The Qt front end

Lino comes with a admin command qtclient that runs a Qt client for any Lino site.

In that case the front end is not a web application but a desktop GUI application. It can be combined with one or several web front ends.

At the moment this is just a proof of concept that is looking for a volunteer to evolve.

To see it in action, install a Lino contributor environment, manually install PyQt5 and then run it in any of the Lino demo projects. For example:

$ pip install pyqt5
$ go min2
$ python manage.py qtclient
