PyOtherSide: Asynchronous Python 3 Bindings for Qt 5

A Qt 5 QML Plugin that provides access to a Python 3 interpreter from QML.


    Qt >= 5.1.0
    Python >= 3.3.0

To build and install the QML plugin:

    make install

To build against a specific Python version, use:

    qmake PYTHON_CONFIG=python3.3-config
    make install

To manually update the qmltypes file on x64 Linux (TODO: make this automated):

    make INSTALL_ROOT=$(pwd)/tmp/
    qmlplugindump io.thp.pyotherside 1.0 tmp/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5/qml \

To run the included unit tests after building, use:


If you want to link PyOtherSide statically against Python 3, you can include
the Python Standard Library in PyOtherSide as Qt Resource and have it extracted
automatically on load, for this, zip up the Standard Library and place the .zip
file as "" into src/ before running qmake.
