Python bindings for the Qt cross platform application toolkit

Project description

Qt is set of cross-platform C++ libraries that implement high-level APIs for accessing many aspects of modern desktop and mobile systems. These include location and positioning services, multimedia, NFC and Bluetooth connectivity, a Chromium based web browser, as well as traditional UI development.

PyQt5 is a comprehensive set of Python bindings for Qt v5. It is implemented as more than 35 extension modules and enables Python to be used as an alternative application development language to C++ on all supported platforms including iOS and Android.

PyQt5 may also be embedded in C++ based applications to allow users of those applications to configure or enhance the functionality of those applications.


PyQt5 is copyright (c) Riverbank Computing Limited. Its homepage is

Support may be obtained from the PyQt mailing list at


PyQt5 is released under the GPL v3 license and under a commercial license that allows for the development of proprietary applications.


The documentation for the latest release can be found here.


The GPL version of PyQt5 can be installed from PyPI:

pip install PyQt5

pip will also build and install the bindings from the sdist package but Qt’s qmake tool must be on PATH.

The sip-install tool will also install the bindings from the sdist package but will allow you to configure many aspects of the installation.
