What Qt Tool Chain do you use?
Hi, dear #QtDN!
I am happy to post this thread here to discuss about Qt Tool Chains. I had my own one and I want to hear other opinions!
- Qt 4.8.2
- Qt 4.8.2 (static for windows)
- Qt 5 from Git
- Qt SDK
For work, I primarily just use the latest and greatest in the commercial SDK, (our official internal stuff is mostly 4.7 and 4.8) but I also maintain some legacy stuff (got a trusty and well-used version of 3.3.8, a 2.2 build, and I think there's still a 1.4 build around somewhere -- we have some old apps that still do their job well enough to avoid having to be rewritten.)
That's just the desktop stuff. Also have Symbian and MeeGo toolchains around as well, of course, for doing some of that pesky mobile stuff.
Also have 4 and 5 built from git just for playing around with. Plus a few others lying around in various states of repair and disrepair.
I use Qt SDK primary for mobile apps development. Honestly recently I have to use Eclipse and/or Xcode more often than Qt Creator because of the market trends.
I'm using Qt SDK with latest stable Qt Creator 2.5.
p.s. sometimes I give a try to latest snapshots also, mainly for Qt Creator.
I'm using Qt 4.8.2 with QtCreator 2.5.0 as IDE, "MinGW Distro by nuwen":http://nuwen.net/mingw.html with GCC 4.6.3 as compiler and Python GDB from some version of SDK as debugger.
At work I'm using Qt 4.8.1 with MSVS 2008
At home I use QtSDK (latest)
We're still at 4.7.3 at the moment, though I do use the lastest Creator! We're using MinGW on Windows 7.
Qt 4.8.2 from git and Qt 5 from git, built using MinGW-w64 4.7.1 i686 and x86_64 and MSVC2010.
QtCreator from git using Qt 4.8.2.
For all those who do not want to compile Qt or QtCreator on their own (it may take a while) but still want to use the latest and greatest I suggest a visit at "builds.qt-project.org":http://builds.qt-project.org/.
I am working with 4.7.2 and msvc 2005 on win 7, 64 bit.
With 4.7.2 on ubuntu linux with Qt creator in a vbox.
I have installed also the SDK with MinGW on win7, but I did not really use it, yet.
I mainly use Qt SDK for windows
Static build for OSX ( Mac )
and I use necassties and iOS plugins as well :)
- latest Qt Creator that works on the platform (2.5 on Windows, 2.4.x on the Mac)
- Qt 4.8.2 manually built on Mac OS X and Windows/MinGW toolchain
- some older Qt statically built on the Mac for some other project
- no SDK, no prebuilt binaries
