How do I start using qbs with QtCreator to build Qt apps?

  • HI!

    I'm on Qt 5.2.1 and Qt Creator 3.0.1
    I use msvc 2013 x64

    I'd like to start using qbs for all my projects onwards, but I don't know how.
    Tried installing qbs plugin, but it only showed up if you choose plain apps, not qt apps.
    Since I'm not familiar with build systems (debugged makefile before, succeeded but left scarred for life)
    So I'm afraid I have to ask for some pointers to start on.

    My problem with qmake is fairly standard: some linker errors then you know it's time to nmake -clean and qmake again. I wished to automate this.

    Thanks in advance

    The standard wizards are still based on qmake, as QBS remains a "smaller brother" here ;)

    Check out "the docs":, they are generally getting better. The developers of QBS are very active and helpful on the QBS mailing list, too.

    Also, there is a wiki "here":
