I am looking to build Qt Desktop and Android app, how to set this up?

There is a Qt docker image on Docker Hub: https://hub.docker.com/r/rabits/qt/

But, how to use it? Should I copy the qmake file from Desktop to Pipeline or sth?

Hi Simon,

To use this particular docker image you need to specify it in the image section of your bitbucket-pipelines.yml file. When the pipeline starts the commands you specify in the step section of the yaml will be executed within this docker container. To get started I recommend running the container locally and seeing that your build works within the container. From that point you'll need to specify a yml similar to this
image: rabits/qt

- step:
- build commands here

    - step:
          - sudo apt-get -qq update && sudo apt-get install -qq -y <packages>
		  - mkdir ~/build && cd ~/build
          - qmake -r ~/src
          - make -j4
          - make install INSTALL_ROOT=$HOME/dist
          - androiddeployqt --input ~/src/<android json> --output ~/dist --deployment bundled --gradle --release

It is likely you'll have to modify these commands slightly to accomodate your specific file locations and build quirks.
