I've built a Python application that has its own GUI. I am trying to use qgis.core/PyQGIS as map display only. Specifically, I have anaconda 2.3 and its Python distribution (2.7.11).
It seems that this scheme can only work if the application I am building (or anyone else' application) would need to "live inside QGIS world", i.e. move all dependencies to QGIS' Python distribution.
Could somebody give a definitive answer to this?
