I'm trying to test a program written in Python with a front panel generated with Qt Designer (converted from .ui to .py using pyuic4). I can make the following code work outside Emacs, from a terminal (it is just a main window with some labels and buttons):
from PyQt4 import QtCore, QtGui from panelSimple import Ui_VentanaPrincipal class Window(QtGui.QMainWindow): def __init__(self): QtGui.QMainWindow.__init__(self) self.ui = Ui_VentanaPrincipal() self.ui.setupUi(self) if __name__ == '__main__': import sys app = QtGui.QApplication(sys.argv) miVentana = Window() miVentana.show() sys.exit(app.exec_())
I would like to execute this code from within Emacs, but when I send the buffer to the Python interpreter, and it opens an "Inferior Python" buffer, nothing happens.
On the other hand, if I don't use any graphical user interface, python programs work very well.
Is it possible to make my program's GUI execute from inside Emacs?
I started using Spacemacs with its default settings. For my tries I select a virtual environment (with PyQt4 installed), and then I send the buffer to the interpreter. I don't know what other information could be useful to answer my question.
