What do you like best?

For me, the most killer feature of Qt Creator is that it its humble resource needs and lightning quick response. It never leaves me waiting for anything. It has consistently felt responsive and stable as long as I have been using it (5 years) .

Another important feature that Qt Creator has is that it's native and cross platform. This means that it does not need any bloaty VM to be installed such as .NET framework, Java VM or similar. When you install Qt Creator it is a statically linked C++ application built natively for your platform.

Qt Creator is tightly linked to the Qt framework and has many features built in to support Qt such as graphical UI designers, UI resource manager, 3D asset management, Internationalization manager, debugger integration with support for Qt native types. It also has a test harness built in and support forthe Qt spesific build systems (qmake and qbs). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I would love to see support for more languages out of the box. I know there are plugins and available customizations for this. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Give it a shot, and log in to #qt on freenode if you have any questions. Usually the developers of Qt and Qt Creator lurk there and area happy to answer your questions. Also if you hit on a bug, remember that Qt and Qt Creator are open source projects and will happily receive bug reports. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I build software all day(work) and all night(fun). I find myself using Qt Creator even for tasks that it was not designed for. I edit and inspect sources. I manage software projects. I debug my code and manage the git repo from Qt Creator. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Setup and initial project creation is seamless, user interaction with tool and menus is intuitive. The UI creation tool is really useful. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There are some challenging limitations when third party libraries are brought in to a QT project. There are quirks with certain hardware platforms that we struggled with initially but through some forums posts were able to come up with solutions that worked for our embedded UI development team. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would definitely recommend seriously consider QT as a viable tool for UI development, especially if time to market is a higher priority. There is a learning curve to the library interaction but it's not insurmountable and with some persistence can easily be overcome. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

UI development. We were able to install the application from the QT Creator website (by googling it from our web browser) and bring it up on several embedded firmware engineer's personal laptops. From there getting the project going was quite easy and quick, within the first day we had code running on hardware and could start implementation and user experience feedback with the team.

What do you like best?

Qt Creator is a cross-organize C++, JavaScript and QML joined enhancement condition. What I like most is the huge extent of potential results that this stage offers: It consolidates a visual debugger, default compilers and bundles of libraries that makes it amazingly easy to use.I used it to make interfaces to connect with 3D and physical models, and it is particularly easy to use and learn. You can implant gets, layers and all that you need to make an easy to-use window that changes with resizing and keeping the things set up.The investigating and traceback usefulness is incredibly helpful when attempting to discover where an issue lies in your code. You can undoubtedly set breakpoints and hop to the segment of code you accept is causing the issue and see the neighborhood factors and their substance continuously. The UI/structure architect is a gigantic help when building complex interfaces, such things would require tedious manual XML section by hand generally. You can likewise review any UI you configuration by squeezing alt+shift+R which is useful when trying out how the measuring alternatives of the window will work and how it will influence your controls. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

At times it is a pinch of dumbfounding how to set the layers to keep all of the gets and parts together or at a settled division. Regardless, it's to some degree straightforward and you learn it really quick.It isn't the most adjustable IDE contrasted with Eclipse and Visual Studio, nonetheless, despite everything it works well. I use it on Ubuntu and Windows and dependably locate the last sets aside greater opportunity to setup before use. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Give it a shot as it is free and straightforward. A great many people code in C++, nonetheless, there are language ties that permit different dialects, for example, Java, Python, and Go which is the thing that we use. So don't be put off if C++ isn't your thing.Qt is appropriate for each kind of venture. For extremely little ones ( like activities for school ) or for enormous ones ( a total venture with different conditions ). It's free for an individual or an understudy use so it remains viable. It is especially appropriate for Graphical User Interfaces ( GUI ) and obviously, for Qt improvement. Try not to disregard Qt Creator for Android advancement as it has a fresh out of the box new help in that issue. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We principally build up a cloud based framework that communicates through an internet browser. In any case, a customer in a remote African nation needed an adaptation that kept running on their nearby servers as there are steady web issues. We utilized Qt Creator to make the UI and it was anything but difficult to utilize and actualized the majority of our highlights rapidly. Without it we would not have possessed the capacity to create as quick as we did.We use Qt Creator to program our center application and it's structure intended to manufacture the GUI interface. The structure manufacturer is particularly useful and efficient for building the intricate UIs we need. Qt Creator additionally enables you to effectively choose which libraries and compilers you wish to utilize, and you can without much of a stretch spare these settings in their very own profiles for simple exchanging Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The ease at which I can make a functioning UI and changes makes it my preferred IDE when I'm developing a UI. This is thanks to the form designer which saves you a lot of xml coding time and makes it easy to preview your changes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It is not the most customizable IDE compared to Eclipse and Visual Studio, however, it still functions well. I use it on Ubuntu and Windows and always find the latter takes more time to setup before use. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The ease by which a GUI can be added to already existing C++ code base Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The complexity. The code base of Qt has grown and morphed over time including all sorts of trends which makes it sometimes hard to find the best solution that will work in a modern setting. It has a clunky Microsoft feeling to it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The fast turnaround. For very simple problems such as adding sim GUI elements for a client it is usually very easy to simply use the graphical user interface of the qt editor rather than type the code itself. Yet when projects grow making GUI inside another GUI is not beneficial and there is the strength because it is easy to convert the XML to C/C++ code. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Qt Creator uses normal .pro-files, CMakeLists.txt, Makefiles.am, etc. for its projects and rarely needs special configuration for projects. Projects can be built on the command line as usual. Responsive UI, no need to use the mouse for the power users. Allows for the creation of a window based UI in a graphical editor, no code required to build the UI. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

QtCreator has lack of refactoring features. It's not even close to Resharper++ or CLion.

Totally outdated, still doesn't support C++11 features such as auto statements when using "Find Usage", etc. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Qt Creator's interface is clean and easy to understand. It has all the tools you need for console output, debugging, tracebacks and also includes useful functionality for jumping between functions and their definitions, and also between source and header files. The debugging and traceback functionality is extremely useful when trying to find where a problem lies in your code. You can easily set breakpoints and jump to the section of code you believe is causing the problem and see the local variables and their contents in real-time. The UI/form designer is a huge time saver when building complex interfaces, such things would require time-consuming manual XML entry by hand otherwise. You can also preview any UI you design by pressing alt+shift+R which is helpful when testing out how the sizing options of the window will work and how it will affect your controls.

It can occasionally crash, but this is fairly rare. Making sure you have the latest version on Linux can be a bit tricky if you're using a software manager, usually best to grab it from the website if you can. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
