Call for testing cqtdeployer v1.1.0

Hi, I know that many people have problems with packing their qt applications in a snap package, especially when you need to use the latest version qt, and not everyone gets to collect qt from source. Especially for such people, the cqtdeployer utility was prepared,

This utility collects all the necessary dependencies of the application from your system, after which you just need to use the dump plugin to pack your application in a snap package.

I packed cqtdeployer in a snap to simplify the installation of this utility,
but unfortunately at the moment I could not solve all the problems associated with the robot application in an isolated container, and now it needs to be installed as a classic application

` snap install cqtdeployer --classic `

I ask all who may be interested or useful this utility to help with its testing

Packing qt applications has always been a huge pain in the a$$ so thank you very much for this effort. Now would it be possible for you to provide a real example of using this, e.g. an actual working snapcraft.yaml for a qt-based app that uses cqtdeployer?

Many thanks in any case!

Unfortunately now I can not do this, an example I will prepare today or tomorrow evening

my application first of all is used for deploy qt library then the Snap is packaging this way:

    snap install cqtdeployer --classic
    git clone
    cd Console-QtDeployer/examples/TestQMLWidgets
    cqtdeployer -bin ./build/TestQMLWidgets -qmake /path/to/your/qmake/bin/qmake -qmlDir ./ -targetDir ./distro
    snap install cqtdeployerexample_0.1_amd64.snap --dangerous



name: cqtdeployerexample # you probably want to 'snapcraft register <name>'
base: core18 # the base snap is the execution environment for this snap
version: '0.1' # just for humans, typically '1.2+git' or '1.3.2'
summary: simple example for packing with cqtdeployer # 79 char long summary
