PyKDE is a set of Python bindings for the KDE desktop environment that is used primarily as a GUI toolkit. Bindings are implemented as a set of Python modules that correspond to libraries in the kdelibs package. PyKDE supports nearly all classes and methods in these libraries. It also supports all of the enhancements to the Qt widget set developed by the KDE team as well as the 'standard' KDE dialog boxes, and features that greatly simplify the construction of menu/toolbar based GUIs. Additionally, you can mix PyKDE widgets and other classes with PyQt widgets and classes, just as you would in C++. Included modules are: dcop, kdecore, kdesu, kdefx, kdeui, kio, kfile, kparts, khtml, kspell, kdeprint and kmdi (with optional kjs). PyKDE supports KDE versions 3.0.0 to 3.2.3 and Qt versions 3.0.0 and later (as supported by PyQt). KDE 2 is no longer supported.
