Porting desktop QWidgets application to Android



  • Reading http://doc.qt.io/qt-5/android-support.html, it seems like it is possible to port a desktop QWidgets application to Android. Is this really true? Finding it a little hard to believe. Are there any desktop QWidget-based applications I could have a look at?

    Hi!

    Is this really true?

    Yes.

    Finding it a little hard to believe.

    Why? :-)

    Are there any desktop QWidget-based applications I could have a look at?

    Yes. E.g., see: Qt Widgets Examples.



  • Awesome, thanks. If anyone has any real-world desktop QWidget-based applications they've ported to Android, would love to hear feedback and see the result.



  • Has anyone done this at all?

    I've done some more research and was advised that porting a desktopnQWidgets-based app to Android is not something you want to do just yet. Failing to find any examples of anyone successfully doing so strengthens those suspicions.



  • Of course people have done it. I have done it. There's nothing special or problematic in it. Just do it.



  • Show proof?

  • Cool, thanks!
