Cross-platform application and UI framework for C++ developers.

Overview

Qt is a cross-platform application C++ framework that is used for developing application software with a graphical user interface (GUI), and also used for developing non-GUI programs such as command-line tools and consoles for servers. Example cross-platform applications which use Qt include Autodesk Maya, FreeCAD, Mathematica, Google Earth, Linux KDE GUI, OpenSCAD, Skype, Ubuntu, and VLC media player.

Definitely the best cross-platform C++ framework ever! Good C++ knowledge and a few Qt extensions is enough to create excellent, professional looking GUI applications, with a look and feel typical for the operating system used. The installation is clean and easy. On the Mac, Objective-C programming skills are not needed at all. With a Qt-Creator one can design and create GUI in minutes. Of course, the same can be created "by hand" from scratch. Qt is based on a "signals-slots" concept, similar to the "sender-receiver" used in OSX. It is easy to learn, the application examples and the on-line documentation are very helpful. Qt is free for non commercial use, so one can learn it as long as needed. Important - on the Mac, the newest version of XCode (with Command Line Tools) must be installed. I am not connected with Digia Inc. (the current owner of Qt) in any way - I have just used it for over 2 years and I am excited about all its features.

to work with the qt-creator is like making one step forward and two steps back – very hard to handle, awful GUI and where are the scrollbars in the UI? I had to change the settings in my system preferences to make them stay visible.

I thought about using Qt for a new app of mine so I had a look at their website. Please correct me if I'm wrong but if I get this right then Qt is free only for open source (GPL v3 and LGPL v2.1) projects but if you want to sell your software then it is a MONTHLY $399 subscription?

P.S. Don't they have something cheaper for small developers? I don't exactly think I'm an Enterprise, but there seems to be only one commercial license …

Qt can be used for commercial software with the LGPL version.

Thanks Kevin, that makes more sense now. Will give it a try then :-)

Just to be clear, Qt is LGPL which means that you can distribute non-free software with it. And just to be even more clear, neither LGPL or GPL has anything at all against selling software. You can charge for your software if you want. Just note that if you distribute LGPL libraries then you have to provide the source code for the library including any modifications.

Netbeans & Eclipse focus on cross platform applications based on Java. And, I've used both for Java application development. However, Java is not available in such places as iOS. This summer, I discovered the Qt for iOS Preview starting with the Qt 5.1 release. As examples, Qt based applications 'SubAttack' and 'QtQuicksand' were available free in Apple iTunes App Store. I have also found the Qt5 to be a useful IDE for even generic, class console based C/C++ applications. GUI applications were reasonably easy to create with the help for community YouTube tutorials. The Qt has worked well for applications with serial connections to the Arduino. So, I currently use Qt Creator as my primary C/C++ IDE and Qt Library as my preferred cross platform toolkit.
