Cutelyst 0.2.0 Released: A Web Framework Powered By Qt 5
Phoronix: Cutelyst 0.2.0 Released: A Web Framework Powered By Qt 5
Nearly a half-year after the original release of Cutelyst, the second version is now available of this web framework powered by Qt5...
Can't even find screenshots, let alone a demo website. Is this really a web framework?
After reading this article i have no idea what cutelyst does and what is it for.
Well, then it's not for you...

And I looked at the example and seems that the way of deploying your server is very similar to Express on NodeJS...
Yay for hosting on Gitorious (not sarcasm).
Well okay. And I'm familiar/code with Qt5 so that's a plus. But is there a compelling reason to use Cutelyst rather than say the (somewhat) more mature Wt webtoolkit?

But apart from the web site, what of complex and/or compute intensive web applications that might (conceivably) be better written in C++? And if such are to be server-side (where else?), does one needs must host-one's-own server in order to get the library support, or will a commercial hoster e.g. Wordpress or Bluehost install these, or can you place the libraries in your personal account directory hierarchy? I ask because my personal homepage is hosted by Bluehost, and although Bluehost is a popular Wordpress host, I currently write all my site's pages in php and upload. But there's one or two web applications I've thought about writing, where C++ would make most sense at least at the lowest level.Or is that what Java was invented for?
Complex web applications use virtual or dedicated servers and can have software they want. They can also compile at deploy or whatnot. On PHP shared hosting that's not possible. Writing an web application in C++ won't probably add much or anything when compared to nicely written application in a dynamic language like Python or even PHP. Specific performance gains would be usable only to Qt/C++ experts that know the platform, and C++ developers are rather more expensive than Python or PHP as the required knowledge level is higher. This is not the first C or C++ web framework, and none of them actually gain any momentum. This one may be used by Qt developers that do not know any existing web development platforms.

It's much more mature, better documented. And it works!
