Qt Installation Size Mac (Open License)



  • I just tried downloading and installing Qt on my mac but the installer tells me the final size of installation is 28GiB which is insanely huge! Is this normal or have I downloaded the wrong thing? I looked it up internet and most people have from 700MB to 1.4GB but I can't find a valid answer.
    Thanks in advance!



  • I dowloaded the regular installer for macOS but I gave a look at all he packages that were going to be installed, basically the "IOS" package was something like 22GB large so I obviously chose not to download that one.

    @FastBanana What exactly do you download? Do you use the online installer? If so what did you select there (I hope not everything)?
    28GB is definitely way too much.
