Travis CI pypi version LinuxCNC 2.8 Chat on IRC Chat on Matrix Chat on Gitter

QtPyVCP is a Qt and Python based framework for building virtual control panels for the LinuxCNC machine control.

The goal is to provide a no-code, drag-and-drop system for making simple VCPs, as well as a straightforward, flexible and extensible framework to aid in building complex VCPs.

  • Python 2.7
  • PyQt5 or PySide2

QtPyVCP is developed and tested using the LinuxCNC Debian 9 (stretch) Live ISO. It should run on any system that can have PyQt5 installed, but Debian 9 is the only OS that is officially supported.
