Hello Kamyar Mirzazadeh Moghadam,

You can extract the toolchain for Qt using the following command from within the bitbake environment:

$ bitbake meta-toolchain-qt5

The resulting file is an executable that will install the toolchain in your system. You may set it on Eclipse, Qt Creator or other IDE if you wish to have a development environment. There are some threads concerning this but there is not an updated guide for it.

The following document may be of help but it has not been updated in a while:

I hope this helps!

Hello Kamyar Mirzazadeh Moghadam,

Bitbake is part of the Yocto project. Please check the BSP Release documentation for information on how to setup a host for Yocto and initializing Bitbake.

You do not mention which BSP you are looking for, but you can find the available BSPs documentation on the following link under Supporting Information:

I hope this helps!
