Toradex for qt open source

Hi, I’m completely new in this world of toradex and qt (so apologize for my ignorance), as I cannot afford a qt commercial license, I’m wondering how reliable is to choose the open source version and work with embedded systems with toradex boards to accomplish a decent GUI? is there some docs I can take as a reference?.

Thanks in advance.

Dear @ununezta

Basically the open source and commercial versions are from the same code base. Therefore, there isn’t a difference in performance between the two versions. However, the open source version is licensed under LGPL3. Maybe check this video regarding differences and what this means:

You can follow this article to compile boot2qt from scratch:

Please set QT_EDITION = “opensource” in conf/local.conf to force using the open source version.
