Raw pyqt instead of Designer

I’m not sure if this is the right place for this so feel free to move it if need be.

Is it possible/not too arduous to develop the Settings tab for a custom module without using QtDesigner? I’ve always found Designer to be really limiting and annoying to use, but from looking at the settingsUI.py file in many of these modules, the generated code is pretty dense and opaque and I’m not sure what all I need to override/implement to get everything to work correctly.

I would prefer to just write up the UI in code. Am I making a ton of extra work for myself?


yes is possible. But I don’t have any example, you will need to do it from scratch and replace the settingsUI.py with your version.

the only thing you need is to implement

or if you prefer to change it, just update also the guide.py

Awesome, that’s what I was looking for. Thank you!
