Please note that as of October 24, 2014, the Nokia Developer Wiki will no longer be accepting user contributions, including new entries, edits and comments, as we begin transitioning to our new home, in the Windows Phone Development Wiki. We plan to move over the majority of the existing entries. Thanks for all your past and future contributions.
Archived:Getting started with Qt
Qt (pronounced "cute") is a cross platform development framework which allows you to target both mobile devices and desktop platforms.
Note: Qt UIs have historically been developed using cross-platform C++ libraries based on QWidget, and more recently on QGraphicsView. While these UIs are still available and supported for desktop platforms, you may find that Qt Quick is more effective for creating more fluid animated UIs.
QWidget based UIs should not be used for mobile devices; while the may "work" they are not optimised for any mobile platform, and do not come with framework support for the sorts view/page based UIs most common on mobile devices.
We recommend you start with the Getting Started with Qt section on the static site. This explains how to download the latest Qt SDK. This contains the Qt Creator IDE, which in turn contains documentation and everything else you need to get started.
The static site has links to many other resources, and we include a few additional links below.
