can qmake retrieve external project?

  • I was using a number of times
    cmake: ExternalProject_Add
    with git parameters to automatically retrieve a library , required for build my project from git (typically from github) and add the library to project include paths (and build the external lib in some cases)
    can qmake do something like this?
    probably not to clone/pull external project from git directly but maybe run external application? (git.exe in my case)

    You could make use of the system command

    Hope it helps
