Introduction to Cmake

An Introduction to CMake

CMake is an open-source cross-platform build system. It is increasingly becoming the build system of choice for open source projects. The Qt project recently announced that Qbs, the replacement build system for qmake, will no longer be supported and future efforts will focus on CMake. It may become the default build system for Qt version 6.

CMake has offered support for building Qt applications for some time, and is supported within the Qt Creator IDE. In this webinar we will:

  • Introduce you to CMake
  • Cover its basic features and how to use it
  • Show some CMake configurations including Qt-based applications
  • Prove how easy it is to use Cmake with Qt so you'll be ready to use it for your C++ and Qt-based applications!
