CMake and Qt

Here, you can find a collection of resources about CMake with or without Qt. Additionally a first short series on CMake started to introduce you to CMake, the industry-standard buildsystem for C/C++ code. Why is Qt 6 switching to CMake? What does a simple CMake file look like? How do I create a library that other projects can use? How do I use such a library? The topics in this series are an extract of a 2-day training. Find more information about our CMake training here…

This video introduces the CMake series, starting with: What is CMake? It will also mention the pre-requisites for this series and the topics that will be covered by the other videos in this series.

CMake and Qt (Part 2) - Qt6 switches to CMake

This video shows and explains the source code of a CMake build definition file (CMakeLists.txt) for a simple Qt application.

Although the example is based on Qt 5, the same CMakeLists.txt can be used with Qt 6, by simply replacing '5' with '6' everywhere.

The example code showcased in this video is available here: https://github.com/KDAB/kdabtv/tree/master/CMake/HelloWorld
