Project Description

What is pyqode.designer?

pyqode.designer is a single scripts that starts Qt Designer with the installed pyqode plugins.

It uses pkg config to collect pyqode_plugins entry points and adapt the PYQTDESIGNERPATH env var before starting Qt Designer.


pyQode is licensed under the MIT license.


  • pyqode.core

On Windows you just need to install PyQt4 (it contains the Qt Designer and the python plugins dll)

On GNU/Linux you have to install the following packages:

  • qt4-designer
  • pyqt4-dev-tools

Note that PyQt4 is only required to develop the ui files with Qt Designer, you can use and compile the ui files with PySide!


$ pip install pyqode.designer


$ python install

This will install the pyqode-designer gui script to your bin/Scripts folder.


Open a terminal and run the following command:

$ pyqode-designer

If you don’t want to install the package, you can just run the designer script manually (in the pyqode package):

$ python pyqode/


On GNU/Linux, a desktop entry in the Development category will be created when you install the package
