[ Python PyQt on mac OSX Sierra ]

Does anyone know if I can get to work PyQt 4 or 5 on a mac with the new OSX Sierra? It seems that I have to wait for a new version of PyQt but I am not sure if that is actually true. Thanks

The easiest way to install PyQt (4 or 5) on OSX is probably using Homebrew. This will also install a separate standalone Python from the system Python, meaning it will continue to work without problems following any future system updates.

According to this thread PyQt4 is no longer supported on macOS Sierra, but PyQt5 will still work.

Once you've installed Homebrew, you can install PyQt5 with the following:

brew install pyqt5 # for PyQt5
