Hey Kaare,

with Inline::Python you can use at least one of the Qt bindings python
has. I forgot whether it's PyQt or PySide that nine tested
Inline::Python with, but it did definitely work. And Inline::Python also
gives you Tk, bindings for GTK 2 and 3, WxWidgets and probably more others.

The KDE project has something called "SMOKE" that has almost zero
documentation, but it'd allow us to build a full binding for Qt with
relatively low effort - once someone has SMOKE figured out.

Other than that, we have a native Electron binding, which is the thing
that powers the Atom Editor if i'm not mistaken.

Maybe the "most wanted" document for native bindings wants a bit of a
touch-up in this area:


Hope that helps!
