Hello Aras,

Nice to hear you have Neptune up and running!

As far as the documentation is concerned, we are missing a lot there in the
Neptune. Except couple READMEs, there is not that much documentation in the
project. It is something that we should focus more in the future.

Other replies inline.

As we dont have the documentation right now, so there is no place. Usually
the best place would be in the doc/ folder within the root folder. We have
some wireframes, general one, and assets. For the feature requests, we have
a JIRA, but for the others we dont have them right now.

For Neptune itself, no, but for the Application Manager (used for running
the Neptune) you can find here client/application elements documentation
https://doc.qt.io/QtApplicationManager/qml-elements-apps.html. You can use
the QtCreator with Neptune as any other Qt project. I thin that Application
Manager integration with QtCreator is not yet done, but in the meantime you
can use a custom executable option within the QtCreator (you can find
something here http://doc.qt.io/qtcreator/creator-run-settings.html).

You can also check this video for the app development with QmlLive for the
Neptune: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2KooHmCH31s&feature=youtu.be

I hope this helps! Let us know if you have more questions.
