Posted in Declarative UI, Labs, Qt Quick

We here in Qt development are pretty excited about the Qt 4.7.0 release. In particular, some of us have been focusing our enthusiasm on the Qt Quick framework. 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. […]

Labs reborn!

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. So, since the developers wanted a Qt Labs site, we had to do it ourselves. The whole site was put together using various components (Mediawiki, WordPress and BBpress), […]

Since there is currently no official Spotify client that can run on Embedded Linux (wine doesn’t run on arm architectures), and since I really wanted to have access to my Spotify account from my N900, I decided to give the open source Spotify client library called “despotify” a run. This is a library of C […]

Qt in the Cloud with QWebClient

Posted in Internet, Labs, Qt

I’ve been playing with javascript lately, and here’s the result: QWebClient, a thin client for Qt applications. This is a pure Javascript implementation which runs in any modern browser (no plugins required). QWebClient works by starting an http server in the application process, which the browser then connects to. The project currently has research quality […]

Progress on the JavaScriptCore-based Back-end for QtScript

Published Tuesday July 14th, 2009 | 3 Comments on Progress on the JavaScriptCore-based Back-end for QtScript
Posted in Labs, Qt, Qt Script

As described in a previous blog entry, the day-to-day work on the JSC-based back-end for QtScript mainly revolves around getting lots of tiny (TINY!) tests to pass, ensuring that the observed behavior of the C++ API and JS runtime is still compatible. Well, things are starting to add up: The Qt bindings produced by the […]

Multi-touch on Mac

Posted in Labs, Qt

Not long after Brad blogged about multi-touch in May, I got my hands on a brand new MacBook Pro under the excuse of implementing multi-touch support for Qt on Mac. This machine has a big and sexy trackpad (excuse my sexual orientation) that goes beyond normal mouse control to also include multi-touch- and gesture support. […]

Using JavaScriptCore as the QtScript Back-end

Published Tuesday June 16th, 2009 | 13 Comments on Using JavaScriptCore as the QtScript Back-end
Posted in Labs, Qt, WebKit

As Ariya mentioned in one of his previous posts, we’ve been doing some work on using JavaScriptCore (JSC) as the QtScript back-end. The whole idea is that you’ll get the same QtScript API, but with JSC performance. There’s also the prospect of being able to use the QtScript API together with QtWebKit, giving a smooth […]

Remote QtScript Debugging Rises from its Cold Grave

Published Tuesday June 16th, 2009 | 2 Comments on Remote QtScript Debugging Rises from its Cold Grave
Posted in Labs, Qt, Qt Script, Qt Script Debug

Remember the times when the QtScript debugger was nothing but a maverick project on Trolltech Labs, and you could run the debugger as a stand-alone application? When the debugger was finally integrated into Qt for the 4.5 release, that feature had mysteriously disappeared. Well, today I’m happy to tell you it’s been resurrected — not […]
