Desktop Apps with Python PyQt5

About the Book

This book teaches you building Desktop Apps with Python. It uses the PyQt framework to do so and it covers everything you need to know to get started. While PyQt is large and documentation can become bulky, this book covers the parts of PyQt you need to know to get started. It teaches about widgets, layouts, events and various other concepts. The book includes software projects like building a BMI calculator, building a web browser and building a text editor.
