iOS subdirs project issues

  • Consider the following file

    CONFIG += c++11
    TEMPLATE = subdirs
    SUBDIRS += \
        aop_logger \
        aop_xml \
        aop_serial \
        aop_util \
        aop_measure \
        MoreMath \
        MathUtilities \
        DataCollection \
        DebugLogger \
        BufferedSharedMemory \
        AvionicsBus \
        AircraftDataModel \
        WindModel \
        TableLookups \
        configuration \
        AtosUtils \
        dna \
        aop_data \
        aop_comm \
        tap_data \
        tap_messaging \
        RouteContainer \
        arinc_io_adapter \
        aop_interface \
    aop_comm.depends = dna
    aop_data.depends = WindModel TableLookups
    aop_interface.depends = aop_comm
    aop_xml.depends = aop_logger
    aop_serial.depends = aop_xml
    dna.depends = configuration
    tap_display_app.depends = tap_messaging aop_interface
    tap_messaging.depends = tap_data dna aop_comm

    The application is in the tap_display_app subdir at the very bottom of the list. When I run qmake on this file to generate my xcode project files, I have to use

    qmake -spec macx-xcode -recursive

    It generates a bunch of warnings saying:

    WARNING: QMAKESPEC does not support multiple BUILDS

    The bigger problem is that in the resulting Xcode project file, the top-level project which is the SUBDIRS project "tap_display" has no targets. I have to explicitly set the target by clicking the tap_display_app project and then the tap_display_app target in Xcode.

    Is there a better way to do this? I want to be able to run qmake, load the xcode project and pretty much click "build". I know its not as simple as this because there are other settings that need to be set, but selecting the project and target shouldn't be one of them (IMO).

    That might be iOS specific, can you check if you get the same when building for macOS ?

  • @SGaist The behavior is the same regardless of the target platform. If build it in Qt Creator its fine, but that's not a viable solution for iOS apps. I haven't tried using qmake to generate my Linux make files or MSVC project files to see if those behave any better.
