Official Node Editor in Qt?



  • Hi everyone,

    Recently I've seen an increase in node editing (graph based processing) in apps and I would like to use one in one of my apps. I currently don't have the time to write one from scratch, but is there a possibility that an official node editor widget could be bundled with Qt? These are just a few things that I would like.

    • I kind of like the look of the Blender node editor and I would like to replicate that
    • The option to choose between straight and curved node links/noodles
    • Custom node header color and icon

    Note that I have looked at https://github.com/paceholder/nodeeditor and other similar node editors, but they don't have everything I would like. Just some other information, I use PyQt/PySide.

    Thanks

    Hello and welcome.

    This is a user forum, i.e. users/developers just like yourself who use Qt. We not write/publish "official" anythings (though some people contribute to the open source code base of Qt). You can post your suggestions for enhancements to the Qt "bug" board, or to the Qt Company themselves. Though I wouldn't hold your breath for whole new features like this. Or, you can write the code yourself and contribute it to the community, which is always welcome :)

    As I said in the first post:

    But maybe one day I will. Until then I'll wait. :)
