A Qt 5 QML Plugin that provides access to a Python 3 interpreter from QML.
PyOtherSide is a Qt 5 QML Plugin that provides access to a Python 3
interpreter from QML. It was designed with mobile devices in mind, where
high-framerate touch interfaces are common, and where the user usually
interfaces only with one application at a time via a touchscreen. As such, it
is important to never block the UI thread, so that the user can always
continue to use the interface, even when the backend is processing,
downloading or calculating something in the background.
At its core, PyOtherSide is basically a simple layer that converts Qt (QML)
objects to Python objects and vice versa, with focus on asynchronous events
and continuation-passing style function calls.
While legacy versions of PyOtherSide worked with Qt 4.x and Python 2.x, its
focus now lies on Python 3.x and Qt 5. Python 3 has been out for several
years, and offers some nice language features and clean-ups, while Qt 5
supports most mobile platforms well, and has an improved QML engine and a
faster renderer (Qt Scene Graph) compared to Qt 4.
This package contains the test suite that can be started post-installation.

pyotherside (1.4.0-2) experimental; urgency=medium
[ Zygmunt Krynicki ]
* Rename the binary package to qml-module-io-thp-pyotherside, closes: #780708
* Drop the (now obsolete) XS-Testsuite: autopkgtest header
* Add Sylvain as an uploader
[ Sylvain Pineau ]
* debian/control: Multi-Arch: foreign for pyotherside-tests was wrong
It was shipping an ELF file in /usr/lib/pyotherside/tests/tests
pyotherside-tests is now Multi-Arch: same and the files are installed in
* debian/control: Remove bd on python3 as we already build-depend on
* Fix autopkgtest to use the path containing DEB_HOST_MULTIARCH
[ Dmitry Shachnev ]
* Use dh-exec instead of an file to subst DEB_HOST_MULTIARCH
