PySide2  is a Python binding of the cross-platform GUI toolkit Qt, currently developed by The Qt Company under the Qt for Python project. It is one of the alternatives to the standard library package Tkinter. Like Qt, PySide2 is free software. The project started out using Boost.Python from the Boost C++ Libraries for the bindings and later switched to the binding generator Shiboken to reduce the size of the binaries and the memory footprint.
PySide was released under the LGPL in August 2009 by Nokia, the former owners of the Qt toolkit, after Nokia failed to reach an agreement with PyQt developers Riverbank Computing to change its licensing terms to include LGPL as an alternative license.
Work is currently underway to officially launch PySide2 as a Qt product, after all the effort on porting PySide to work with Qt 5.
Hello World example
# Import PySide2 classes import sys from PySide2 import QtCore, QtWidgets # Create a Qt application app = QtWidgets.QApplication(sys.argv) # Create a Window mywindow = QtWidgets.QWidget() mywindow.resize(320, 240) mywindow.setWindowTitle('Hello World!') # Create a label and display it all together mylabel = QtWidgets.QLabel(mywindow) mylabel.setText('Hello World!') mylabel.setGeometry(QtCore.QRect(200, 200, 200, 200)) mywindow.show() # Enter Qt application main loop sys.exit(app.exec_())
