Cutelyst

Cutelyst is a web framework built on top of Qt, using the simple and elegant approach of Catalyst framework as found in Perl. You can use it to write a REST backend to your Qt application among other things.

Ever wished you could avoid a Qt application's freezing while it's querying a database, without the complexity of threads? This video shows how to keep an application responsive with the Asynchronous SQL library. Watch the author of the library, Daniel Nicoletti, show you how it works.
