Qt is becoming more and more feature rich, but applications aren't getting any smaller. I wish there was easier ways of configuring and building Qt with shared libraries containing only the necessary functionality. Maybe more modularity is the answer.
I want to comply with the LGPL license, but I wish the libraries were smaller. I've tried building Qt from source, without success on GNU/Linux. I've also tried Sciter, which is a single library for Microsoft Windows, Apple macOS and GNU/Linux. This and an executable using the library at runtime come in at around ~11MB. On other systems where Qt libraries are not installed system wide, such as Microsoft Windows, it can be several times bigger in total. I could use smaller libraries like Sciter, but I miss out on the versatility of Qt's API's, and it's implementations for all sorts of devices and operating systems. Can we make it easier to reduce application installation sizes? _______________________________________________ Interest mailing list Interest@qt-project.org https://lists.qt-project.org/listinfo/interest
