Toolkit frameworks are collections of code that can be used across apps and engines. You can read more about frameworks in general in our core API documentation.
We provide a public API for the following frameworks, which can be used in your app development:
The Shotgun Utilities Framework, or
tk-framework-shotgunutils, is a collection of Shotgun-related helpers and utilities that make App development easier. It includes a Shotgun (MVC) Model, which makes it easy to connect a Shotgun query with a standard QT View, as well as classes for managing settings, background Shotgun processing, and globals such as schema, statuses, and icons.
The QT Widgets Framework, or
tk-framework-qtwidgets, is a large collection of Shotgun-related QT widgets that make it easy to quickly build a nice looking front-end to your App. It includes multiple custom QT views, delegates, and widgets.
