rename .user file? multiple .user files?
I have one computer running both mac and windows (mac with parallels)
i have one cross platform project, accessed from the same file system folder in both mac and windows
obviously, the .user file is going to be a problem.
i can extract the shared .user file stuff into a shared user file, no prob there.
but it would really solve the problem if i could RENAME the user file based on platform, eg:
the obvious place to do this would be in QT Creator prefs, but i see no place to do so.
i thought i could MAYBE change the "environment variable" for the file extension, like this
but i am not sure how to set the environment variable.
also thought maybe i'll make a hard link "Proj_Mac.pro" that points to "Proj.pro", hoping the .user file created would be called "Proj_Mac.pro.user", but that didn't work. tried with Alias as well, also fail.
I've googled around and found many people with this same pain point, but no solutions.
updateQ: wait would it work to have a Proj_mac.pro who's ONLY line is [#include "Proj.pri"] ? as described here? then the user file names would be different!!
YES! You can have separate .pro files with different names, and one pri file, eg:
Proj_mac.pro Proj_win.pro Proj.pri
and each .pro file has one line:
problem solved! each user gets a separate user file, but you have only one project file (the ".pri" one)
