How to use PyQTermWidget

Here is a minimal example:

#!/usr/bin/env python
# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-

from PyQt4.QtGui import QApplication
from pyqterm import TerminalWidget

if __name__ == "__main__":
    app = QApplication(sys.argv)
    win = TerminalWidget()
    win.resize(800, 600)

Look into for a more complete example with a tabbed terminal application.


The constructor has the following signature:

  • def __init__(self, parent=None, command=”/bin/bash”, font_name=”Monospace”, font_size=18)

The widget has the following methods:

  • execute(command=”/bin/bash”)
  • send(string)
  • stop()
  • pid() -> process id (int)
  • zoom_in()
  • zoom_out()
  • text_selection() -> string
  • update_screen()
  • is_alive() -> bool
  • row_count() -> int
  • column_count() -> int
  • text() -> string

TerminalWidget inherits directly from QWidget, so it has show, hide, setFont, etc.

The widget emits the following signals:

  • session_closed()
  • return_pressed()
