testQtGesture: an easy-to-change testbed for gestures in Qt apps

This is an announcement of a project I shared on github: testQtGesture

Its an easy to change program for testing gestures on Qt, which is cross platform.  It is a reduced app harnessed to log many events related to gestures.

Gestural GUI’s are horribly complex to implement.  Some of the many factors:

  • platform OS
  • devices and device drivers
  • your app’s widget tree
  • your app’s interpretation for gestures

Its much simpler if you stick to one platform, maintained and documented by one company e.g. iOS.  But Qt is cross-platform, including desktops, iOS, and Android.  Qt gestures are not well documented.  I use testQtGesture to explore gestures across platforms.
