Building a reusable library, that has no graphical interface, in QML, that has to make HTTP requests
I'm attempting to build a Qt Quick project that is not an application, but a library (in C++, I would be building a statically-linked library), and I would like this library to be able to make HTTP requests, but I'm not sure how to go about doing this. My concerns are:
- I'm not sure how to build/run a QML app without an interface. All the examples I've looked at seem to require me to have a graphical interface of some description (a Rectangle for instance), and hiding the interface still cases it to show up in the task bar.
I'm new to QML development, but not to Qt's C++ modules, and I'm not finding a lot of helpful information. Can anyone help me with this issue, and point me to some documentation that would help?
I don't quite get the point why are you trying to do this. Why do you need QML for this? C++ is more than well suited for that use case. Or maybe you just want the QML syntax (in that case, take a look at QBS project to see how to create custom QML languages)?
Ah, sorry for not being clear about my intentions. I'm trying to build an app using Ubuntu's new QML-based SDK, which has developers building app in pure QML. An example can be found "here":http://developer.ubuntu.com/resources/app-developer-cookbook/mobile/currency-converter-phone-app/. I'd like to build an app that interfaces with a third-party API, and I'd like to build that particular piece of functionality into a separate library.
