\title Setting Up a Qbs Project
The Qt Build Suite (Qbs) and the Qbs plugin are still experimental, and
therefore, you must first enable the plugin manually. If you build \QC
yourself from our Git repository, you also need to fetch the Qbs submodule
to get Qbs support.
To use Qbs to build a project, you must create a .qbs file for the project.
For more information, see the
\l{}{Qbs Manual}.
\section1 Enabling the Qbs Plugin
If you use a \QC binary release, you need to enable the plugin by
selecting \gui Help > \gui {About Plugins} > \gui {Build Systems}
> \gui {QbsProjectManager} and restarting \QC.
You can use \QC to create a C or C++ project that is built with Qbs.
For more information about Qbs, see
the \l{}{Qbs Manual}.
\section1 Building Qbs
To build the Qbs plugin yourself from the \QC git repository:
If you build \QC yourself from the \QC Git repository, you also need to
fetch the Qbs submodule to get Qbs support:
\list 1
\li Fetch the Qbs submodule in your \QC git checkout with
\c {git submodule update --init}.
\li Use Qbs or qmake and make to build \QC again.
\li Enable the Qbs plugin as described above.
\li Run qmake on \QC and build \QC again.
