Qt binding for Go (support for Windows / macOS / Linux / Android)


Qt is a free and open-source widget toolkit for creating graphical user interfaces as well as cross-platform applications that run on various software and hardware platforms with little or no change in the underlying codebase.

Go, also known as Golang, is a programming language designed at Google.

therecipe/qt allows you to write Qt applications entirely in Go, JavaScript/TypeScript, Dart/Flutter, Haxe and Swift

Beside the language bindings provided, therecipe/qt also greatly simplifies the deployment of Qt applications to various software and hardware platforms.

At the time of writing, almost all Qt functions and classes are accessible, and you should be able to find everything you need to build fully featured Qt applications.

JavaScript Demo | source


The following instructions assume that you already installed Go and Git

(Experimental) cgo-less version (try this first, if you are new and want to test the binding)


go get -ldflags="-w" && for /f %v in ('go env GOPATH') do %v\bin\widgets.exe


go get -ldflags="-w" && $(go env GOPATH)/bin/widgets

Default version

Windows (more info)

set GO111MODULE=off
go get -v && for /f %v in ('go env GOPATH') do %v\bin\qtsetup test && %v\bin\qtsetup -test=false

macOS (more info)

export GO111MODULE=off; xcode-select --install; go get -v && $(go env GOPATH)/bin/qtsetup test && $(go env GOPATH)/bin/qtsetup -test=false

Linux (more info)

export GO111MODULE=off; go get -v && $(go env GOPATH)/bin/qtsetup test && $(go env GOPATH)/bin/qtsetup -test=false

Qt 6 Improves QML, Adopts C++17, and More

Qt 6 is a new major release of Qt, the free and open-source, cross-platform toolkit for creating GUI apps that powers Linux’s KDE desktop environment. While striving to keep full source compatibility, Qt 6 brings many changes, including improved QML, a new graphic architecture, C++17 support, improved tooling, and more.

Qt 6 keeps its adherence to the usual Qt tenets, including cross-platform support, scalability across multiple form factors, maintainability and compatibility with previous versions.

OpenCV with GStreamer and QT on Windows

In this article, a step by step guide is provided for building OpenCV from source with GStreamer, QT , OpenCV contrib and CUDA packages. At the end of the tutorial, we will develop a GStreamer pipeline using OpenCV to stream webcam to localhost, receive the data and show the stream using GStreamer-CLI. In the next section, we will download the source files and install the required tools for building OpenCV with GStreamer.
