Version control systems that you can use from Qt Creator.
Most Qt Creator project wizards enable you to choose the build system to use for building the project: qmake, CMake, Meson, or Qbs. qmake is installed and configured when you install Qt. To use one of the other supported build systems, you need to set it up.
With Autotools, you can create a portable, complete, and self-contained GNU Build System from simple instructions.
CMake is an alternative to qmake for automating the generation of build systems.
The experimental Conan plugin integrates the Conan package manager.
IncrediBuild decreases the time it takes to build C++ code.
Use Meson to build native desktop applications.
The Nimble package manager uses the Nim compiler to generate Nim application executables for the desktop platforms.
Qbs is an all-in-one build tool that generates a build graph from a high-level project description (like qmake or CMake do) and executes the commands in the low-level build graph (like make does).
The experimental vcpkg plugin integrates the vcpkg C/C++ package manager.
Build configurations have everything you need to compile the sources into binaries. Build configurations use the tools and settings defined in their corresponding kit.

Lists the registered compilers. You can add custom compilers to the list.
Set kit preferences. A kit consists of a set of values that define one environment, such as a device, tool chain, Qt version, and debugger command to use.
Configure the text editor to suit your needs.
Set preferences for indentation, typing, and file encoding in the text editor.
Set preferences for code completion and inserting matching characters in the text editor.
Set the font preferences and apply color schemes for syntax highlighting, diff editor, and code analysis results.
Add, change, and remove snippets in the snippet editor.
Run configurations start the application in the location where the deploy configuration copied it. By default, when you select Run, Qt Creator builds the project, deploys it to the device defined in the kit, and runs it there. If you did not make changes to the project since you last built and deployed it, Qt Creator simply runs it again.
