Meson Build Configuration

Settings are grouped by category by Meson. All items are user modifiable except backend which is forced to Ninja, buildtype, debug as well as optimization to ensure a good compatibility with Qt Creator.

Each setting type has its own editor. To modif any setting, double-click it, either edit the field, or select your choice depending on the control. To apply changes, select Apply configuration changes. This will trigger a meson configure command if there were any configuration changes. If for any reason the build directory configuration is broken, select Wipe project. This should fix any build directory.

Note: Any modified setting will remain in bold until Apply configuration changes is selected.
