First thanks, its really amazing to see how people answer quick and
precisely in this list. Hope I will be one day able to help also.
- About post build process, your solution is working nice but I do not
understand : I can understand that inputs is "application" filetags but
why do I need to change my product type to "myapp" and set it as output
of the rule. May you explain me that point ?
- windeployqt is amazing and works perfectly. I tried it in the post
build process as followed
var cmd = new Command("windeployqt", input.fileName);
cmd.description = "Post build process" + input.fileName;
cmd.highlight = "Post build processing";
But in fact I would like to deploy not after the build but after application deployment step
How can I do that ?
- About install-root, yes I would like to affect it from the qbs file itself.
In fact I'm using Qcreator plugin and the install-root is defined in qbs.user which we do not share among developer (subversion) : I read that it is not good to share this file.
Moreover I need to deploy in many different directory (one for the final product, one for the test environnement) which are always relative to the main qbs file.
So I would like to be able to deploy in subfolders of the qbs file without taking into account the install-root defined automatically in qbs.user file by QCreator.
Perhaps I'm not thinking the right way but this is how we were working with qmake.
