Embedding an ncurses window into a QT widget GUI
simozz last edited by simozz
I would like to develope my own small text editor with ncurses with a QT GUI.
What is the best way to achieve it, and making GUI objects to interact with ncurses ?
Simply said, I would like to achieve the same that gVim does with GTK libs.
@simozz Why do you want to mix ncurses with Qt?
gVim integrates an existing text mode application into a GUI one.
If you're starting to implement your own app I don't see the point to mix ncurses with Qt.

You are right to say that there is not need to mix QT and ncurses, and I already know it since I have already worked with QT.
However I am also courious how this implementation (QT + ncurses) should be done. Do you know, briefly, how can it be done ?
https://github.com/ohwgiles/quilte is a project that does this more or less - it's a terminal emulator written in Qt. It has dependencies however and will not work on Windows, if I get it right.
But it should show you the principle.
