First questions on Qt and bitcoin project



  • Working on a research project with the bitcoin project, and this is my first foray into a number of technologies, including Qt. While I'm on a Mac, one of my implementations will, hopefully, be on Linux.

    I'd like to create a wallet, and then create a faucet to drip out of that wallet.

    Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I can start my work with https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin.git, and develop in Qt, yes?

    From documents in bitcoin/doc, it seems I can build for OpenBSD, OSX, Unix, and Windows, but is all of that possible within the Qt dev environment?

    Lastly, will this be enough to tie together with a Linux-based wallet? I see projects using RPC to communicate between the two services.

    I understand these are high-level and vague questions, but after a couple days of drinking from a firehose, I'm just trying to get some clarity on next steps.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi
    You can use any c++ lib with Qt.
    That bitcoin thing seems to be normal c++ so you can most likely just use it.

    • seems I can build for OpenBSD, OSX, Unix, and Windows, but is all of that possible within the Qt dev environment?
      Only if you setup cross compiling to the various platforms.
      Its easier to use virtual machines and build for the platform inside them.

    The rest of the question is sadly outside of my knowledge.



  • @mrjj, many thanks!
