creator but apparently is not possible because the project doesn't have any *.cmake, *.pro, *.Cmakelists.txt files. It only has a makefile.am which generates to makefile.in and makefile when I build the project.
Is there any other way I can import the project successfully or the only way is to convert the makefile.am to cmake?
You could try to enable the autotools plugin in Qt Creator (disclaimer: I haven't used it)
Thanks for the reply SGaist. I will try this, if it doesn't work what is the next solution? Converting the makefile to cmake?
cmake or qmake, it's up to you to choose, whatever is your favorite
I can confirm that the autotools plugin works very well. There was a problem in building the project but I guess its because of the settings of the compiler of qt.
I build the project manually and then load it in qt and now it works fine.
For that first build problem, I don't know, I'm generally using either qmake or cmake. You can ask on the qt-creator mailing list you'll find there Qt Creator's developers/maintainers.
