Qt development in Glue¶

Using QtPy¶

If you are interested in working on some of the Qt-specific code, it’s important that you don’t import any code directly from PyQt or PySide. Since we want to maintain backward-compatibility with all of these, you should always use the QtPy package. The way to use this package is to import from the qtpy module as if it was the PyQt5 module, and QtPy will automatically translate this into the appropriate imports for PyQt or PySide if needed. For instance, instead of:

from PyQt5 import QtCore


you should do:

from qtpy import QtCore
