I have come across the TreeFrog framework. While its license is BSD, it still uses qmake to compile as seen in the tutorial. So does TreeFrog's BSD license or Qt's LGPL license apply to the application you create using this framework?

    I haven't looked closely enough to give an answer, but it looks like TreeFrog is simply a framework that sits "on top of" Qt. You must comply with Qt's terms separately (whether you opt for a FLOSS license or buy a different license), and TreeFrog's permissive BSD terms will not interfere with whichever Qt license terms you choose to acquire. – apsillers Sep 13 '18 at 18:41
  • Thank you so much! treefrog is now outta the window. I could use straight Qt5 if Qt license applies. – J. Doe Sep 14 '18 at 16:10
