🔧 Class and project wizards for QtCreator


Placing, or linking to (ln -s), the templates folder inside the ~/.config/QtProject/qtcreator/ folder (in Linux) will add both an Urho3D Project and an Urho3D C++ Class to the New File or Project dialog in QtCreator.

Feel free to fork and modify these wizards to your own liking.

Class wizard

In case of the class wizard this will open a dialog allowing you to name your new class and specify its base class. Instead of typing the name of the base class there’s also a drop down containing a selection of commonly inherited-from Urho3D classes to pick from.

  • A Context* is added to the constructor’s parameters if a class is created with an Urho3D class - that is known by the wizard - as its base class.
  • For classes inheriting from Drawable it also adds unsigned char drawableFlags.
  • When LogicComponent is picked as superclass RegisterObject, OnNodeSet and Update functions are added.

Both the header and source file will be added to the .pro file and version control.

Project wizard

When creating a project with the wizard it should compile after linking to the Urho3D directory from inside the project folder.

Don’t forget to link to resource folders from inside each build directory as well.

New to engine and curious about capabilities

Awesome! Actually, you can place custom wizards into ~/.config/QtProject/qtcreator/templates/wizards/, not /usr/share/…, they’ll be local for user


Ah thanks, that saves some sudoing. :slight_smile:


Txx, this is useful!
