Qt for Tizen is a common name for two products:
- Qt framework for Tizen: Added build tools for Tizen emulator (with Tizen emulator device Qt mkspecs). The build tools have been prepared with Linux workstations in mind and have been tested with Tizen 2.1 beta. While QWidget APIs are fully supported, Qt Quick graphical stack is recommended as it is optimized for touch interfaces of smartphones and provides Tizen's look and feel out of the box.
- Qt Tizen Integration: Basic Qt Quick Controls with Tizen Style: Button, Progress, Slider, CheckBox, TabBar. Currently handled is white theme and 720x1280 resolution, however Qt Quick Controls for Tizen are already technically prepared for multiple themes and resolutions.
Touch example app from Qt examples works with the Tizen controls:
- Qt framework for Tizen: qt-tizen-1.0-alpha1.tar.gz, 14KiB.
It only contains build tools, the Qt source code is a standard 5.1 release. See the desktop/README document for desktop build, and emulator/README for emulator build.
- Qt Tizen Integration: qt-tizen-integration-1.0-alpha1.tar.gz, 3.8MiB. See the README document for instructions.
- md5 sums for the above files
Known IssuesSee this wiki page.
Further PlansAt later stage deeper integration between Qt and Tizen specifics or services is planned, including support for real smartphones, real and emulated phone sensors, contacts, WebKit and more. Development on Mac OS X and Windows would be supported too. Our roadmap is developed in the open.
AboutQt for Tizen is an initiative by software developers and for software developers, aimed at bringing the full Qt Creator-based developer experience to Tizen application development. Potential reuse of prior Qt, C++ and QML knowledge gained by several hundreds of thousands of software engineers is especially beneficial. The project is purely community-driven and free software/open-source friendly so anyone can join. Detailed introduction to the initiative is available on the Qt Project wiki.
