How to run this project !!



  • Hey guys,

    This is my first post in Qt forums. :)
    I found an excellent open-source project, made with Qt
    but as I am using Qt for the first time, I don't know much.

    https://github.com/andryblack/fontbuilder
    the above is the link to the project.
    Can anyone please guide me how to successfully run the project.
    Really in need.

    Thanks in advance.
    Godspeed.. :)



  • Hi @pabitrapadhy, and welcome to the forums :)

    git clone git@github.com:andryblack/fontbuilder.git
    cd fontbuilder/
    qmake
    make
    ./bin/FontBuilder
    

    Worked for me on Ubuntu 16.04. Would be slightly different on different platforms such as Windows.

    What platform are you using?

    Cheers.

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    The quickest is:

    1. Clone from git
    2. Open .pro file with QtCreator
    3. Configure
    4. Click on the Run arrow

    Otherwise the instructions are pretty much the same as what @paul-colby wrote.

    git clone git@github.com:andryblack/fontbuilder.git
    cd fontbuilder/
    ~/Qt/5.7/clang_64/bin/qmake 
    make
    ./bin/FontBuilder.app/Contents/MacOS/FontBuilder 
    

    Replace 5.7 by the adequate value for your Qt version. This also assumes that you have a default Qt installation. Otherwise update the path to qmake to match where it can be found on your system.



  • Thanks so much for helping out.
    I had to figure out some small stuffs.
    I builded it successfully.:)
