Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Sponge

In which I setup an IDE for my coding…

As with most of my Tinker posts to do with computers this is a guide to something I might need to do again in the future. You can probably find out how to do it online but I struggled with bits and am putting it here for my own and other’s reference.

I am currently demonstrating a C++ lab at the University and it’s good to be able to run the example code myself ahead of time. Also I am continuing to teach myself C++ as part of Project Euler.

QT Creator

QT Creator is an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) which features (among other things):

  • C/C++ support
  • QML support – allows you to make GUIs quickly
  • Cross platform compiling
  • App publishing tools
  • The awesome tag-line “One framework to rule them all”

You can find out more at the QT Project website.*
