PyQT5 Site Specific Browser

Project Description

pyssb is a package for building general purpose SSBs (Site Specific Browsers) with PyQT5.


You should be able to install the pyssb package via PyPI:

sudo pip install -U pyssb

You of course will need to install PyQT5 as well, but this probably needs to be installed via your OS package manager. You may have to separately install a PyQT5 webkit package separately.


You should be able to run pyssb to generate simple python executables.

If you would like to use pyssb, here’s a simple example of what is generated by the pyssb generator:

from   PyQt5 import QtWidgets
from   pyssb import *
import sys

ssb_config = {'name':'pyssb','title':'pyssb','url':''}

if __name__ == "__main__":
  app = QtWidgets.QApplication(sys.argv)
  ssb = SSBWindow(ssb_config)

See the samples folder for more examples.
