Mapbox GL Native now officially supports Qt, an open-source cross-platform application framework designed to write once, deploy everywhere. Qt is widely used in many industries, including mobile, automotive, avionics and much more due to its fast development cycle, extensive documentation and big community.

Mapbox Qt QML example

We are committed to Qt and Mapbox GL Native now welcomes it as a first-class platform. Mapbox Qt SDK provides QMapboxGL and QQuickMapboxGL.

QMapboxGL and QQuickMapboxGL solve different problems. The former is a low-level implementation that can be used on previous versions of Qt and is easily integrated into pure C++ environments. The latter takes advantage of Qt Quick’s modern user interface technology, and is the perfect tool for adding navigation maps on embedded platforms.

Grab our open source code on GitHub and join us at QtCon this September in Berlin.
