PyQt is an extension for Python that is a set of bindings to Qt's graphics libraries. Previously, PyQt functionality was implemented in the Eric development environment, but later the extension "grew" into a separate project. It allows you to "combine" the rich functionality and "flexibility" of the Qt framework with the simplicity and comprehensibility of the Python object-oriented programming language.

The extension is multi-platform and works on all modern operating systems. It allows you to implement almost all the classes, methods and functions of the above framework. Besides, there is a huge set of tools in it which will be useful for any developer. For example, PyQt includes a Qt Designer GUI designer with an integrated Python code generator. Qt Designer itself is an excellent prototyping tool and allows you to quickly integrate code for different management tools.

In addition, PyQt includes a complete set of graphical shell widgets, XML parser, supports SVG shapes, multimedia functions (audio and video playback) and can be integrated with the popular WebKit engine.

Structurally, PyQt is divided into ten independent modules: QtCore (working with basic graphics classes), QtNetwork (network classes), QtScript (classes for the built-in JavaScript interpreter), QtXml (classes that process XML), QtSql (classes for working with databases), and so on. In general, for each important function and class there is a "separate" module. The extension is distributed under the GPL license, i.e. it is completely free and has open source code.

- combining the "power" and "flexibility" of the Qt framework with the simplicity of the Python programming language;

- separate modules for scripting, database access, XML parsing, integration with the WebKit engine, vector graphics support (SVG and other important functions);

- Quick prototyping of graphical and interface prototypes and binding of Python code for control elements;

- the realization of multimedia opportunities;

- an integrated graphic shell designer (Qt Designer);

- a set of ready-made interface widgets.

PyQt is an excellent product as it works very well with Python and in addition to this there are many separate independent modules which all appear to work very well. One benefit of this is that it has an open source code which works very efficiently.
