Projects / coastal-qt


coastal-qt is a small collection of Qt 4/5 desktop applications built around a small Qt extension library. The library mostly focuses on missing features and services like OSD desktop notifications (with DBUS bindings) and offers some convenience classes for Qt. The current applications include a GUI man page viewer, a search tool, and a desktop user notification service daemon with multicast chat.
