Qt Designer/QWidget vs QML

    You can't compare QML with QtDesigner, since QtDesigner is just a tool to easily create QWidget GUIs.

    It's more like QWidget vs / or QML and in most cases, it's a combination of both.

    QWidgets are more standard / classical, while with QML, you can do more fancy stuff (design orientated)

    for a while now QtCreators also comes with a Designer for QML pages.

    It is roughly the same quality as the designer for QWidgets, which means if you want to deviate (too much) from the standard you'll have to write it in code anyway ;)

    They are both good, and in the end totally depends on what you prefer.

    I started with pure QWidgets and now a days only make QML applications 🤷‍♂️
