qpageview provides a page based document viewer widget for Qt5/PyQt5.
It has a flexible architecture potentionally supporting many formats. Currently, it supports SVG documents, images, and, using the Poppler-Qt5 binding, PDF documents.
import qpageview from PyQt5.Qt import * a = QApplication() v = qpageview.View() v.show() v.loadPdf("path/to/afile.pdf")
Versatile View widget with many optional mixin classes to cater for anything between basic or powerful functionality
Rendering in a background thread, with smart priority control, so display of large PDF documents remains fast and smooth
Almost infinite zooming thanks to tile-based rendering and caching
Printing functionality, directly to cups or via Qt/QPrinter
Can display pages originating from different documents at the same time
Can show the difference between pages that are almost the same via color composition
And much more! And…all classes are extendable and heavily customizable, so it is easy to inherit and add any functionality you want.
