Qt Creator ========== Qt Creator is a cross-platform C++ IDE for development with the Qt framework. Supported Platforms =================== The binary packages support the following platforms: Windows 7, Windows XP SP2, Windows Vista (K)Ubuntu Linux 8.04 (32-bit and 64-bit) or later Mac OS 10.5 or later Building the sources requires Qt 4.7.4 or later. Compiling Qt Creator ==================== Prerequisites: * Qt 4.7.4 * On Windows: - ActiveState Active Perl (version 5.8.9 for Symbian development) - MinGW 4.4 or later, Visual Studio 2008 or later - jom The Qt SDK provides you with most of the required software. * On Mac: XCode 2.5 or later, compiling on 10.4 requires setting the environment variable QTC_TIGER_COMPAT before running qmake We recommend that you build Qt Creator not in the source directory, but in a separate directory. To do that, use the following commands: mkdir $BUILD_DIRECTORY cd $BUILD_DIRECTORY qmake $SOURCE_DIRECTORY/qtcreator.pro make (or mingw32-make or nmake or jom, depending on your platform) Compiling Qt Quick Designer --------------------------- Qt Quick Designer (QmlDesigner plugin) depends on "private" headers from Qt 4.7.4, specifically from the QtDeclarative module. These private headers always end with an "_p.h". Nokia does not promise to keep these files or APIs binary or source compatible between releases. This means that when compiled, the plugin has a dependency to the exact Qt version it was compiled with. Running Qt Creator with the plugin against updated Qt libraries (also for patch releases) might lead to link time failures, or even crashes. If you want to disable the plugin, you can pass "QT_PRIVATE_HEADERS=" to qmake: qmake "QT_PRIVATE_HEADERS=" $SOURCE_DIRECTORY/qtcreator.pro The plugin is not compiled if the private header files are not found. This might be the case when you use a Qt version from your distribution, or installed a self-compiled Qt to a separate directory via 'make install'. You can fix this by either re-building your Qt with the "-developer-build" configure option, or by passing the include directory in the source directory to qmake. For example: qmake "QT_PRIVATE_HEADERS=$$QT_BUILD_TREE/include" $SOURCE_DIRECTORY/qtcreator.pro Compiling Qt and Qt Creator on Windows -------------------------------------- This section provides step by step instructions for compiling the latest versions of Qt and Qt Creator on Windows. Alternatively, to avoid having to compile Qt yourself, you can use one of the versions of Qt shipped with the Qt SDK (release builds of Qt using MinGW and Visual C++ 2008). 1. Decide which compiler to use: MinGW or Microsoft Visual Studio. If you plan to contribute to Qt Creator, you should compile your changes with both compilers. 2. Install msysGit from http://code.google.com/p/msysgit/. If you plan to use the MinGW compiler suite, do not choose to put git in the default path of Windows command prompts. For more information, see step 9. 3. Create a working directory under which to check out Qt and Qt Creator, for example, c:\work. If you plan to use MinGW and Microsoft Visual Studio simultaneously or mix different Qt versions, we recommend creating a directory structure which reflects that. For example: C:\work\qt4.7.1-vs10, C:\work\qt4.7.2-mingw. 4. Download and install Perl from http://www.activestate.com/activeperl and check that perl.exe is added to the path. 5. In the working directory, check out the respective branch of Qt (we recommend 4.7; see http://qt.gitorious.org/qt). 6. Check out Qt Creator (master branch, see http://qt.gitorious.org/qt-creator). You should now have the directories qt and creator under your working directory. 7. Install a compiler: - For MinGW (4.4 onwards), see http://www.mingw.org/. Note that gcc 4.5 produces insufficient debugging information, and therefore, we recommend that you use gcc 4.4 for debugging. - For Microsoft Visual C++, install the Windows SDK and the "Debugging Tools for Windows" from the SDK image. We strongly recommend using the 64-bit version and 64-bit compilers on 64-bit systems. When using Visual C++ 2010, you must apply a hotfix that is available from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2280741 (See https://bugreports.qt-project.org/browse/QTBUG-11445). For the Visual C++ compilers, it is recommended to use the tool 'jom'. It is a replacement for nmake that utilizes all CPU cores and thus speeds up compilation significantly. Download it from ftp://ftp.qt.nokia.com/jom/ and add the executable to the path. 8. For convenience, we recommend creating shell prompts with the correct environment. This can be done by creating a .bat-file (such as, <working_directory>\qtvars.bat) that contains the environment variable settings. A .bat-file for MinGW looks like: set QTDIR=<working_directory>\qt set PATH=%QTDIR%\bin;<path_to_mingw>\bin;<working_directory>\creator\bin;%PATH% set QMAKESPEC=win32-g++ For the Visual C++ compilers, call the .bat file that sets up the environment for the compiler (provided by the Windows SDK or the compiler): CALL "C:\Program Files (x86)\MSVC10\VC\vcvarsall.bat" amd64 set QTDIR=<working_directory>\qt set PATH=%QTDIR%\bin;<working_directory>\creator\bin;%PATH% set QMAKESPEC=win32-msvc2010 You can create desktop links to the bat files using the working directory and specifying %SystemRoot%\system32\cmd.exe /E:ON /V:ON /k <working_directory>\qtvars.bat 9. When using MinGW, open the shell prompt and enter: sh.exe That should result in a 'sh is not recognized as internal or external command...' error. If a sh.exe is found, the compile process will fail. You have to remove it from the path. 10. You are now ready to configure and build Qt and Qt Creator. To use MinGW, open the the shell prompt and enter: cd qt configure -debug && mingw32-make -s cd ..\creator qmake && mingw32-make -s To use the Visual C++ compilers, enter: cd qt configure -debug && jom cd ..\creator qmake && jom 11. To launch Qt Creator, enter: qtcreator 12. When using Visual C++ with the "Debugging Tools for Windows" installed, the extension library qtcreatorcdbext.dll to be loaded into the Windows console debugger (cdb.exe) should have been built under lib\qtcreatorcdbext32 or lib\qtcreatorcdbext64. When using a 32 bit-build of Qt Creator with the 64 bit version of the "Debugging Tools for Windows" the library should also be built with a 64 bit compiler (rebuild src\libs\qtcreatorcdbext using a 64 bit compiler). Note that unlike on Unix, you cannot overwrite executables that are running. Thus, if you want to work on Qt Creator using Qt Creator, you need a separate build of it. We recommend using a separate, release-built version of Qt and Qt Creator to work on a debug-built version of Qt and Qt Creator or using shadow builds.
