C++ Question

Generate HTML using Qt

I try to programmatically generate HTML using Qt 5.7 and C++.

I would like to avoid using simple text streaming since this does not check HTML syntax.

I tried to use

QTextDocument
and
toHtml()
but it seems not to work very well. It generally supports a small HTML subset only and a lot of standard elements must still be coded into strings manually.

Is there a clean way to generate HTML code using Qt/C++? Maybe some class that does for HTML what
QDomDocument
does for XML?

Answer

I ended creating my own template and DOM bases template classes supporting the HTML subset I need.
