Is there a transformer to create a index file for my shapefile output?
As a .qix file on QGIS.

FME should support QIX index files for Shape in FME 2019.1 For now, if you want FME to create a QIX file for QGIS then use a FeatureWriter followed by ogrinfo in a SystemCaller.
There is a feature "write spatial index" in the Dataset Writer. FME creates two ArcGIS-like index files, .sbn and .sbx. When I open the shapefile using QGIS, the data loads quicker.
