I used to have a PySide (Qt4.8) application, but I decided to move on
since Qt5 will probably never see a PySide port. Also, I don't remember
where I found it, but I read that Qt 4.8 is going to be discontinued
later this year, although other PySide developers may confirm it (or not).
If you want to go with Qt5, you can either check PyQt5, or go with QML +
Pyotherside. Pyotherside is a C++ bridge which allows you to call Python
code from your QML code. QML is quite good nowadays, and with
Controls you can use native OS widgets within QML.
But there are other possible routes: In my personal case, since I needed
SVG's and the SVG support in Qt5 is very bad (specially on the retina
MacBooks - not webview), my only solution was to go with web
technologies. So currently I am rewriting my desktop app with the
following stack: Atom-shell for the desktop launcher and webview,
and node.js as wrapper for the stuff that need to interface with C/C++
and Databases. This is my cross-platform desktop app stack.
I would prefer to keep using Qt5 and Python, but SVG sucks in Qt5 and
currently doing). Python is great, but is completely lacking in
browserland (projects as "Brython" are not performant enough), and
