Me: Can you write in Qt5 or QML for the Sailfish mobile operating system?
ChatGPT: Yes, it is possible to write applications for the Sailfish mobile operating system using Qt5 and QML. Sailfish OS is based on the Qt framework, and the user interface of the operating system is built using QML. Developers can use the Qt Creator IDE and the Sailfish SDK to develop, test, and deploy applications for Sailfish OS.
Me: Can you write code for it?
ChatGPT: Yes, I can write code for Sailfish OS using Qt5 and QML.
Here is an example of a simple “Hello World” application written in QML:
import QtQuick 2.0
text: “Hello World!”
This code creates a rectangle with the dimensions 200x200 pixels and a text element that says “Hello World!” and centers it in the rectangle.
Here is an example of a simple “Hello World” application written in C++ and Qt5:
int main(int argc, char *argv)
QGuiApplication app(argc, argv);
QQmlApplicationEngine engine; engine.load(QUrl(QStringLiteral("qrc:/main.qml"))); return app.exec();
This code sets up a QGuiApplication and a QQmlApplicationEngine, which is used to load a QML file. The QML file “main.qml” should contain the previous QML example.
Please note that this is just a simple example, and to create a functional Sailfish application more code and resources would be needed and also the examples above are not tested on Sailfish OS.
When you understand its limitations, ChatGPT is really impressive for some things. But its most impressive function is coding and documentation. We know for example that ChatGPT has written malware…
I barely understand C++ and have yet to try coding for Sailfish myself. It occurs to me that ChatGPT might be able to fix up old outdated apps.
