Compile Qt resource files, UI files and translations in setup.py

Project description

Compile Qt resource files, UI files and translations in setup.py

Can be used with PyQt4, PyQt5, PySide and PySide2. Usage of Qt bindings wrappers like Qt.py or QtPy is also supported.

Requirements

Example

setup.py:

from setuptools import setup
from setup_qt import build_qt

setup(
    name='example',
    version='1.0.0',
    description='setup_qt example',
    author='Monty Python',
    author_email='monty.python@example.com',
    url='https://www.example.com',
    license='MIT',
    packages=['example'],
    package_data={
        'example': [
            '*.ui',
            '*.qrc',
            'languages/*.ts',
            'languages/*.qm',
        ],
    },
    entry_points={
        'gui_scripts': [
            'example=example.__main__:main',
        ],
    },
    install_requires=[
        'PyQt5',
        'Qt.py',
    ],
    options=[
        'build_qt': {
            'packages': ['example'],
            'languages': ['cs'],           # optional
            'languages_dir': 'languages',  # optional ('languages' is default)
            'bindings': 'PyQt5',           # optional ('PyQt5' is default)
            'replacement_bindings': 'Qt',  # optional (for Qt.py wrapper usage)
        },
    ],
    cmdclass={
        'build_qt': build_qt,
    },
)

Usage:

[user@host ~]$ python setup.py build_qt
running build_qt
compiling example Qt resource files...
compiling example Qt UI files...
updating example Qt translation files...
compiling example Qt translation files...
