QBS: Is it possible to include Qt libraries in InstallPackage output archive?
I have a big application that I recently ported to QBS.
I have a tons of legacy bash scripts that produce a
.tar.gzarchive which includes the Qt dynamic libraries (like libQtCore5Core.so.5 etc..) so that our users can just unpack and run the app.
Is it possible to achieve the same in QBS using the
InstallPackageitem (docs: http://doc.qt.io/qbs/installpackage-item.html)?
Are there other ways to do that?
Not a direct answer but did you consider using the linuxdeployqt project for deployment ? You can make for example an AppImage that will contain everything needed.
Yes, that's totally an option!
Still I'm curious to know if this can be done with QBS... I'm porting a couple of big projects to it and I'm trying to test every feature of this tool, which I think it's great!
But, anyway thanks for the tip!
