Correspondance between Qt5 components and meta-qt5 recipes


Hello everyone,

I don't know if it is the right place or if my question belong more in the 
  • openembedded-architecture mailing list.

    I'm trying to build an image with my Qt5 based application. I know which Qt5 component I need to build and to run my application but I'm struggeling to understand what are the corresponding recipes to put in DEPENDS and RDEPENDS according to the components I use.

    For example: if I want to build a graphical application with image display support I would need (if I understand correctly):
    for svg support: qtsvg in RDEPENDS 
    but for gif support: qtbase in DEPENDS with  PACKAGECONFIG_append = "gif" in a qtbase_%.bbappend
    It is a little bit confusing for me. 

    My question is:
    Is there any documentation or table mapping Qt5 components or libraries and the corresponding recipe in the meta-Qt5 layer (with the correct PACKAGEGROUP to set if needed)?

    Thank you very much,
    Have a great day,
