    Default Seeking advise on the QtScript replacement

    AFAIK qtScript will be deprecated starting with 5.6. I am about to start large scripting part of the project I am working on. I'll appreciate an opinion on what should I use as replacement for QtScript. Lua? QtQuick? Py?

    Thanks.

    QtQuick is a UI module, you probably meant QML.

    QQmlEngine is a good candidate when you need the script to interact with the Qt applications, see
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7LsKoVrb8C8 for example.

    Thank you for the reply. I would like to know what are the benefits and issues with the solutions that are available - QmlEngine, PyQt, Lua, perhaps others? May be someone already did such an analysis?

    Thanks.

    QQmlEngine obviously has the advantage of being part of Qt andbeing primarily developed for use with Qt's object system.
    So it understands Qt types, signals/slots, etc.

    Python's advantage is that it has its own class library and tons of bindings to other libraries.
    Obviously that could be a disadvantage if the scripts should not have access to all of that.

    Lua is a very common scripting solution so there should be lots of examples on the Internet.
    Just never heard of a special adapter for Qt, so maybe there is none yet, or they are just not well know.
