[Qt-creator] QML dir hierarchy

That can absolutely be done.

Made a quick example:

// This is how the qrc is structured
    <qresource prefix="/">
    <qresource prefix="/assets">
    <qresource prefix="/images">

// And this is how you can address components under prefixes
import QtQuick 2.1
import QtQuick.Controls 1.0

ApplicationWindow {
    visible: true
    width: 640
    height: 480
    title: qsTr("Hello World")

    MyAsset {
        // Available due to the explicit import of qrc:/assets
        anchors.centerIn: parent

    Image {
        // Path pattern:   "qrc:<prefix>/< path>"
        // Tip: You can use aliases in qml.qrc to shorten paths for files in subfolders.
        source: "qrc:/images/alert.png"

Hope that helped!

Subject: [Qt-creator] QML dir hierarchy

I am cross posting this to QtC and Interest because it's a combinational issue.

My QML projects are getting sizable, I'd like to start breaking my QML resources down in a hierarchy, but my attempt at that has failed.

qml.qrc /
- app.js
- Screen1.qml
- Component1.qml
- Screen1.qml
- Component3.qml
- Component4.qml
- Screen1.qml
- Component2.qml

I'd like to break it down into:
qml.qrc /
- Screens /
-- Screen1.qml
-- Screen1.qml
-- Screen1.qml
- Components /
-- Comoponent1.qml
-- Comoponent2.qml

But I was not able to accomplish this in QtC. So I hacked the QRC file to have two prefix entries:  <qresource prefix="/screens"> and  <qresource prefix="/components"> However this resulted in errors.

Also, in QtC they weren't folderized, they just appeared as screens/Screen1.qml ...

How can I accomplish a folderized QRC? Currently, the filesystem is flat, but I don't mind adding them to actual folders if that would help.
