C++ Question

using qt creator only as editor: are qt libraries necessary

I want to use qt creator, only as an editor, which does code completion and finds declarations etc. I dont want to use it to build etc. Is there a way, I can circumvent the need of qt-libraries? I am using a server, where my file space is limited. Also, without qt libraries, it does not allow making even a project. When I tried to install qt-libraries, it configures fine, but on make gives error.

So, can you suggest an alternative? Thanks

No, you need the Qt libs because the editor was coded in Qt.
