pyqode.core 2.11.0

PyQt/PySide Source Code Editor Widget

Package Documentation


pyqode.core is the core framework of the pyQode project.

It contains the base classes and a set of extensions (modes/panels/managers) needed to develop a specialised code editor.

It also provides a basic generic code editor that you can use as a fallback when there is no specialised editor for a given language.


pyqode.core depends on the following libraries:

  • Python 2 (>=2.7) or Python 3 (>= 3.2)
  • PyQt5 or PyQt4 or PySide
  • pygments
  • pyqode.qt
  • future
  • qtawesome (optional)


You need to install PyQt or PySide by yourself. Note that you should prefer PyQt5 on Mac OSX (retina screen support, better integration).

Then you can install pyqode.core using pip:

$ pip install pyqode.core --upgrade


pyqode.core has a test suite and measure its coverage.

To run the tests, just run python test

To measure coverage, run:

python test -a "--cov pyqode"

To check for PEP8 warnings, install pytest-pep8 and run:

python test -a "--pep8 -m pep8"

To run a single test, use -a "--", e.g.:

python test -a "-- test/test_api/"

Testing Matrix
