26 June 2014

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?

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.
