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).
After research on postings on this thread, 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 (preferably from QGIS team) to give a definitive answer to this.
