Hi Pythonistas!

This is another post in the series about making desktop applications using Python. If you are new here please check the previous posts on our site. Today we will learn how to convert any website to a desktop application with 20 lines of python code. Let us create a youtube application today. Let us dive into the code


import sys
from PyQt5.QtWidgets import QApplication
from PyQt5.QtWebEngineWidgets import QWebEngineView
from PyQt5.QtCore import QUrl, QSize
from PyQt5 import QtGui

def main():
   app = QApplication(sys.argv)
   window = QWebEngineView()
   app_icon = QtGui.QIcon()
   app_icon.addFile('youtubelogo.png', QSize(256,256))

if __name__ == '__main__':

We are using QWebEngineView to load the youtube and add the logo to the app. Please check our last part of the series if you need a detailed explanation. 

By just changing the URL and logo you can create any desktop application for any web app.
