Python bindings for the QScintilla programmers editor widget

Project description

QScintilla is a port to Qt of the Scintilla programmers editor widget. It supports the traditional low-level Scintilla API and implements a high-level API covering such things as auto-completion, code folding and lexer configuration.

These Python bindings implement a single extension module that sits on top of PyQt5 and wraps both the low-level and high-level APIs.

QScintilla 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 QScintilla can be installed from PyPI:

pip install QScintilla

The wheels include a statically linked copy of the QScintilla C++ library.

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.
