    Does Qt have any QtInspector?

    This GtkInspector seems really lovely!
    I would love to get a chance to try it out.

        No. Qt Creator is the equivalent of Glade in GTK. It is useful for designing the graphical interface. It is not a graphical debugger. Afaik, there is no equivalent in Qt for the GTK inspector.

          No, you are thinking of Qt Designer. Qt Creator is a general-purpose IDE, including a coding interface, a GUI designer (Qt Designer), a graphical debugger, and a profiler. I am not sure the relative capabilities of GTK inspector and Qt Creator's debugger, though.

            Regardless of the capabalities, these are not really equivalents. GTK Inspector is part of every GTK installation. Not something you need or want a seperate IDE for.

              I guess that depends on whether you consider debugging to be something developers do or something that ordinary users do.

                False dichotomy. "Ordinary users" in Linux can and do report bugs. This is why Fedora has some minimal debugging metadata in all the packages for example. Also developmental debugging isn't not necessarily tied to an IDE. It should be available outside it for developers as well.

                  False dilemma. It is possible to report bugs without manually digging into the debugger that most users won't have the slightest clue how to use not to mention interpret.

                    Users don't have to manually interpret anything here. Tools like abrt in Fedora automate the process.
