I can finally announce that the Stellar Qt/C++ SDK port is done.
I renamed it from StellarQore to StellarQtSDK to make sure that there is no confusion with Stellar Core. I also moved it to github
It has all the functionality and tests as the official Java SDK and it is proven to work in the wallet I presented for the last Challenge.
I finally licenced it as MPL licence. It is almost the MIT licence but improvements to the source code must be published. So feel free to build anything with it.
On the other hand, Qt is licenced as GPL/LGPL, even if a company is behind it, it is also the KDE community backing it.
For people wondering why I chose Qt: first because Qt is my preferred framework to work with. I love the flexibility and the power it has. It is really multiplatform, it allows you to build energy optimized applications with attractive interfaces.
This SDK opens the door to Stellar to C++ developers who don´t like to run code inside a browser engine.
On the other hand, Qt is aiming nowdays to the Internet of Things. With the next version Qt 5.10, two new modules will be included (MQTT and KNX) allowing Machine to Machine comunications.
Mix this with Stellar and start to think what new things we can build out of it. Don't stop here!
It is also easy to build games and apps using QML
I can offer to support any project that uses this SDK, even if you want to join the competition, don't doubt to contact me.
