Overview

lqt is a Lua binding to the Qt framework. It is an automated binding generated from the Qt headers, and covers almost all classes and methods from supported Qt modules.

For more info, check the documentation, mailing list or contact the authors:

Building lqt

Pre-compiled Windows binaries of lqt compiled against Qt 4.7 compatible with Lua for Windows are available, on other systems you need:

You can get the latest source of lqt from https://github.com/mkottman/lqt . When you have the sources, create an out-of-source build directory (where the binaries will be built, I often use build or /dev/shm). Then, use CMake to generate the Makefile and run make as usual:

mkdir build; cd build
cmake ..
make -j4 # use parallel build with your number of cores/processors

The generated Lua binding libraries are created in the lib directory, you can copy them to your LUA_CPATH.

Usage

A quick example of "Hello World!" button with signal/slot handling:

require 'qtcore'
require 'qtgui'

app = QApplication.new(select('#',...) + 1, {'lua', ...})

btn = QPushButton.new("Hello World!")
btn:connect('2pressed()', function(self)
    print("I'm about to close...")
    self:close()
end)
btn:setWindowTitle("A great example!")
btn:resize(300,50)
btn:show()

app.exec()

For more examples, check out the test folder and the doc folder for documentation on detailed usage - memory management, signal/slot handling, virtual method overloading, etc. Also, have a look at the examples and feel free to add your own!
