Build VESC_Tool on QT Creator
This is an alternate flow for QT build of VESC_Tool for macOS shown here https://gowrav.com/qt-for-vesc-on-macos/ but without terminal
The source code can be obtained here https://github.com/vedderb/vesc_tool and one can download the project as zip file from github directly by following this link https://codeload.github.com/vedderb/vesc_tool/zip/master. Extract the files into the home directory under the folder vesc_tool
You can install the latest version of QT framework by using the QT unified installer for macOS available here http://download.qt.io/official_releases/online_installers/qt-unified-mac-x64-online.dmg SignUp/SignIn with your QT credentials and use the appropriate license [I am using opensource license].
By default the location of installation is user home folder i.e $HOME/QT/ Next up the components, choose the stable release version and install all the packages/modules under v5.12.7 along side the Developer and Design Tools.
This will take a long time to download and will occupy plenty of your disk space.
Once the installation is done we can verify the components present by opening the folder structure under $HOME folder, make sure you have qt v5.12.7 inside it.
Now start QT creator from the finder and open the vesc_tool.pro project file under the extracted folder using File > Open File or Project…
Configure project in the Projects Tab while selecting only the necessary Kits, in this case [Desktop Qt 5.12.7 clang 64bit] and hit configure.
The project is built and Run using the UI button at the bottom left corner of the IDE.
This will take 5 minutes and once Successful, the VESC_Tool will open up.!
