Detailed analysis of the most interesting changes.

Debian pacakges

This feature is very conveniently if you want to create server application.
For example i need to create simple server for my simple game.
And my steps: * build my application in the release mode. * run cqtdeployer with deb option.

cqtdeployer -bin mySimpleServer deb -qmake ~/Qt/5.15.2/gcc_64/bin/qmake

The SimpleServer depends only on qt, so it was enough for me to specify only the path to qmake for my application.

It is all!!!. And i get the workly deb package.
By Default CQtDeployer create an independet debian packages.

Zip arrhives

This feature allow compress your distribution pacakges to zip arrhive.


cqtdeployer -bin mySimpleServer zip -qmake ~/Qt/5.15.2/gcc_64/bin/qmake

Custom Qt Installer Framework tempaltes.

Now you can override default template of the cqtdeployer. To do this, you must pass the path to your template to the qif parameter.

cqtdeployer ... -qif /path/to/my/custom/qif/template


The qif template should contain 2 folders: * packages * config


The name of the packages in the packages folder must match the names of the packages during deployment.

For example:

"targetPackage": [
├── config
│ ├── config.xml
│ └── style.qss
└── packages
    └── myCustomInstaller
        └── meta
            ├── installscript.qs
            └── package.xml

4 directories, 4 files

If the folder names do not match the package names then CQtDeployer will use the standard QIF package.

If you have only one package then you can use the name option for set name the application.

cqtdeployer ... -qif /path/to/my/custom/qif/template -name myCustomInstaller

Do not forget to rename the your package folder to the packaga name of the name option.

├── config
│   ├── config.xml
│   └── style.qss
└── packages
    └── myCustomInstaller  << "This is folder of the your package"
        └── meta
            ├── installscript.qs
            └── package.xml

4 directories, 4 files
