Download & Install

pyspread works on Linux, Posix platforms and Windows, on which PyQt5 is available. While there have been reports that pyspread can be used on OS X, OS X is currently unsupported (can you help?).

Install pyspread

It is recommended to install pyspread as a package that is provided for your operating system. The table below shows for which operating systems, pyspread is available in which version.

Packaged

If pyspread is unavailable or outdated for your operating system, you can install it using one of the three methods below.

When using pip, a Python virtual environment (venv) is recommended. Some operating systems may nudge your towards this. pipx could be a solution if venv is no option for you.

Furthermore, note that the QtSvg extensions for PyQT are required. For some operating systems, they are packaged separately from PyQt. Please make sure QtSvg is installed on your system before using pip.
