This project collects a set of script for building Qt application for Android/iOS in command line environment.
Check .travis.yml to see how it works. It will demonstrate how to build an apk file using QT-CI scripts.
Since this project is a collection of scripts, and the script in the bin folder does not have any dependence on each other. It is not necessary to clone/download the whole repository into your build environment. You may simply copy the script you need from this repository.
To automatically install Qt, you can just download 2 scripts and grant them permission for execution.
Then just run script "recipes/install-qt" with the desired version of Qt Example:
bash install-qt 5.9.4
QT_CI_PACKAGES - packages to install. You can check available packages if set VERBOSE to 1.
export VERBOSE=1 export QT_CI_PACKAGES=qt,qt.594,qt.594.gcc_64,qt.594.doc.qtvirtualkeyboard
git clone https://github.com/benlau/qtci.git source qtci/path.env #Add qtci/bin and qtci/recipes to $PATH
extract-qt-installer [--disable-progress-report] qt-installer output_path extract-qt-installer --list-packages qt-installer
Extract Qt from the installer to the target path (for Qt 5.5 or above). If --list-packages is given, it will show the available packages from the installer and terminate immediately.
extract-qt-installer qt-opensource-linux-x64-android-5.5.1.run ~/Qt
Remarks: The installation path must be absolute path
VERBOSE [Optional] Set to "true" will enable VERBOSE output QT_CI_PACKAGES [Optional] Select the components to be installed instead of using default (eg. QT_CI_PACKAGES="qt.59.gcc_64") QT_CI_LOGIN [Optional] The login name QT_CI_PASSWORD [Optional] The password of login
The arguments and environment required could be different due to the installer changes. Check the recipes folder or the wiki of known issues to find out the correct setting.
Extract installer of "Qt installer framework" to the target path
extract-ifw qt-installer-framework-opensource-1.5.0-x64.run ~/QtIfw
Download and install Android SDK
Build a Qt Android project and sign the APK
Required Environment Variables
QT_HOME [Required] The home directory of installed Qt. (e.g., ~/Qt/5.7) KEYSTORE [Optional] The location of keystore. If it is set, it will be used to sign the created apk KEYALIAS [Optional] The alias of the keystore KEYPASS [Optional] The password of keystore. ANDROID_TARGET_SDK_VERSION [Optional] Target Android SDK version. The default value is "19"
Given an AndroidManifest.xml file, it will increase the value of the versionCode field by one.
Build and run a unit test project in the current folder. If qpm.json were found, it would call
qpm install first.
In the folder "recipes", it contains a set of script that could download and install specific Qt toolchains for a different environment. (Include Android)
Please feel free to modify and submit a new recipe.
apt-get install openjdk-8-jdk p7zip source path.env #Add $PWD/bin and $PWD/recipes to $PATH #Change to the installation path qt-5.5.1-android-19 # Install Qt 5.5.1 and Android SDK source qt-5.5.1-android-19.env # Add installed Qt path to $PATH
