We have already been writing shiny Qt Quick applications for a while now. Thanks to the people working on Qt Quick Desktop Components, Qt Quick is no longer interesting only on mobile platforms.

Gestures are a natural fit for the easy UI development the QML language enables. Currently however, there isn’t any gesture functionality exposed in the core declarative library. […]

Posted in Labs, News

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.
