    It is fantastic that we might be able to use QtCreator for other languages.

        Now that there is an XAML standard. Perhaps it would be cool if Qt could consume XAML.
        Or if there were any converter that could convert between XAML and QML.

          Open a suggestion jira tickets on topic What are the use cases, what exists in XAML that you wouldn't want to rewrite in native QML?

            Maybe a developer who learning Qt but already knows XAML and don't want to learn QML.
            Maybe a developer who is porting an application and already have an XAML file.

            XAML is used by WPF, WinUI, Avalonia, and Xamarin on Android and iOS, so it would be cool if XAML could be used with GTK+ and Qt too.
            Would be cool with one standard UI language for all widget toolkits and platforms.

              As someone who's written XAML before (just a tiny bit) I really can't recommend it. That was years ago, so maybe it's improved, but I was not a fan.

                a) That repo does not appear to contain any actual standard, just discussion about creating one.
                b) Let's hope not. QML is vastly preferable to read and write (and if you're using a GUI, it's not that important what it reads/writes like).

                  I'd wait for 5.12.1. There are still a few bugs that are fairly serious for some use cases in 5.12.0. Note: this is expected with Qt's policy of regular releases, 5.12.1 is expected in January IIRC.
