[SOLVED] Where is Qt designer app on Mac + Anaconda?


I am trying to find Qt designer app on Mac. I installed anaconda package and conda reports that qt, sip, and pyqt are installed. Still I couldn’t find the designer app in any of the folders. My Python app that uses pyqt works perfectly. I’m very new to macs and probably missing something very simple.

I did search folder tree for anything named designer. I found QtDesigner.so (supposed to be executable?) at
/Users/XXXX/anaconda/pkgs/pyqt-4.10.4-py27_0/lib/python2.7/site-packages/PyQt4 but it won’t even run saying "cannot execute binary file"
anaconda/bin doesn’t have it.

There’s a folder anaconda/include/QtDesigner but noting I can run
/anaconda/pkgs/qt-4.8.5-3/bin – no designer. I’m totally confused now.


I expect it’s Qt Creator that you should be looking for. Note here: –

the integration of Qt Designer under Qt Creator is first mentioned at least as early as Qt 4.7 (ca. late 2011)

Qt Creator includes a code editor and integrates Qt Designer for designing and building graphical user interfaces (GUIs) from Qt widgets.

If it’s not in your distribution, you can download it separately here.
