~**Qt** is an open source [[ApplicationFramework application framework]] developed the Qt Project, involving individuals and companies - notably Nokia. Many Qt applications are written in [[CPlusPlus C++]], although bindings to other languages are available. [[KDE]] desktop environment is based on [[Qt]].

~Qt is not standard on Puppy. However, much work has been done to implement the framework. Generally speaking to run a Qt application on Puppy requires the installation of a [[software software package]]. Similarly, to compile or develop a Qt app, a package is required (usually with 'dev' in its name). See Software Packages below, or [[Qt Qt installation]].

==Polar Pup==
~[[Polarpup]] comes with ""Qt4"" as standard and some Qt apps such as [[Clementine]] and its [[devx]] has the development files. This makes using Qt applications very easy.

==Qt Puppy==
~[[QtPuppy]] is version of Puppy that uses ""Qt4"" as the default framework, currently under development by [[scsijon]]. The first step is to get Mageia 2 based Puppy up and running, then later a version using Mageia 3. These will then be branched into ""QtPuppy"". To help test please see, [[ this forum page]].

==Qt version 5==
~""Qt5"" will be a 'different' beastie to ""Qt3/Qt4"". It will be using cloud applications as the base rather than ""Qt4's"" workstation/server focus.
