[Interest] QML preprocessing

Maybe you can overload the functor directly into the code and import the file only if in debug mode (optional module): 

That could also be helpful to split the log into multiple receiver.

Not sure if this would work, but maybe you can override the console.log command into the QQmlScriptEngine and define a new javascript function that does nothing. Maybe into the your main.cpp where you create the QQmlEngine you can call the rootContext() QQmlContext object, maybe you can extract the console object with QVariant contextProperty() and set the debug() property of it with a QQmlExpression, I cannot glue all this together, but maybe something into that direction could be done before you start loading the main qml file. This is far fetched by might work but it seem overcomplicated to me.

Subject: [Interest] QML preprocessing

I understand that this topic was raised a lot of times and that this is not QML-way. But, what options do I have in case of requirements to eliminate all the logging for release builds?

Is there any hidden magic in qmake, like 'QMAKE_SUBSTITUTES' but more flexible to substitute all the 'console.debug....' with '// console.debug' right before adding qml into resources?

p.s. Yea, I'm aware of selectors, but would like to avoid having both component-with-logging.qml and component-with-no-logging.qml
