magicgui: build GUIs from functions, using magic.

📖 Docs


magicgui uses pyqt to support both pyside2 and pyqt5 backends. However, you must have one of those installed for magicgui to work.

pip install magicgui pyside2  # or pyqt5 instead of pyside2

:information_source: If you'd like to help us extend support to a different backend, please open an issue.

Basic usage

class Medium(Enum):
    Glass = 1.520
    Oil = 1.515
    Water = 1.333
    Air = 1.0003

# decorate your function with the @magicgui decorator
def snells_law(aoi=30.0, n1=Medium.Glass, n2=Medium.Water, degrees=True):
    aoi = math.radians(aoi) if degrees else aoi
        result = math.asin(n1.value * math.sin(aoi) / n2.value)
        return math.degrees(result) if degrees else result
    except ValueError:
        return "Total internal reflection!"

# your function will now have a new attribute "Gui"
# call it to create (and optionally show) the new GUI!
snell_gui = snells_law.Gui(show=True)

Please see Documentation for many more details and usage examples.


Contributions are welcome!

Please note: magicgui attempts to adhere to strict coding rules and employs the following static analysis tools to prevent errors from being introduced into the codebase:

To prevent continuous integration failures when contributing, please consider installing pre-commit in your environment to run all of these checks prior to checking in new code.

pre-commit install

To run pyright, you will need to install with npm install -g pyright, then run pyright. See their docs for details.
