Hello,

When speaking of framework bringup I assume you mean how to get the application to target. Storyboard Designer exports a data model of the UI and not code which needs to be compiled. Therefore you can generate the UI (gapp file) from Storyboard Designer and copy that folder to the target, we also support direct exporting to the target via scp. Please see these links:

Once the application is on the target you need to copy/install the proper Engine to the system. Storyboard provides an optimized Engine for each OS/CPU/rendering combination. Please see the following video for a description of this process:

When comparing Qt to Storyboard (Crank) we need to look at the development process, memory usage and performance. Please refer to the following posts regarding this topic:
