Arduino plans on Qt - more details?

 

Hi, Arduino has introduced new hardware and future plans at the Maker Faire of New York. Just at the end of the Engadget article [engadget.com] it is said:

Massimo was already talking up the next-gen system though, that would leverage Nokia’s QT framework and a plugin system to expand its capabilities and offer developers a more professional solution for building Arduino-based products.

The Arduino project & community are utterly interesting and a connection with the Qt project & community would be utterly cool. If you know more please share in this thread.

Somebody should really get in touch with them and checkout what they’re up to.

I hope that they’ll extend QtCreator instead of creating their own IDE (again).

I tried finding any info about it but w/o success.

Here’s a blog post I wrote today about how you can use QtCreator for Arduino development:

Using QtCreator for Arduino development [blog.jayway.com]

It shouldn’t be to hard to actually integrate this into QtCreator as a plug-in, if you know how and have the time :)

First contact established. Looking good! Of course it’s up to Arduino to explain more about their plans.

Can you ask them to write something about it on QtDevNet?

I can… and anybody else can too. ;) I basically went after them through their blog and Twitter (oh, and G+) and they answered a few hours later. Nice people, of course.

fwiw I also sent them the link to your blog post.

This forum sounds interesting. I have done my considerations about and I am following a personal development line about this kind of intergration. Maybe a good idea I put these results in a new wiki page area?
