This past week many people asked me how to make a sailfish app.
Well we cant blame them, after the grand opening of Jolla Harbour and Jolla Store even I felt how unlucky I am that i still haven’t made any sailfish app!
Plus, Everybody wants to be a part of the future!
The first thing we need to understand is simply the QT Creator!
On this page, The welcome tab is something everyone should explore! There are example apps, tutorials etc.
To get started, go to Develop tab and create a new project.
Your whole project is basically your app!
Once the project has been created, it is simply a complier ready for you to write code and be awesome!
People who are familiar with qt, programming and stuff can simply understand what they need to do after this.
But if you don’t have that kind of background, I highly recommend you to see this video i came across:

Yes a part of me dies every time this guy pronounces it silicia as well. 😉
If you guys are beginners or noobs, don’t worry! SQlite isn’t that hard and there are many other easy ways of creating a database as well!
Well, if you are here it means now you are most probably high! And ready to make an app…..
But we need to know the Sailfish Silica first!
What is it? Simply think of it as ready-made masks for your app.
Jolla was kind of enough to make many of them and we should use their full advantage!
Head on to the Reference Guide for Sailfish Silica
Feel free to ask me as many questions as you wish?
