Python is a powerful object oriented, dynamic language. You can find out more about the language itself on the Python website at http://www.python.org/.
Two important pieces of software are needed to develop KDE applications using Python, PyQt and PyKDE. PyQt provides Python support for the Qt library which KDE is built on. PyQt can be obtained at http://www.riverbankcomputing.co.uk/software/pyqt/ . Riverbank Computing has a lot of good documentation about how to use PyQt to create pure Qt applications. If you are new to KDE / Python development, then learning how to use PyQt is the best first step.
|The book Rapid GUI Programming with Python and Qt is available and covers Qt 4 programming with Python.|
PyKDE builds on top of PyQt and adds Python support for KDE's libraries and technologies.
PyKDE is distributed as part of the kdebindings module. Stable releases can be downloaded from the normal KDE download page, although it is usually easier to install pre-built packages from your operating system distribution. You can also obtain PyKDE from KDE's subversion repository:
The code in subversion can be browsed online via http://websvn.kde.org/trunk/KDE/kdebindings/python/pykde4/.
