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.
The experimental vcpkg plugin integrates the vcpkg C/C++ package manager into Qt Creator.
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 generates Nim application executables that are supported on Windows, Linux, and macOS.
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).
Qt Creator supports generic projects, so you can import existing projects that do not use qmake or CMake. This enables you to use Qt Creator as a code editor and to fully control the steps and commands used to build the project.
Qt Creator can open projects that use the Autotools build system. You can build and run the projects directly from Qt Creator.
