PyQt regex editor

Project description


QRegexEditor is a simple regular expression editor written in Python and PyQt.

You can use QRegexEditor as a standalone application but also as a widget in your own PyQt/PySide application.

The tool has been inspired by:


First install the package from pypi:

pip install qregexeditor --upgrade

Then you can run the application:



  • python (2.7 or >= 3.2)
  • PyQt5 or PySide or PyQt4

Using the widget in a custom PyQt application

Use the widget as any other qt widget.

You may specify the regular expression and the string pattern programmatically. You might also want to connect to the quick_ref_requested signal so that your application can show/hide a quick reference widget in the most appropriate place.

This example show you how to use the widget in a custom application.
import sys
from PyQt5.QtWidgets import QApplication, QMainWindow
# if you use PyQt4 or PySide, you must set the QT_API environment variable
# to select the proper bindings, see
from qregexeditor.api import RegexEditorWidget, QuickRefWidget

app = QApplication(sys.argv)
window = QMainWindow()
editor = RegexEditorWidget()
quick_ref = QuickRefWidget()
# show/hide quick reference widget
