Qt for Python#

Qt for Python offers the official Python bindings for Qt, which enables you to use Python to write your Qt applications. The project has two main components:

  • PySide6, so that you can use Qt6 APIs in your Python applications, and

  • Shiboken6, a binding generator tool, which can be used to expose C++ projects to Python, and a Python module with some utility functions.

Porting from PySide2 to PySide6 provides information on porting existing PySide2 applications.

This project is available under the LGPLv3/GPLv3 and the Qt commercial license.

Quick Start#

You can obtain the latest stable version by running pip install pyside6. If you want to build it yourself, check the getting started guide.
