Qt Iconic Woes

Recently I was working on a new desktop app for my new favorite game Overwatch. I got to the stage where I decided to add application icons to it.

After going through the trouble of creating the icon and adding it into the project, I compiled and had the new icon working on Windows pretty quick. Next, I moved to my Macbook and tested the new icon there as well but for the love of god the new icon would not show! Even after a new qmake, clean and rebuild…

Turns out I had to completely remove the app package itself then do another rebuild and voila! it’s there!

Timmmm from stackoverflow also had the same issue and discovered the same solution a few years ago.

UUIDer: An UUID generator for Windows & Mac

I’ve released a simple UUID generator app before Christmas. It’s a simple GUI application written in Qt which runs on Windows and newer versions of MacOS. I know there are a gillion of these generators on the internet but most of them do not provide option for choosing the UUID version, name space and data seed. People like me also prefer a standalone application.

The builds are all portable, so there’s no installation involved. Source is available over at GitHub (just Google “UUIDer”).
I have plans for implementing a save feature for saving already generated keys and adding notes for them, but this is low priority at the moment unless there’s a huge demand for it.
