app in qt weighs too much.



  • goodnight, my question is as follows, finish a program in Qt and generate all the resources you need with the windeployqt command, and what happens is that the resulting folder weighed MB, that's what surprised me, more than a question It's a comment, I'd like to know what you think about that, since that's really not very nice.

    How many MB?

    Did you make a Debug build or a Release build?

    I'd like to know what you think about that, since that's really not very nice.

    I think that modern computers have lots of space, so it's not a big problem.

    Large Qt programs can run on small devices, like mobile phones, embedded systems, and cars.

    If you really want to make your app even smaller, you can build Qt from source to exclude features that you don't need: https://blog.qt.io/blog/2017/05/31/qt-lite-qt-5-9-lts/ However, this is a lot of hard work. I don't think it is worth it for Windows PCs.



  • okay. I apologize for the above, you are right friend, deploy the application in debug mode, again I apologize, thank you anyway for your response. regards
