Qt Creator Qt Creator Here we will explain the Qt Creator development for Qt5 development. Qt Creator is a cross-platform integrated development environment (IDE) built for the maximum developer experience. Qt Creator runs on Windows, Linux, and macOS desktop operating systems and allows developers to create software across desktop, mobile, and embedded platforms. We will focus on Linux running on amd64 architecture. Qt Creator's advanced code editor lets you write software in C++, QML, JavaScript, Python, and other languages. It features code completion, syntax highlighting, refactoring and has built-in documentation at your fingertips. Qt Creator integrates with most popular version control systems, including Git, Subversion, Perforce, and Mercurial. Build for and run your software on desktop, mobile and embedded operating systems. The build settings allow you to easily switch between targets. Test and debug applications in conditions practically identical to those on your target device. We have to install Qt5 Creator, because the integrated Qt version on the arm64 device is 5.15.3. Qt6 is installable on a PC (amd64) but it would cause version mix-up problems.

Installing Qt Creator (v6.0.2)

Please type: $ sudo apt install install qtbase5-dev qt5-qmake qtcreator qtbase5-examples qtbase5-doc-html
