Qt can be used for application development for a wide range of target platforms, like:

  • Desktop: Linux, macOS, Windows
  • Embedded and RTOS: Linux, QNX, VxWorks, Windows
  • Mobile: Android, iOS, Windows

For in depth information and more exotic platforms see the official documentation: Supported Platforms. See also Supported Devices.

Even if not listed there, with some extra work you may also be able to target platforms like:

  • Various BSDs
  • Haiku
  • Windows versions older than Windows XP


Depending on your target you'll need a suitable host platform. For specific information see the lists of supported platforms mentioned above. For a quick overview see the following table:

If your host platform is Desktop Linux but your favorite Linux distribution is not listed in the official documentation then don't worry: Many distributions have ready compiled packages and in case not, you can compile Qt from source. Almost all modern Desktop Linux distributions are suitable host and target platforms.
