Qt on android

 

I’m curios any plans from Nokia or qt guys to support the port to android? An official supported version (tier 1 or 2 support) of qt for android will draw more developers to qt. Necessitas suite is very good, don’t know how mobility stands but with a bit of polish that could be a great product. it seems that mono droid and mono for iphone have some success i’m guessing qt for android at least to have the same success.

Good question.I also looking forward the official Android binding in Qt. Any plan? Anyone know?

@Franzk Franzk: Does it do the same thing as Qt’s lighthouse, which make Qt running at Android, iPhone(Actually, we know the QML in iPhone) happen?

Lighthouse is a project designed to easily make ports to different platforms. The android Qt port is using exactly that.

I do wonder what you mean by ‘official’. Is that a Nokia supported port? I wouldn’t count on it. Besides, since Qt is going Open Governance, community efforts are probably going to be ‘official’ slightly easier.

@Franzk: No, i use the wrong word “official”, and sorry for that. I just wanna know, if the project is launched by the community, and if it’s the only one(maybe the better one) for Android porting. So i can focus on it, if i want to port the App to Andriod phones.

Because I have both 2.3.2 and 3.0 devices, the first thing I did with them was trying the Qt port.

2.3.2 crashes when downloading the library.

3.0 gives black screen and also crashes occasionally.

If I have time, I will look at the android-lighthouse project.
