Forum Thread: PySide or PyQT?

PySide or PyQT?

So I recently signed up for a friendly little programming contest, and to finish I'm going to need to learn to write a GUI. Writing code in python, so the frameworks I am contemplating are PySide and PyQT. This will be the first time I've ever done a GUI so I don't really know what I'm looking for when comparing them, so I open up to the community for input. What do you guys think?

I would go PyQT. I went from Tkinter to GTK to QT, and QT is the cleanest, funnest, fastest and most gorgeous. QT designer makes creating pretty interfaces a cinch, too.

It is more a matter of licence (GPL vs LGPL). PyQT is considered more "mainstream" as Side was a split, but for what it sounds like you are doing the diff is not much. I would just go with Py. </mytwocents>

Huh.. Thanks for the input!
