Supported Versions When talking about version support on macOS, it's important to distinguish between the build environment; the platform you're building on or with, and the target platforms.

Qt is a powerful and comprehensive application development framework that can be used to create cross platform applications, for both desktop and mobile devices. The framework also integrates user friendly and efficient tools designed to streamline the entire process. Development framework for designing.

Most Linux distributions do not install all of these by default, but setting up a development environment is still straightforward.

Use the following commands to install the basic requirements for building Qt applications:

Debian/Ubuntu (apt-get)

Fedora/RHEL/CentOS (yum)

openSUSE (zypper)
