I am a hobbyist maker that tinkers with arduinos and whatnot and have a little bit of background in coding, but not much at all. To complement some of my projects I have successfully built an app that communicates with some of my hardware projects.
However, the main reason I chose to ‘learn’ openframeworks in the first place was so I would have some cross-platform compatibility. As this is not my ‘main job’ and time is limited I cannot support 2 different code-projects, but some of my customers run Windows whilst others run osx.
On osx I have no issues with the 4.6.1 version of qtcreator so far, but on Windows I am struggling to get certain things done. Mostly because QT 5.9 already had end of life in May 2020, and the documentation is definitely not 4.6.1 compatible.
It also seems that the QT creator support is still experimental on OF, for a version (4.6.1) that is no longer supported by QT themselves. So now. only after having sunk hours and days into my projects have I realized that most people here are using xcode (osx) or visual studio (Windows), did I make the wrong choice to start using QT creator in the first place?
