qtutils is a Python library that provides some convenient features to Python
applications using the PyQt5/PySide2 widget library.
qtutils 3.0 dropped support for Python 2.7, PyQt4 and PySide. If you need to use these
platforms, you may use
qtutils 2.3.2 or earlier.
qtutils contains the following components:
invoke_in_main: This provides some helper functions to interact with Qt from threads.
UiLoader: This provides a simplified means of promoting widgets in
*.uifiles to a custom widget of your choice.
qsettings_wrapper: A wrapper around QSettings which allows you to access keys of QSettings as instance attributes. It also performs automatic type conversions.
icons: An icon set as a
QResourcefile and corresponding Python module. The resulting resource file can be used by Qt designer, and the python module imported by applications to make the icons available to them.

Qt: a PyQt5/PySide2 agnostic interface to Qt that allows you to write software using the PyQt5 API but have it run on either PyQt5 or PySide2.

Using icons with Qt designer
To use the icons from Qt designer, clone this repository, and point Qt designer to the
.qrc file for the icons set:
icons/icons.qrc. Unfortunately Qt desginer saves the
absolute path to this file in the resulting
.ui file, so if the
.ui file is later
edited by someone on another system, they will see an error at startup saying the
file cannot be found. This can be ignored and the
.ui file will still function
correctly, but Qt designer will need to be told the local path to the
.qrc file before
it can display the icons within its interface.
