A few days ago on the Qt blog, Qt Company unveiled via a blog post the launch of Qt Digital Advertising 1.0 which is a new advertising platform that allows developers to easily integrate advertising campaigns in cross-platform applications based on Qt.
It is emphasized that the new solution, which will significantly streamline and improve revenue-generating opportunities for mobile, desktop and embedded applications and devices.
“Many of you have raised the following question: when will Qt provide a complete framework to monetize my cross-platform application based on Qt, by implementing an advertising campaign directly in my user interface? Qt said. “Now the entire Qt community and users at large can start implementing and managing ad campaigns targeting cross-platform use cases in no time. »
For those who are still unaware of Qt, you should know that this is a framework that runs on the KDE desktop, it is an object-oriented API developed in C++, jointly by The Qt Company and the Qt Project.
As such, it offers components for a graphical interface, data access, network connections, thread management, XML parsing, etc. The library developed by the Qt company is used by large companies and about a million developers worldwide. Qt enables unique code for operating systems, desktop applications, embedded vehicle systems, and connected objects.
About Qt Digital Advertising
In the blog post it is mentioned that Qt Digital Advertising can be easily configured in Qt Design Studio to insert ads while designing the user interface. Which is also provided in the Qt Creator IDE.
With this new solution it is intended that Qt developers could now convert their built-in applications and devices and mobile in “basically monetization” options.
And it is that the main task of Qt Digital Advertising is to help monetize any screen created with Qt, this is a plug-and-play plugin that is installed from the Qt maintenance tool instance, connects the application to a platform of dedicated supply (SSP). Thanks to this tool it is possible to manage and launch monetization campaigns in a Qt-based application.
“Our goal is to fill an existing gap in the Qt framework for developers using Qt for desktop and mobile applications. “We want to allow easy integration of advertising,” says Qt Company. Our offering aims to disrupt the IoT industry, enabling new business models and business cases that were not possible before. We allow Qt users to embed advertising as a native component in complex user interfaces. »
“During the rest of 2022, we will focus on new tools to make your development flow easier and faster. Simultaneously, we will be adding new partners and technologies to help our users and developers generate revenue in the most efficient way possible. This is a new product for Qt and we would appreciate feedback as soon as possible.”
for those who are interested in being able to add the plugin in Qt Design Studiothey just need to add the module to the component library and drag and drop the ad slot.
It can be an in-app or mobile ad (desktop is built into mobile). It is possible to expand or reduce the size of the ad space directly in Design Studio, you just have to place the ad space where you want, on the screen, in different formats, be it a video or a static banner ad.
Too it is possible to modify the properties of additional parameters that need to be added to the ad environment, such as the location ID of the connection to the server hosting the ad. Finally, it is possible to switch from the form editor to the text editor to see the QML code plane on the parameters of the ad space that has been configured. This code can also be added to Qt Creator and run from there.
