Downloading and Installing Qt There are two ways to install Qt:. through the Qt Installers - downloads and installs Qt. through the Qt sources. You can download the Qt 5 installers and sources from the page. For more information, visit the page. Building Qt 5 from Source Below, you will find more information about building Qt from source. building and installing from source Note: Qt 5 uses Cocoa, therefore, building for Carbon is not possible.
MacOS Versions See for the list of macOS versions supported by Qt. Qt can be built for either x8664 or x8664h (Haswell). X8664 is used by default. To select a x8664h build, use the QMAKEAPPLEDEVICEARCHS qmake variable. This is selectable at configure time. /configure -platform macx -clang QMAKEAPPLEDEVICEARCHS = 'x8664 x8664h' Note: Qt 5.10+ does not support 32-bit builds.
Note: Qt 5 does not support OS X on PowerPC. Note: Static builds are not tested. Additional Command-Line Options On the command-line, applications can be built using qmake and make. Optionally, qmake can generate project files for Xcode with -spec macx-xcode. If you are using the binary package, qmake generates Xcode projects by default; use -spec macx-gcc to generate makefiles. Qmake -spec macx -xcode project.pro Configuring with -spec macx-xcode generates an Xcode project file from project.pro. With you do not have to worry about rules for Qt's preprocessors ( and ) since automatically handles them and ensures that everything necessary is linked into your application.
Qt does not entirely interact with the development environment (for example plugins to set a file to 'mocable' from within the Xcode user interface). The result of the build process is an application bundle, which is a directory structure that contains the actual application executable. The application can be launched by double-clicking it in Finder, or by referring directly to its executable from the command line, for example, myApp.app/Contents/MacOS/myApp. If you wish to have a command-line tool that does not use the GUI for example, moc, uic or ls, you can tell qmake to disable bundle creation from the CONFIG variable in the project file. CONFIG - = appbundle Deploying Applications on macOS In general, Qt supports building on one macOS version and deploying to earlier or later macOS versions. The recommended way is to build on the latest version and deploy to an earlier macOS version. Haymakers for hope. MacOS applications are typically deployed as self-contained application bundles.
The application bundle contains the application executable as well as dependencies such as the Qt libraries, plugins, translations and other resources you may need. Third party libraries like Qt are normally not installed system-wide; each application provides its own copy. A common way to distribute applications is to provide a compressed disk image (.dmg file) that the user can mount in Finder.
The deployment tool, macdeployqt (available from the macOS installers), can be used to create the self-contained bundles, and optionally also create a.dmg archive. Applications can also be distributed through the Mac App Store.
Qt 5 aims to stay within the app store sandbox rules. Macdeployqt (bin/macdeployqt) can be used as a starting point for app store deployment. macOS Issues The page below covers specific issues and recommendations for creating macOS applications.
