That’s pretty much about it.
I would also suggest to create the Qt application in C++ using functions from
libsailfishapp ( to speed up a bit
the application launch but it is not mandatory.

The approach I’m experimenting right now is a mix of “my_app” and
“M-modules/quick” examples from EQL5 and it seems to be a viable one.

I stumbled upon a crash at launch (floating point exception) when trying to run
something ecl/eql related in the emulator but it is working fine on the device.

I still need to find a way to efficiently use slime with this setup.

I might put a template on a public repository to help quickstart application
development when I’m satisfied with my environment.
