This is a tool to help you develop desktop applications using Python Qt bindings of your choice for the 'front end' with django ORM for the backend.
Now also available as a VScode extension
Tested with PyQt5.11 and Django 2.1 on Ubuntu 18.4 and windows 10
Note that you need PyQt5 and Django to be already installed
Clone the repo then run:
sudo python3 setup.py
Open a cmd or a ps as admin and run
pyqt-admin --startproject proj_name destination

python3 manage.py makemigrations [app1, app2, ...]
python3 manage.py migrate [appname, appname2, ...]
Note that leaving apps blank will try to migrate all apps
