Qt porting on Apple's IOS



  • Hello Group,

    I am very much curious to know porting of Qt 5 Beta on IOS.

    Thanks to Bogdan for developing Qt Necessitas that helps in porting Qt application on Android. There's a very good forum for Necessitas, where I can ask lot of questions and get the answers and with forum help I successully deployed and see Qt app running on Android.

    Now I am interested to run same Qt app on IOS but unfortunately I don't find any forum actively supporting/working on Qt port for IOS.
    I could only locate following link http://mediator-software.com but not sure how to proceed after the download.

    Someone please guide me with steps for running Qt app on IOS like something similar to Necessitas.

    Regards
    Mohan

  • Hello Chris,

    Configuirng Qt IOS setup is little confusing to me. It is not as straight forward as Qt Android.

    I have read below link but still I feel information is not enough for beginner like me to do the set up.

  • Hi Mohan,

    there is also a README file contained in the UIKit folder which provides more details on the setup process.

    However, I'm afraid if you are an iOS beginner, I think getting everything of your application's Qt code to run properly on iOS is too time-consuming and you would be better off writing it in Obj-C, until iOS is properly supported by Qt :(

    If you can wait for a while, this is also an option: "we":http://v-play.net will provide a plugin system which makes it easy to mix iOS Obj-C and native C++ code from a Qt perspective. However, our release estimate for this feature is Q1-13.

    Cheers,
    Chris
