Note: This command is in technology preview and may change in future releases.


    SOURCE_DIR <dir>
    OUTPUT_PACKAGE <package.ampkg>

If versionless commands are disabled, use qt6_am_create_installable_package() instead. It supports the same set of arguments as this command.


Adds a custom target that, when executed, uses the appman-packager tool to create a package for the application found in SOURCE_DIR. The result is written to OUTPUT_PACKAGE.

The complete content of the source directory is packaged, which works out of the box for QML-only applications, but needs installation rules to temporary directories for more sophisticated setups (e.g. QML plugins).

The info.yaml manifest from SOURCE_DIR is added as source file to the target.

Note: This function will serve as an anchor for the application manager's QtCreator integration to discover the available packages in a System UI.


Here is a snippet from the applicationmanager/package-installation example, showing how this function is used there:

foreach (PKG_NAME red green)
        SOURCE_DIR     ${CMAKE_CURRENT_SOURCE_DIR}/installable-apps/hello-world.${PKG_NAME}/
        OUTPUT_PACKAGE ${CMAKE_CURRENT_BINARY_DIR}/ps-data/upload/hello-${PKG_NAME}.ampkg
    add_dependencies(package-installation package-installation-create-${PKG_NAME}-ampkg)
