            Build Qt/cmake based project in GitHub Actions
            Asked 2021-Sep-08 at 20:30

            I'm using Qt 5.12.11 in my project. As I wanted to use the software both on linux and win, I selected gcc compiler (I use MSYS2, so gcc is 10.3.0). The local build is ok both for linux and win, but the build via GitHub Actions fails on finding the qt (no matter if I set CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH or Qt5_DIR or not).

            So this is where I'm stuck for a while. Has anyone encountered such problems or have any ideas on it?

            cmake using GitHub Actions MSYS2
            Asked 2021-Jan-21 at 12:51

            I am trying to convert an MSYS2 build from azure pipeline CI (which works) to github actions.

            I am now stuck with cmake not being recognised as a command.

            My current (simplified) yaml is the following:

            The name of the package for CMake is wrong. Here is the list of packages in the MSYS repository that contain cmake in the name:

            Install setup-msys2

            setup-msys2 is a JavaScript GitHub Action (GHA) to setup an MSYS2 environment (i.e. MSYS, MINGW32, MINGW64, UCRT64, CLANG32, and/or CLANG64 shells) using the GHA toolkit for automatic caching.
            It is common to test some package/tool on multiple environments, which typically requires installing different sets of packages through option install. GitHub Actions' strategy and matrix fields allow to do so, as explained in Configuring a build matrix and jobs.<job_id>.strategy.matrix. See, for instance:.
