install qmlscene without installing XCode on Mac?

  • I developed QML apps that I wish to share with 'non-developper' people. Using qmlscene to launch my apps looks like a nice way to do it.
    But installing Qt necessarily implies installing XCode. I do not see any reason to that, as I don't want my co-workers to compile anything...
    Is there any solution to this situation?

    Welcome to the forum.
    You can develop executable along with QML. You can use the option "New file or Project->Qt Quick Application". This will build executable for you. You can distribute executable along with necessary libraries. You don't have to use the qmlscene in the scenario.

  • Thanks for your input Dheerendra; I should have mentioned this but an exe file does not seem to be an option for me. I tried it too and the output exe was about 200Mo, which clearly is too much when you know that the files I wrote only weigh a few hundred Ko...
    What I would like to know is whether my quest for this qmlscene without XCode is achievable - or not.

  • So I just found a solution:
    I used homebrew package manager to install qt5 on Mac. This also installs qmlscene :D
