Simple QML vs EFL comparison

Filed under
Software

I found this blog post about complete minesweeper clone - elemines - based on Enlightenment Foundation Libraries. As EFL are designed to efficiently work even on PDAs, I came up with an idea to implement similar clone in plain QML/Javascript (QmlMiner) and perform simple comparative analysis. I wondered how the QML version would compare with the EFL one.

Following areas were analyzed:

1. Developer experience
2. Source code size and used languages
3. Memory consumption
4. Startup time

The comparison was concluded with a limited performance check.

You can look at it from many angles. Just note that I was comparing virtual-machine-based runtime (Qt4/QML - QtQuick 1.1, JavaScript) with EFL app that is coded in C and compiled into a native binary to see how much advantage the low-level C programming has over more modern technology such as QML.

  • Fedora Pune meetup April 2016
    I actually never even announced the April meetup, but we had in total 13 people showing up for the meet. We moved the meet to my office from our usual space as I wanted to use the white board. At beginning I showed some example code about how to write unittests, and how are we using Python3 unittests in our Fedora Cloud/Atomic images automatically. Anwesha arranged some soft drinks, and snacks for everyone.
