Qt Creator

Qt Creator is a cross-platform IDE (integrated development environment) tailored to the needs of Qt developers.
It is part of the Qt Project [qt-project.org] .

Advanced code editor

Qt Creator focuses on providing features that help new Qt users get up and running faster,
and also boost the productivity of experienced Qt developers.

  • Code editor with C++, QML and ECMAscript support
  • Rapid code navigation tools
  • Syntax highlighting and code completion
  • Static code checking and style hints as you type
  • Support for source code refactoring
  • Context sensitive help
  • Code folding
  • Parenthesis matching and parenthesis selection modes

Visual debugger

The visual debugger for C++ is aware of the structure of many Qt classes, thus increasing its ability to display Qt’s data clearly.
In addition, Qt Creator displays the raw information from GDB in a clear and concise manner.

  • Interrupt program execution.
  • Step through the program line-by-line or instruction-by-instruction.
  • Set breakpoints.
  • Examine call stack contents, watchers, and local and global variables.

GUI designers

Integrated GUI layout and forms builder for C++ projects, which allows you to rapidly design and build widgets and dialogs using on-screen forms using the same widgets that will be used in your application. Forms are fully-functional, and they can be previewed immediately to ensure that they will look and feel exactly as you intended.

Installing Qt Creator

If you are interested in using Qt Creator for development, check our download page [qt-project.org] or look for Vendor Packages.

If you want to check out the latest features, fetch the latest source snapshots for the master [qt.gitorious.org] or one of the other branches. Alternatively, we provide nightly updated binary snapshot builds [download.qt-project.org].

If you want to participate in the development of Qt Creator, see the section on contributing to Qt Creator below.

Contributing to Qt Creator

We mostly follow the process and guidelines used for Qt itself that you can find in the Qt Contribution Guidelines. Please find detailed information about the process there. There is also a work-in-progress draft on Extending Qt Creator [doc.qt.digia.com]. Apart from contributing code, you can also help us by testing Qt Creator on the platform of your choice, see Qt Creator Quality Assurance. If you have questions, don’t hesitate to contact us e.g. at the #qt-creator [irc.freenode.org] IRC channel on Freenode or on our mailing list [lists.qt-project.org]. (For a full list of IRC channels see OnlineCommunities.)

See the QtCreator project on gitorious [qt.gitorious.org] for cloning the git repository.

Questions and Feedback

If you have any problems, please look through our Frequently Asked Questions first. If your problems persist, scan the Qt Creator mailing list [lists.qt-project.org] archive (the old list is here [lists.qt-project.org]). If that doesn’t help, have a look at our Bug Tracker [bugreports.qt-project.org] to check if it is a known problem, or to create a bug report. Finally, you can ask on the Qt Creator mailing list (you need to subscribe first). You can also try to ask questions at the #qt-creator [irc.freenode.org] IRC channel on Freenode where you will find both Qt Creator developers and Qt Creator users.
