CuteCI

Build Status PyPI version License

CuteCI is a simple tool allowing you to install Qt with desired packages in headless mode. Qt installers are using Qt Installer Framework which provides scripting ability, CuteCI takes advantage of this.

Requirements

  • Python3 pip3
  • cuteci is in Python but has only been tested on Ubuntu (+docker).
  • cuteci has been tested with Qt installer 5.9.7 5.10.1 5.11.3 5.12.2 5.12.3, 5.12.4, 5.13.0.

Installation

pip3 install cuteci

Principle

cuteci does few things:

  • Download Qt installer if you pass an url
  • Make installer executable
  • Install Qt with desired packages in the directory you choose

cuteci can also only lists packages available in the installer.

Usage

Common options:

  • --installer (required): path or url to Qt installer. If url, choose an official one from download.qt.io/official_releases/qt/, this is because md5sums.txt is retrieved implicitely from it.
  • --ui: if set, Qt installer UI is shown (useful for debugging).
  • --rm: if set, Qt installer is removed at the end.
  • --timeout: duration in seconds to wait for the operation to be finished.

List packages

cuteci \
    --installer <path or official url> \
    [--ui] [--rm] \
    list

Will output:

===LIST OF PACKAGES===
qt    Qt
qt.qt5.5122    Qt 5.12.2
qt.tools    Developer and Designer Tools

===END OF PACKAGES===

Install

cuteci \
    --installer <path or official url> \
    [--ui] [--rm] \
    install \
    --destdir /opt/Qt \
    --packages qt.qt5.5122.gcc_64,qt.qt5.5122.android_x86 \
    [--verbose] [--keep-tools]

Notes

  • destdir should not contain a previous Qt installation (unless it has been installed with cuteci), otherwise installer will complain and script does not handle it.
  • If --keep-tools is set, QtCreator, Maintenance Tools, samples and doc will be kept, but you will not be able to install another version of Qt in destdir.

Docker integration

Here is the sample of a minimalist Dockerfile using cuteci to install Qt 5.12.2:

FROM ubuntu:18.04

RUN apt-get update && apt-get install -y --no-install-recommends \
    libdbus-1-3 \
    xvfb \
    libfontconfig \
    python3 \
    python3-pip

RUN pip3 install cuteci && \
    cuteci \
        --rm \
        --installer http://download.qt.io/official_releases/qt/5.12/5.12.2/qt-opensource-linux-x64-5.12.2.run \
        install \
        --destdir /opt/Qt \
        --packages qt.qt5.5122.gcc_64
