PyQt - Python Bindings for the Qt Toolkit
These are the Python bindings for Qt. You must also have the SIP Python
bindings generator installed.
The homepage is http://www.riverbankcomputing.co.uk/pyqt/.
The homepage of SIP is http://www.riverbankcomputing.co.uk/sip/.
If you have the Commercial version of PyQt then you should also have a
license file that you downloaded separately. The license file must be copied
to the "sip" directory before starting to build PyQt.
Check for any other README files in this directory that relate to your
particular platform. Feel free to contribute a README for your platform or to
provide updates to any existing documentation.
The first step is to configure PyQt by running the following command.
This assumes that the correct Python interpreter is on your path. Something
like the following may be appropriate on Windows.
If you have multiple versions of Python installed then make sure you use the
interpreter for which you wish to generate bindings for.
The configure.py script takes many options. Use the "-h" command line option
to display a full list of the available options.
The next step is to build PyQt using your platform's make command.
The final step is to install PyQt by running the following command. (Depending
on your system you may require root or administrator privileges.)
THE REST OF THE DISTRIBUTION
The "examples2" and "examples3" directories contain some examples (for Qt v2.x
and Qt v3.x respectively) of Python scripts, including versions of the standard
Qt tutorials and examples.
The "doc" directory contains SGML and HTML documentation for the bindings.
This documentation includes a section describing the differences visible to
the Python programmer between this and the previous version - please read it.
