\title Setting Up a Qbs Project
The Qt Build Suite (Qbs) and the Qbs plugin are still experimental, and
therefore, you must first build them from sources. You can use the Qbs
plugin only with a \QC instance you also built from sources by using the
same tool chain as for building Qbs and the Qbs plugin.
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. See \l{Enabling the Qbs Plugin} below.
To use Qbs to build a project, you must create a .qbs file for the project.
For more information, see the
\l{}{Qbs Manual}.
