pip install pywebview
This will install pywebview with default dependencies. To install pywebview with PyQt5 (available on Linux and macOS) use
pip install pywebview[qt]

pip install pywebview[cef]
pythonnet (requires > .NET 4.0)
To use with CEF you need cefpython
pip install cefpython3
PyObjC comes presintalled with the Python bundled in macOS. For a stand-alone Python installation you have to install it separately.
You can also use QT5 in macOS
pip install pywebview[qt] should take of QT dependencies. If it does not work or you would like to use GTK, you may try these recipes.
PyGObject is used with GTK. To install dependencies on Ubuntu for both Python 3 and 2
sudo apt install python3-gi python3-gi-cairo gir1.2-gtk-3.0 gir1.2-webkit2-4.0
For other distributions, consult the PyGObject documentation
Note that WebKit2 version 2.22 or greater is required for certain features to work correctly. If your distribution ships with an older version, you may need to install it manually from a backport.
PyQt5 is used with QT.
pywebview supports both QtWebChannel (newer and preferred) and QtWebKit implementations. Use QtWebChannel, unless it is not available on your system.
To install QT via pip
pip install pyqt5 pyqtwebengine
To install QtWebChannel on Debian-based systems (more modern, preferred)
sudo apt install python3-pyqt5 python3-pyqt5.qtwebengine python3-pyqt5.qtwebchannel libqt5webkit5-dev
To install QtWebKit (legacy, but available for more platforms).
sudo apt install python3-pyqt5 python3-pyqt5.qtwebkit python-pyqt5 python-pyqt5.qtwebkit libqt5webkit5-dev
Starting from Ubuntu Disco Dingo pywebview can be installed via
apt on Debian based system as
python-pywebview. This package features an old version of pywebview that is API incompatible with the current version. If you choose to install it, you can find documentation here
