What's the kind of widgets Qt is supposed to cover?



  • Recently I started a personal project which is a DE for Linux. It's just something to play with but now the main issue I'm facing is about building a topbar which is supposed to be a bar with gradient background with a global menu on top of the screen, I've researched many solutions for Linux and I'd like to know if QWidget or other Qt solution would be a good fit for it. Or if would worth better if I created a custom UI toolkit? Please give me your personal opinion

    Best regards

    Such top bar is doable with both QtWidgets and QtQuick. It will probably be easier to do in QtQuick.
