Programming Language Support & Language Bindings

The Qt API is implemented in C++, and provides additional features for easier cross-platform development. QML – introduced with Qt Quick is a CSS and JavaScript-like declarative, language designed to describe the user interface of a program: both what it looks like, and how it behaves. Bindings to Qt exist for several other languages, including Python, Ring, Go, Rust, PHP, and Java™.

C++ Development with Qt

Qt provides an intuitive C++ class library with a rich set of application build blocks for C++ development. Qt goes beyond C++ in the areas of inter-object communication and flexibility for advanced GUI development. Qt adds the following features to C+:

QML Development with Qt Quick

QML is a declarative, JavaScript-based language designed to describe the user interface of a program: both what it looks like, and how it behaves. In QML, a user interface is specified as a tree of objects with properties, like in JSON.

  • JavaScript, HTML and CSS skills can be used to code complete apps
  • Optimized for touch-based, animated mobile UIs
  • Includes a set of graphical and behavioral building blocks: QML Types
  • No C++ knowledge required for UI creation, while it can be extended with C++
