trying to create a very simple standalone QGIS application using Eclipse (version 2018-09) with python interpreter (python 3.7), PyQt5, QGIS 3.4 ("madera"), following the "python python programming cookbook": "creating a standalone application".
(this pdf (2015) is definitely for older versions of QGIS & python, so I cannot follow it literally).

When I "run" the project in Eclipse I have the following message, over and over again (whatever adaptations I make in path and python_path systems variables):
"python3: this application failed because no QT plugin platform could be initialised."
No solution found after 3-4 hours of searching on internet (to recent versions ?)

Please also notice I'm a newbie, no IT-guy at all, I barely know what a batfile is. ..
So most of the internet techdiscussions are kind of Chinese for me.
Your suggestions should be really step-by-step. Thanks very much.
