English

Qt Creator is a cross-platform and open source graphical Integrated Development Environment (IDE) application that provides Qt developers with everything they need to create usable and attractive graphical user interfaces.

Development began in 2007 under a different name, which then later again changed its name, to finally be named Qt Creator in March the 1st, 2009.

It supports both Qt4 and Qt5 toolkits.

On Linux, it is distributed as native installers for the 64- and 32-bit hardware platforms, as well as a source archives that can be configured, compiled and installed on any Linux distribution.

The editor's features include syntax highlighting and autocompletion. Qt Creator uses the C++ compiler from the GNU Compiler Collection on Linux and FreeBSD. On Windows it can use MinGW or MSVC with the default install and can also use Microsoft Console Debugger when compiled from source code. Clang is also supported.

Licenses: LGPL / Commercial

Qt for Application Development is also available under GPL and LGPLv3 open source licenses. Qt tools and some libraries are only available under GPL.

Qt for Application Development is dual-licensed under commercial and open source licenses.
