Kirigami 2.1 Open-Source Framework for Convergent Mobile and Desktop UIs Is Out

Kirigami 2.1 is here three and a half months after the launch of Kirigami 2.0 as the project’s most mature version to date. Prominent features include ItemViewHeader, a standardized title for ListViews, which can be customized with a background image that uses a parallax effect when scrolled and the header is adjusted accordingly. Multiple behaviors can be set for this component. Kirigami 2.1 also ships with ApplicationItem, a root element that can be used for QML applications that are a hybrid of QML and QWidgets, allowing the main view to be either QQuickWidget or QQuickView, as well as PageRow, a public element that can be used directly in any application, for any context.
