Thanks for contacting the KDE community, Kuntal! Everyone can to the NIH
route but since you reach the KDE community, this would be my first
technical advice: look at ways of using KF5 instead of implementing its
functionality like any non-trivial Qt app would have to do anyway.

And since Linux is a cancer... consider joining KDE - use the KDE
infrastructure instead of MS infra :)
