Qt Landing Pages

Each module requires a landing page. These landing pages act as a hub, containing a list of relevant information for the reader. The reader should not spend much time in this page, but simply find the necessary link or information he or she needs.

Required components:

  • Title

The title should list the module name. For example, Qt Quick or Qt Core.

The page name of the landing name should be <module>-index.html*

For example, Qt SQL's landing page is in a file in qtbase/src/sql/qtsql.qdoc

 t SQL
 A module that provides a driver layer, SQL API layer, and a user
 interface layer for SQL databases.
  • Brief description

The brief description is short information on what features the module provides

  • Module overview

The module overview section lists the features, frameworks, submodules, or other things that the module presents. A good style would be to present the module as a solution to a problem. For example, "Qt Quick provides QML types for …" is a good description. Note that this section does not need a section title.

  • Getting Started Instructions on how to use the module. A small section on how to use the C++ classes or QML types should be listed. This is

important for the reader to know how to link to the module or how to include classes.

  • Reference section

The reference section contains a list articles, C++ classes, QML types, or examples.

For examples of a landing page:
