Qt SQL driver plugin for SQLCipher
- Qt 5
- CMake >= 3.0
OS X 10.10 Yosemite
- Qt 5.5.0 from Homebrew
- SQLCipher 3.3.0 from Homebrew
Ubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet
- Qt 5.4.1
- SQLCipher 3.2.0
- Also requires
qtbase5-private-devfor Qt's private headers.
Follow Qt's plugin deployment guide.
In short, put the plugin at
sqldrivers/libqsqlcipher.so relative to your
You can also build the plugin statically by passing
-DSTATIC=ON to CMake.
When you build your application which uses the static plugin, you'll need to
include the line
Q_IMPORT_PLUGIN(QSQLCipherDriverPlugin); in one of your
source files and define
QT_STATICPLUGIN at compile time. And link to the
static plugin, of course.
Note that setting
-DSTATIC=ON only builds this plugin as a static library.
If you also want to link to static versions of Qt and/or SQLCipher, it's up to
you to make sure CMake finds static versions of those libraries.
Some basic tests are included - run
make test. Note that while pretty much
any C++ compiler can build the actual plugin, the tests require support for
C++14. If you have an old compiler you can pass
-DBUILD_TESTING=OFF to CMake
to skip building the tests.
This repository used to contain a different method of achieving the same
result, but which required you to have the full Qt source tree available. That
code is available in the
old branch of this repository.
