Welcome to the pyside2 wiki!

PySide is a Python 2/3 binding for Qt4.
PySide2 is a binding for Python 3 and Qt5.

Why there is no PySide2 for Python 2? Because Python 2 extensions like PySide need to be compiled with ancient version of MS Visual C++ 9 and that means that all linked libs including Qt need to be compiled with this version. But Qt5, the library that PySide2 wraps, dropped support for MS VC++ 9, and code is unlikely to compile for it anymore. The only solution to fix this, is to help with development and funding of https://mingwpy.github.io/

You can’t perform that action at this time.
