PyQt on Android

With the tool pyqtdeploy you can deploy a PyQt5 app to:

  • Windows
  • GNU/Linux
  • Mac OS X
  • Android
  • iOS

Click here to see pyqtdeploy’s documentation. It is a GUI tool that will package your PyQt5 application and compile it for the target platform.

It lets you select various Qt modules to include in the compilation:

On the command-line you would use the pyqtdeploy-build command like this:

pyqtdeploy-build pyqt-demo.pdy

Back in June 2016, there was a mailing list message that indicated that pyqtdeploy works. It’s 2018 as I’m writing this so I assume pyqtdeploy has matured; the latest package version is 2.0.1 which was released on 5 January 2018.
