Qt resource file containing Tango icons

Project description

Provides a Qt resource file containing Tango icons.


Using pip:

pip install pyqttango

In your code,:

import pyqttango

You can then use the fromTheme(name) command of QIcon to get Tango icons. For example:

import sys
import pyqttango
from PyQt5 import QtGui # or from PySide2 import QtGui

app = QtGui.QGuiApplication(sys.argv) # Only necessary if an application is not already created
icon = QtGui.QIcon.fromTheme('accessories-calculator')

For the possible icon names, please refer to the Icon Naming Specification or WikiMedia Commons.

Release notes


  • Use qtpy instead of PyQt5. This allows the library to be compatible with PySide2 and PyQt5
  • Update license to Apache Software License 2.0


pyqttango generates the Qt resource file (.rcc) using all SVG images available on WikiMedia Commons. The resource file is distributed as part of the wheel. If you want to manually create it, run:

python3 generate_rcc
