Reflections on the reflection proposals

Reflections on the reflection proposals

by Jens Weller

From the article

A few weeks ago I wrote a short overview over the most interesting papers for the current C++ Committee meeting in Kona, Hawaii. The big surprise was that there were many papers on reflection, while there already is a very detailed proposal for reflection.

Refactoring the HTML Text Editor for QWebEngine

by Jens Weller

From the article:

In the last post, I described my experience with using MSVC as a compiler in combination with QtCreator. The reason I set this up was, that with Qt 5.7 QWebkit isn't anymore supported, and the HTML TextEditor based on tinymce3 is a central part of my application. Instead of QWebkit there is now QWebEngine, based on chromium, a very fine solution...

In my last C++ summary (for 2016) I wrote that the draft for C++17 is the most important thing that happened. I’ve put a list of features of the new standard, and today I’d like to expand the topic so we can learn some more details.
