Extended scene library

pip install PyQtExtendedScene==1.0.12



PyQtExtendedScene is a little library for creating workspaces. Having described the method of drawing your components, with this library you get (draggable) workspace (scene) where the components you described can be selected, moved, deleted, etc. The scene itself can be increased, reduced, the work area may be moved.

In short, with this library you can create minimalistic (very minimalistic) similarities of such programs as AutoCAD, Labview, yEd, etc.



Installation is very simple:

pip install PyQtExtendedScene

Working example:

from PyQt5.QtWidgets import QGraphicsEllipseItem
from PyQt5.QtCore import QRectF, QPointF
from PyQt5.QtGui import QBrush, QColor
from PyQtExtendedScene import ExtendedScene, AbstractComponent

# Let's describe our own component
class MyComponent(AbstractComponent):
    selected_size = 20
    normal_size = 10

    def __init__(self, x: float, y: float, descr: str = ""):
        super().__init__(draggable=True, selectable=True, unique_selection=True)
        self._r = self.normal_size

        self.setPos(QPointF(x, y))

        # We must describe how to draw our own component
        # Our own component will be just a circle
        self._item = QGraphicsEllipseItem(-self._r, -self._r, self._r * 2, self._r * 2, self)
        # .. yellow circle

        # Add description to our object - it will be used in "click" callback function
        self._descr = descr

    # We must override parent method "select" because our component changes shape when selected
    def select(self, selected: bool = True):
        # Radius of our circle changes when selected
        self._r = self.selected_size if selected else self.normal_size
        # redraw our object with new radius
        self._item.setRect(QRectF(-self._r, -self._r, self._r * 2, self._r * 2))

    # That is our own property
    def description(self):
        return self._descr

if __name__ == '__main__':
    import sys
    from os.path import isfile
    from PyQt5.QtWidgets import QFileDialog, QApplication
    from PyQt5.QtGui import QPixmap

    app = QApplication(sys.argv)

    # Open workspace background image
    path_to_image = "workspace.png"
    if not isfile(path_to_image):
        path_to_image = QFileDialog().getOpenFileName(caption="Open workspace image",
                                                      filter="Image Files (*.png *.jpg *.bmp *.tiff)")[0]

    image = QPixmap(path_to_image)
    image = image.scaled(800, 600)
    # Create workspace!
    widget = ExtendedScene(image)

    # Let's add some components to our workspace
    widget.add_component(MyComponent(10, 10, "My component 1"))
    widget.add_component(MyComponent(100, 200, "My component 2"))

    def left_click(component):
        if isinstance(component, MyComponent):
            print(f"Left click on '{component.description}'")

    # Handle left click
