"QT UI Development"

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.

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.

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.

What business 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.

"""The best stage to develop an application """

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.

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.

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.

What business 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

What do you like best?

Qt Creator is a cross-stage C++, JavaScript and QML incorporated improvement condition. What I like most is the immense scope of potential outcomes that this stage offers: It incorporates a visual debugger, default compilers and bunches of libraries that makes it extremely simple to use.I utilized it to make interfaces to associate with 3D and physical models, and it is exceptionally simple to utilize and learn. You can embed catches, layers and all that you have to make a simple to-utilize window that adjusts to resizing and keeping the items set up.

What do you dislike?

In some cases it is a touch of befuddling how to set the layers to keep every one of the catches and parts together or at a settled separation. In any case, it's somewhat simple and you learn it truly quick.

"QT Creator, an IDE based on the Qt application framework"

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.

What do you dislike?

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.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I'd recommend Qt Creator as a good quality, low-cost multi-platform IDE. I've certainly used worse!

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

We use Qt Creator to program our core application and it's form designed to build the GUI interface. The form builder is especially helpful and time saving for building the complex user interfaces we need. Qt Creator also allows you to easily decide which libraries and compilers you wish to use, and you can easily save these settings in their own profiles for easy switching

"More than an IDE, it's everything you need"

What do you like best?

The Qmake system is really reliable, I used it for many projects, even complex ones and it's really simple to link multiple projects, to create test versions, especially with Qt Test. Moreover, it's compatible with almost everything, and allows to use qt really easily.

What do you dislike?

I feel it weird that the search engine (to search a word in files or to find a file) is not more obvious to find. It's not easy to find in the interface, in visual studio it's very intuitive, reliable and fast. The interface personnalisation is quite poor and it's not especially easy to configure all the settings. Moreover, it's not easy to share your settings with others or simple with another desktop.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Qt is suited for every type of project. For very small ones ( like exercises for school ) or for big ones ( a complete project with multiple dependencies ). It's free for a personal or a student use so it stays very practical. It is particularly suited for Graphical User Interfaces ( GUI ) and of course, for Qt development. Don't overlook Qt Creator for Android development as it has a brand new support in that matter.

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

We needed to create a user interface and qt is clearly the framework to look for. It has a an enormous support, and a graphical design interface. It's

"It is a powerful and amazing software"

What do you like best?

I used it to create interfaces to interact with 3D and physical models, and it is very easy to use and learn. You can insert buttons, layers and everything you need to create an easy-to-use window that adapts to resizing and keeping the objects in place.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it is a little confusing how to set the layers to keep all the buttons and parts together or at a fixed distance. But it's a bit easy and you learn it really fast.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want to work with OpenGL and interact with 3D models, lights, physics and this, this is your application. Easy to use, free and really complete.

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

I had to create an interface where users load 3D models, they can move them and activate or deactivate gravity, collision and transparency, insert lights, a lot of different objects to interact with models to take snapshots.

"Qt Creator is exactly what you need if you want to use the Qt framework "

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.

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.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it out as it is free and easy to understand. Most people code in C++, however, there are language bindings that allow other languages such as Java, Python, and Go which is what we use. So don't be put off if C++ isn't your thing.

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

We primarily develop a cloud based system that interacts through a web browser. However, a client in a remote African country wanted a version that ran on their local servers as there are constant internet issues. We used Qt Creator to create the UI and it was easy to use and implemented all of our features quickly. Without it we would not have been able to develop as fast as we did.

Qt Creator is a cross-platform C++, JavaScript and QML integrated development environment. What I like most is the huge range of possibilities that this platform offers: It includes a visual debugger, default compilers and lots of libraries that makes it really easy to use.

What do you dislike?

On the other hand, what I like least about Qt creator is the lack of updates in their own libraries.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend Qtcreator to other programmers since this tool is really powerful and they will get really good results.

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

Thanks to the Qt creator platform we have been able to develop different applications of predictive analytics, obtaining great results.

"The IDE for human beings"

What do you like best?

I like that Qt Creator is a modern IDE with all the modern features that a developer in 2016 should have. Simple interface, great functionalities, awesome debugger, god-like auto-completion, and a lot more features.

What do you dislike?

I dislike maybe the lack of fuzzy search for files and jump to files directly by typing their name. I worked a lot with Sublime Text, and this is a feature that I uses a lot in big projects. I find the lack of it somehow disturbing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are building an application with a Graphical User Interface, Qt is the framework to look for. With their amazing IDE, Qt Creator, building these applications will be a breeze. It works just perfectly. And the applications are portable, something very important if your user base is using different OSs.

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

I am building a graphical application for a computer vision solution in which the user needs to work with multiple tabs and videos and annotations ... etc. Qt and Qt creator style of building these GUI applications make it easy for me to quickly build and add features to the application.

"Easy and full-featured cross-platform IDE"

What do you like best?

Qt Creator presents a lot of interesting features that I found useful:

- It is open source.

- It is supported on Windows, Linux, and macOS.

- It is fast and fully keyboard navigable.

- It supports multiple languages.

- It has a beautiful and modern UI.

- It is easy to use. 

- It has a very decent debugger.

What do you dislike?

I can't really find anything that i dislike. Qt Creator is fulfilling all my needs as for now. Maybe, the only thing that bothered me was its poor multi-window mode support. Apart from that, everything else was fine.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend QT and its IDE Qt Creator for anyone who wants to build an application with a Graphical User Interface that is portable and performant on all the supported systems (Linux, macOS, Windows). This means a lesser effort for a broader user base. Also, Qt Creator make creating this type of applications a fun process that make the developer and the project manager both happy.

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

I am working currently on creating a GUI interface for an annotation tool. This tool is a part from a Computer Vision learning framework that we are developing. Qt Ability to create graphical applications dealing with videos and its integration with OpenCV were the perfect tool set for our use case. Qt Creator that came with Qt was the IDE-to-go with for building our application, and it was the right choice.

"Best C++ library and IDE"

What do you like best?

This is my first C++ UI design and programming IDE. I absolutely love it. It has powerful library the can make nearly every of your idea true. With the clear and instructive documents, C++ is not that intimidating anymore. I recommend it to intermediate C++ developer who want to start UI design.

What do you dislike?

I have not found anything I don't like yet.

Recommendations to others considering the product

To those who want to develop cross platform desktop application with C++, this is the perfect IDE to start.

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

Its library is powerful and easy to use. It also has lots of tutorials that help you start.

"Best IDE for creating apps in Qt"

What do you like best?

The flexibility it provides to the users is great. Features like Auto complete, Debug, Build, Clean, provision to attach Valgrind etc..are mind blowing.

It sticks on to the same standard shortcuts for compile, build, auto complete etc which most of the other applications use.

QML support and other supports it provides are very much appreciable.

Excellent for cross platform app development.

Qt Designer- The best application user interface with the integrated editor.

Makes a user Build, run, and deploy Qt projects that target multiple desktop and mobile platforms, such as Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Android, BlackBerry 10, embedded Linux, iOS, and QNX

Great that Python, Ruby, Java bindings can be used to this.

What do you dislike?

Occasional Crashing and freezing disrupts its name a little. It could be great if there was a provision to integrate other text editors to it so that developers who have expertise in other editors could easily use the same.

Qt is growing very big so it is hard to learn it without external help. Fortunately once you get the hang of things, all becomes much easier

Destroying developers skill to do things: CPP developers are forced to think the Qt way rather than proper CPP way to do the development. In fact ruining a CPP developers skill on pure CPP application development.

Issues with installing database drivers.

Very Heavy: requires vast memory for compilation

Single Threaded: ui updations can only be handled from a single thread which really makes it hard to develop multi threaded applications effectively.

QMake is outdated (and complicated for more advanced projects) and everyone knows that. Trolls are looking for a better build tool even now.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Refer the Qt documentation. An excellent unavoidable thing a Qt developer should try with.

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

Developing embedded Linux applications as well as windows desktop applications.

Cross platform development capability is the main thing I like about it.

"qt review"

What do you like best?

Simply put, Qt creator is the best (and arguably the only reasonable) solution to develop Qt based application with multiplatform in mind. In addition to the polished interface, Qt creator have a good code completion and debugger integration.

In can also be used for many other sort of development in python and java, and with the new android platform support it become a serious competitor for more fledged IDE.

What do you dislike?

It would be nice if if the interface was less clumped with the vertical bar to the left that take a large porting of the screen real estate.

The plugins system is not as rich as other IDE or editor and that's a shame.

There is a vim but no emacs keybinding integration by default

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you plan to develop a multi platform application with a gui interface, Qt is a very serious option. With that in mind, nothing beats Qt-creator for Qt development.

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

Developing GUI application for linux can be a very painful experience if you adopt the classic editors as emacs and vim. Using Qt creator is a nice boost to productivity with a tool that can work as an interface designer and code editor.

"A worthy alternative to visual studio"

What do you like best?

Integrate multiple compilers, with support for cmake and qt's own project handling system-qmake for a seamless project handling experience. IDE comes with all tools expected out of a modern IDE. Additionally, creation of UI is easy with the designer. The plugin to VS is an added bonus

What do you dislike?

The debugger can sometimes be messy. Atom performs much better with respect to version control.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Qt is a great alternative to many IDE out there if you are planning to develop a front end and a back end product on the same platform of C++

"Qt creator is a solid IDE for C++ development"

What do you like best?

The ease by which a GUI can be added to already existing C++ code base

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.

What business 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.

"Great IDE for C/C++"

What do you like best?

I am using Qt Creator both on Windows and Linux and I have found this IDE as quite fast and easy-to-use, great for C/C++ programming (and of course stuff using Qt). It's lightweight and offers enough options to set up your programming environment.

What do you dislike?

Qt Creator does not have a lot of themes and settings of default content for *.pro files could be also a bit easier to find (so the user will not have to look it up in program files).

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are searching for good IDE for C/C++, Qt Creator should be one of the adepts - one of the great features is it's support for most modern compilers (MinGW on Windows for example, GCC/Clang on Linux).

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

Programming in C/C++, mainly pure without Qt. Great as an IDE for Linux because of integration of valgrind memory analyzer.

"Great syntax highlighting and auto-completion "

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.

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.

"More than 5 years of C/C++ code editing in the QtCreator."

What do you like best?

Amond others Linux tools this one looks like real IDE. Nice syntax highlighting, fast navigation, fast search, configurable for custom builds. Free for Linux in case of usage as IDE for C/C++.

What do you dislike?

Indexing doesn't update so quick as expected. Sometimes highlighting is breaking for some pieces of code without any noticeable reason. Doesn't always work correctly with C macro highlighting, not always highlights correctly the complex types. Very complex approach to create initial app on Qt with visual editor.

"Good IDE for cross-platform development"

What do you like best?

Qt Creator is an advanced and free IDE on Linux/Win/Mac, which is actually very rare. If you are on Linux platform, it'll be hard to find another IDE comparable to Qt Creator.

What do you dislike?

The speed is sometimes not very good. And it occasionally crashes. Also, CJK support is not good enough, especially on Linux platform.

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

I've used Qt Creator for C/C++ development. The cross-platform feature of Qt Libraries is just overwhelming. I think it's probably the only usable GUI library for cross-platform application development.

As with any new API, most of the documentation that I find assumes that I already can read their minds. I struggle to determine the basic information that other documentation writers deem to "go without saying".

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

Creating a GUI app as a frontend for a process-intensive task so that a non-technical person could use it.

"Great C++ editor"

What do you like best?

Integration with Qt libraries

Cross platform

What do you dislike?

autocompletion not always perfect (at least not as Visual Studio)

rare crashes

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

development of fast prototyped state machines for embedded products.

We mocked up the low-level drivers and Qt creator allowed us to use the same libraries as in the embedded product to design the state machine.

Team uses different OSes, therefore Qt creator was the ideal choice

"The most advanced Linux C++ IDE"

What do you like best?

It's a wonderful IDE to use for developing C++ applications, let alone developing with Qt. It's comparable to Visual Studio on Windows.

What do you dislike?

No global menu support on Ubuntu. It also needs better built in support for ccache. Editing pro files can be tricky cross platform.
