I have a project setup with a couple of Apps with a shared library, this is all built nicely using a SUBDIRS project, where the apps depend on the shared library.
TEMPLATE = subdirs
SUBDIRS = app1 app2 sharedLib
app1.depends = sharedLib
app2.depends = sharedLib
Each app also contains a number of tests, with
CONFIG += testcase set.
This creates a
check target so we can run all unit test from the top level .pro using
The problem is that some of the app tests require the presence of the code within the sharedLib, therefore it needs to be discoverable according to each platforms library lookup rules.
On Windows one option is to have the sharedLib location on the
PATH, on linux we can add the sharedLib location to
LD_LIBRARY_PATH, on mac
One solution is to just set the location of the built shared lib before running
and this works, but it seems a little redundant as it is the build scripts themselves that are building the shared library so they know the path to the sharedLib binary location, which can be referenced from within .pro/pri files at:
So, is there anyway to set the
PATH/LD_LIBRARY_PATH/DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH from within the project files for the purposes of the
make check command?
