View Full Version : Portable qmake .pro files...

20th September 2009, 00:34
I'm from a Windows background where the standard m.o. for building an open-source project with 3rd party dependencies means manually editing the paths in the project files. From what I understand of Linux, though, this step is taken care of automatically by doing some sort of "configure" step prior to compiling and linking, no? So my question is this...

What's a good way to setup the Windows build in QtCreator such that the user doesn't have to manually edit the .pro files in order to include and link against 3rd party libraries? Is there a good web-site or howto on the subject somewhere (since I'm not finding much related to qmake and .pro files on my own I figured I'd ask here)?
