Wow: 2020 and still no QWebEnginge for mingw



  • I was sure that after years this has been fixed.
    But ist still the same situation.
    No webbrowser for mingw users. WebKit has dropped and WebEngine is not usable.

    Can someone explain, why Qt is not moving to clang for win32.

    I love QtCreator, QtWidget and the "all in one approach" and i never understand
    the use of QML on desktop applications. or the need to install visual studio.

    I don't want to install several tools, specialy on different company computers.
    Why is nobody off the qt developers thinks: "Hey, we should fix that"?
    Can't the rest of Qt be compiled under clang?

    I realy would like to understand!

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    For that, you should go to google and ask for that there. QtWebEngine platform support depends on Chromium and on Windows they do not support MinGW.



  • Thanks SGaist,
    why don't we chang to CLand as the main compiler for Qt?
    BTW: Do they support gcc on linux?
    Thanks

    Qt can be compiled with CLang on linux, maybe also with clang-cl on Windows

    Yes, why should they not?
