Development

Documentation of the Qt Quick Version (Under development)

This is a new version of GCompris based on the Qt Quick technology. Our users expect us to deliver a version that runs on Desktop and on Tablets. Sadly with the Gtk+ version these was no easy way to achieve this. The decision has been taken to rewrite completely GCompris on a new framework. This is a departure from the Gtk+ development framework that was based on the C and the Python language. Now the development will be done with a mix of QML, JavaScript and C++.

The rewrite will not happen overnight and we need your help. If you are interesting in discovering the Qt Quick technology while doing something useful, you can do the port of a GCompris activity.
