Bash shell scripts for Windows & Linux development with Qt

December 15, 2019

With the release of WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux), the boundaries between Windows and Linux are blurring: you can now use a Bash shell on Windows and run native Linux apps straight from the shell. This talk will explore the new possibilities that WSL is opening up for Qt developers working on cross-platform apps, mainly around build and deployment infrastructure. For example: how to build Qt applications on Windows from a Bash shell script, how to use a shared Debian package repository across Windows and Linux to manage dev packages in a cross-platform way, plus tips and tricks. Examples and demos will be based on Bluescape Enterprise, a large-scale touchscreen native application, which was ported from Linux to Windows without using a single line of batch script.
