[Qt-creator] Deploying to "Embedded" Linux?

I read http://doc.qt.io/qtcreator/creator-deployment-embedded-linux.html

I wish to use my Mac to deploy to a RaspberryPi. However I don't think this is supported. The Boot2Qt stuff at least does not support OSX (Only Windows & Linux are supported). I used a amazon linux server to build the boot2qt image. But for application development I don't want to tave to use linux, or a VM. I want to use my mac. 

In the web page above, it looks like it assumes the host is compiling and pushing the compiled image to the device. I was hoping there was a way to use Qt to copy the project to the device, and build it there, so that I don't need to mess with cross-compilers on my system?
scp -r project/* pi at target:project
ssh pi at target -c "cd project && qmake && make -j 4  && ./project"
 (how to attach debugger?)

Or is this a dumb idea?
