Is what sense is Qt "native"?



In the sense that the executable is the machine code, not the Javascript interpreter running through js files. In the sense that Electron is actually native code (Chromium) running HTML UI and QT running its own custom-drawn UI, both different from whatever platform-blessed UI toolkit is, no, QT is not "native"

Most Qt Apps are still using the widget layout in pure C++ ( from the stats of the Qt company itself ) and do not contains a single line of JS or interpreted language.

Then yes Qt is native and Electron is not.
