What is your target launch time ?

Because in my apps I use a splash.qml file that contains an Image, an Animator and a Loader. Anything else.
And then the Loader will load the real main.qml of the application.
In that way, the launch time is around 2 seconds… then with a bit of creativity into the Animator you can craft an animation that fakes load all other elements of your user interface.

I'm wondering if there is anything I (or Qt) can do to get a launch screen up quicker, (reducing the time from launch to a screen- even if static). Maybe there is a way to get the launch screen up via native methods, then dynamically load Qt libraries, then start the app? I already use a Loader to get the main UI up ASAP, then load the rest of the app.
