StarMenu by lildeimos is a custom Qt Quick component for creating an icon based popup menu. The component offers a number of layout options, ranging from the “star” layout from which it gets its name (ie circular or oval layout around a specified point) through to layout of icons in an arbitrary grid or in a line defined by start point, radius and item separation.
The component is delivered as a QML plugin which you can use very easily by simple import. Source code is provided, along with documentation which is hosted on the main wiki and within the project wiki.
There is an excellent demo/test app which allows you to easily try out and see all the options provided by the component (you can download this from the summary page.).
The video above shows the demo app running on Windows – the same demo runs on other platforms too. In fact StarMenu is truly cross platform, and has been tested on MeeGo Harmattan (N9), Symbian, linux, Windows, Android (with necessitas).
StarMenu is a previous winner of Featured Project of the Week (02/04/2012). Since it was last featured the project has continued to evolve and been made easier to use – it now has improved documentation and a more fully featured demo app. At lower level, there have also been numerous minor bug fixes and enhancements.
