Autotools Support for Qt Creator

Openismus gave me the opportunity to write a autotools plugin for Qt Creator. The plugin is available for download at Please check the README file for installation instructions.

The plugin allows to load an autotools project and offers the following functionality:
  • Syntax highlighting for files
  • Automatic project tree update if a file or the file has been changed
  • Out of source builds
  • Configuration of build steps
  • Code completion
The project is in a very early state and has not been tested yet by a broad user base. Any feedback would be very welcome!
