Social Connect QML Plug-in

This plug-in delivers an interface for Qt Quick developers for accessing the APIs of Facebook and Twitter that allow creating mobile applications powered by social media.

The plug-in is hosted in Nokia Developer Projects:

The main features of the plug-in are:

  • Out-of-the-box support for Facebook and Twitter
  • Integrated authentication implementation
  • Simplified common interface for all supported services
  • Interfaces for native API calls
  • Design enabling easy addition of new services e.g. LinkedIn

The plug-in also contains some simple examples.

The plug-in can be used as a pre-compiled shared library or you can copy the source code into your project and compile it with your application. Although the plug-in has been designed to be used with QML UI applications, it can also be used as-is with Qt C++.

4. Building and using the plug-in

4.1 Preparations

Check that you have the latest Qt SDK installed in the development environment and the latest Qt version on the device.

4.2 Using the Qt SDK

You can install and run the application on the device by using the Qt SDK. Open the project in the SDK, set up the correct target (depending on the device platform), and click the Compile button. For more details about this approach, visit the Qt Getting Started section at Nokia Developer (

4.3 Using the plug-in in your application

The plug-in is by default compiled and installed to plugin/install. After this, you can use the plug-in in your QML application by doing "import SocialConnect 1.0". Note that the plugin/install directory must be in your QML module import path.

Visit the online project documentation and see the examples for more information.
