Posted in Labs, Qt, Qt Script

We’re actively researching Google’s V8 JavaScript engine for use in Qt. For legal reasons, we had to take our work underground where it doesn’t belong.

When we first started playing with the idea of a Qt Labs site, there were no resources available on the web team to conceptualize and implement it.

I’ve been playing with javascript lately, and here’s the result: QWebClient, a thin client for Qt applications.
