      Also interesting to know.

      Also hope Michael will remind us at the end of May that Qt for Python is released

      By the way, blog post is cool

        Qt already had its "official" Python bindings, PySide for Qt4. This is a new version of them, for Qt5.

          the module providing Qt integration for the Python progrqamming language.

            I've been using Python on Linux with GTK+ over GObject Introspection (GI), and it is really nice.
            I look forward to GTK4 which will be even nice, I heard you won't need to call the show_all() method when adding widgets.
            Just too bad that gi_composites.py isn't officially part of GTK.
            Having to deal with multiple GtkPaned can be a bit annoying too.

              You're right. This being an article about Qt that should read: progrQtamming

                Healthy competition?

                The main reason for Qt for Python (previously PySide) to exist is that PyQt is GPL and requires purchasing an extra license for using it in non-GPL-compatible software.
                PySide (not Qt for Python) enables the use of Qt from Python without being restricted to the GPL or having to pay to a third party for a license in order to avoid the GPL.

                  For me, I thought coding in Python3+Qt5 was pretty easy. The only difficulty I had was how much the Qt Designer and documentation was pretty much only focused on C++.

                    There is some work on that, with patches in review already. Assuming you mean Qt Creator
