Investigate removing usage of symlinks for QML modules in macOS app bundles

    XMLWordPrintable

    Details

    • Platform/s:
      macOS

      Description

      During CMake deployment API review it was mentioned that for macOS app bundles, macdeloyqt (and some CMake internal code) create symlinks to the qml libraries/plugins which are placed in the PlugIns dir, to the Resources subfolder, to ensure the qml engine finds qmldir and friends, and to ensure that the bundle is sign-able.

      Ulf brought up that he has an idea on how we could get rid of the symlinks, and somehow simplify the whole scenario.

      This task exists to remind us that we need to extract this information from Ulf and try to implement it.
