    This is a QmlWeb-based GUI viewer for *.qml files.

    Based on QmlWeb and Electron.

    This is not a replacement to Qt QML by any means and should not be used in production.

    The only purpose of this tool is to test QmlWeb and visually compare the rendered results with Qt QML output (e.g. qmlscene).

    Installation and usage

    Prerequisites

    You need Node.js with npm to install and run qmlweb-viewer.

    See Installing Node.js via package manager or Node Version Manager for more detailed instructions on that.

    Local install (to a subdirectory):

    npm i qmlweb-viewer
    ./node_modules/.bin/qmlweb-viewer path-to-file.qml

    This way, qmlweb-viewer will be installed into the node_modules subdirectory.

    Global install

    See Fixing npm permissions to fix permissions issues, running npm as root is not recommended.

    npm install -g qmlweb-viewer
    qmlweb-viewer path-to-file.qml

    This way, you can use qmlweb-viewer from any directory, it will be added into your PATH.

    Debugging

    Launch with the --debug flag, e.g. qmlweb-viewer --debug path-to-file.qml to open a Developer Tools window alongside with your QML file.

    Using with a development version of QmlWeb

    To use with QmlWeb from the master branch (or any other non-release version), follow the installation steps, then remove the ./node_modules/qmlweb/lib directory and replace it with a symlink to a ./lib directory of your development QmlWeb version.
