I am new to QGIS script-writing and am using the PyQGIS Cookbook documentation to create a script which will read in a list of csv files and load them as layers. I'll want to define the style of the layers and then display them in the QGIS canvas and still have the QGIS functionality for manually analyzing the results. I am confused by what the PyQGIS Cookbook defines as standalone vs custom scripts. Standalone seems to be defined as "the" GUI is disabled, i.e.,
qgs = QgsApplication(, False) while Custom means "the" GUI is enabled, i.e.,
qgs = QgsApplication(, True).
Specifically, what GUI is inferred?
Are we talking about the QGIS GUI, e.g., the QGIS canvas?
