Qt Creator

Qt Creator is an integrated development environment (IDE) for GNU / Linux, Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows.

Qt Creator has no native compiler, but uses external programs, such as the gcc compiler collection to generate the executable code. It uses the latest Qt libraries version 5.x.


Qt Creator is a C / Qt development environment that is designed especially for the development of platform-independent C programs and QML surfaces with the Qt library.

When using the Qt libraries the self-programmed projects on Linux, Mac OS X and Windows can run having to make the source code without modification.
