    Phoronix: Qt For Python 5.12 Now Available

    Building off the Qt 5.12 LTS release from the beginning of December, Qt For Python 5.12 is now available so Python coders can utilize this latest version of the Qt5 tool-kit for building graphical user interfaces...

    I'm all for more options. However, Qt has been very dishonest in the way they advertise this. Take a look at their video, for example:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ic0PnF04N-Q

    "The Python developer lacks the ability to create user interfaces."

    This is the narrative they've been pushing everywhere. On their sites, on their blogs, and on their videos. Never mind that is isn't true at all, since PyQt has existed for ages.

    Really? You're going to base your relationship with your targeted audience on dishonesty?

      The argument here is not that PyQt has existed for ages, it's more like that there are plenty of alternatives ;-)

        well at least this qt_to_python wrapper seems to provide proper documentation.
        it's an understatement to say that pyqt, pygtk and "py-tkinter" documentations are not very good, outdated and fragmented.

          Is there any technical reason for GPL3 code to use it over PyQt5? It seems like PyQt5 support is more comprehensive and mature. I suppose if someone has the budget for official Qt support that could be nice. But then again they're probably more likely to be writing non-free code if that's the case.

            PyQt is more comprehensive, and works beautifully, so its the best choice to have full access to the API, it covers just about the whole thing.

              The license of pyqt5 is a showstopper...
