A crash report framework for PyQt/PySide applications

Project Description


A PyQt/PySide framework for reporting application crash (unhandled exception) and/or let the user report an issue/feature request.


  • multiple builtin backends for reporting bugs:
    • github_backend: let you create issues on github
    • email_backend: let you send an email with the crash report.
  • highly configurable, you can create your own backend, set your own formatter,…
  • a thread safe exception hook mechanism with a way to setup your own function

  • Report dialog
  • Review report before submitting
  • Github integration


QCrash is licensed under the MIT license.


pip install qcrash


Basic usage:

import qcrash.api as qcrash

# setup our own function to collect system info and application log
qcrash.get_application_log = my_app.get_application_log
qcrash.get_system_information = my_app.get_system_info

# configure backends
github = qcrash.backends.GithubBackend('ColinDuquesnoy', 'QCrash')
email = qcrash.backends.EmailBackend('')
qcrash.install_backend([github, email])

# install exception hook

# or show the report dialog manually

Some more detailed examples are available. Also have a look at the API documentation.
