During a project I had to delve into the QtCreator code to get a deeper understanding on how to write plugins. It was quite a hard work, since the documentation within the QtCreator code is not the best. My best resource was an ancient pdf, which described the plugin development for QtCreator 1. Most of the code did not even compile for QtCreator 2 anymore.
Now I would hate to see my efforts to learn all this go to waste. What I could easily do is to write a new pdf for QtCreator 2. But this would also age and be worthless in a few months.
So my idea is to create this tutorial on SO. Here is an example question: How do I add my own options page to the QtCreator
If this is accepted in general, I would add further questions:
- How do I add a navigation panel to the QtCreator
- How do I add an editor to the QtCreator
- How do I add....
Then I'd like to cross link between the questions. The advantage is, that others could improve the questions and further comments/answers could be added to keep it up-to-date with changing QtCreator versions.
Does anyone see a problem with the above question/answer? My plan? Comments?
