QtPy: Abstraction layer for PyQt5/PyQt4/PySide2/PySide
Copyright © 2009–2018 The Spyder Development Team
QtPy is a small abstraction layer that lets you write applications using a single API call to either PyQt or PySide.
It provides support for PyQt5, PyQt4, PySide2 and PySide using the Qt5 layout (where the QtGui module has been split into QtGui and QtWidgets).
Basically, you can write your code as if you were using PySide2
but import Qt modules from
qtpy instead of
Attribution and acknowledgments
pyqode.qt this is not a namespace package, so it is not tied
to a particular project or namespace.
This project is released under the MIT license.
You need PyQt5, PyQt4, PySide2 or PySide installed in your system to make use
of QtPy. If several of these packages are found, PyQt5 is used by
default unless you set the
QT_API environment variable.
QT_API can take the following values:
pyqt5(to use PyQt5).
pyqt4(to use PyQt4).
pyside2(to use PySide2)
pyside(to use PySide).
pip install qtpy
conda install qtpy
