Which begs the question of if it's worth it to bother with QML at all, or at least, when there is the option of something else like widgets. It has a more complex model of mixing the two worlds, it requires additional build system support, and the tooling support is also an additional layer that can break more often, even for trivial examples like in https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTCREATORBUG-24987 (which BTW, has at least two people saying that it isn't fixed, and I did not comment myself because I stopped caring).

Sorry if I'm salty, but I keep reading things that push me away from liking QML, and the things that are supposedly worth the effort are a bit underwhelming, to be honest.
