An IDE that helps developers create applications for desktop and mobile device platforms, while offering support for a source code editor and debugging options
Qt Creator is a cross-platform utility that works through an integrated development environment (IDE) for helping developers create applications for desktop and mobile device platforms.
Although it comes packed with a multitude of dedicated parameters, it sports a clean and straightforward interface that gives users the possibility to set up a new project by using the step-by-step approach, which comes in handy especially for rookies as they are offered assistance throughout the entire process.
Qt Creator features several tools designed to help you customize the layout of the programs that you are creating and a built-in text editor that offers support for C++ and QML programming languages, syntax highlighting, as well as code completion and code syntax checking options.
When it comes to configuring the settings of a new project, you can select the type of the utility that you want to create (Qt Quick or HTML5 or Qt widgets), set the programming language, use a version control system, as well as design separate versions of the project files.
Developing QT Quick applications and widget-based utilities can be done with two integrated visual editors (Qt Quick Designer and Qt Designer).
Qt Creator comes packed with several tools for helping you write and edit code easier, as you can use the incremental and advanced search function, perform code refactoring operations in order to find and rename symbols, as well as configure the source code editor in terms of font, color, and indentation.
Plus, the program comprises the Valgrind code analysis tool that enables users to identify possible errors and memory leaks, various build systems (qmake and CMake), command-line operations, keyboard shortcuts, and external tools.
All in all, Qt Creator proves to be a reliable utility and one of the most powerful IDE for application developers. It provides a complete suite of tools and a straightforward layout that meet the requirements of rookies and professionals alike.
