QT overview

Qt[1][2][3] is a cross-platform application framework that is used to develop graphical user interfaces (GUIs) and multiplatform applications.

meta-qt5[4] is a Yocto compatible meta layer that provides recipes for Qt modules.

The OpenSTLinux distribution is ready to link with this meta layer.

The OpenSTLinux distribution offers the possibility to use an example of an image based on the QT framework (st-example-image-qt and, for ecosystem release ≥ v2.1.0 More info.png , st-example-image-qtwayland) as a demonstrator, not for developing products. For Qt-based products, the list of STMicroelectronics partners can be found on STMicroelectronics web site.
