ANN: A new wiki for PyQt and PyKDE

Discussion in 'Python' started by Torsten Marek, May 7, 2004.

  1. If have the pleasure to announce that we created a wiki for GUI
    development with PyQt and PyKDE at
    Everybody who searches for information about GUI creation with Python
    will find links to tutorials, howtos and sample code. If you never heard
    about PyKDE and/or PyQt, the time might be great, because PyKDE 3.11
    with support for KDE 3.2.x is in its beta stage right now and will be
    released soon.

    Even more, we ask you for your contributions to the wiki. We are
    searching for tutorials, documentation, (online) books, existing
    applications, development tricks, sample code, GUI design articles etc.,
    so please participate.

    About PyQt:
    PyQt contains the Python bindings to the Qt C++ GUI toolkit developed by
    Trolltech. With it, you can easily create complex multi platform GUI
    programs using RAD technologies. PyQt supports Linux and various
    flavours of Unix, MacOS X and Windows under a variety of licenses
    including the GPL and a commercial license. For licensing and prices,
    please look at the homepage of PyQt.
    With PyQt, you have all the benefits of the Qt toolkit, including the Qt
    Designer, SQL support and native widget look on Windows and MacOS X
    without the drawbacks of the C++ API like the moc and long compilation
    PyQt is written by Phil Thompson at Riverbank Computing, Ltd..

    About PyKDE:
    Based on PyQt, PyKDE provides Python interfaces to the KDE C++ API. It
    allows tight integration of your application into the KDE desktop
    environment and makes it indistinguishable from "native" C++ programs.
    You can not only use the more advanced KDE widgets, but also the
    state-of-the-art KDE technologies like KParts (the component model - why
    not make your own web browser with KHTML), KIO and KFile (use webdav,
    samba, fish and many more protocols like your filesystem), DCOP and the
    printing libraries (KDEPrint), combined with the productivity of Python
    and the well-known Qt tools.
    PyKDE is currently maintained by Jim Bublitz, early versions were
    written by Phil Thompson.
