I am looking for a tutorial of how to create a plugin for QGIS.

I want a tutorial that:

  1. Explains about the latest version of QGIS
  2. Working in windows environment.
  3. adequate for absolute beginners and explains step by step.

A search on the web brought up a few tutorials but none of them answers all requirements.

p.s. I have knowledge in python programming.

Can anyone help with finding such a tutorial?


I wrote a short getting started based on the plugin builder plugin http://anitagraser.com/2014/04/26/getting-started-writing-qgis-2-x-plugins/. While I work on Windows, it's not very specific to the operating system.

Do you mean absolute GIS beginners, absolute programming beginners, absolute Python beginners, or absolute QGIS beginners? :D It needs more than a simple tutorial to get non-programmers started. The PyQGIS Programmer's Guide book by Gary Sherman might be suitable since it starts with the very basics.
