qiBuild documentation

Building a project

Simple build

Let’s assume you only want to compile your project once.

Doing so is easy:

$ qibuild make foo

Or, to build in release, use:

$ qibuild make --release foo

Using an IDE

qiBuild is based on CMake, which in turns knows how to generate project files for many of IDEs : Xcode, Eclipse, Visual Studio. Here we are only dealing with the details for:

  • QtCreator on Mac and Linux
  • Visual Studio on Windows.


qiBuild is known to work fine with these IDEs, there may be some work to do to be able to use Xcode or Eclipse. Patches and tutorials welcome !
