#Paste in the Python console and tip ex:
#RotateView(0,1,0,45)
def RotateView(axisX=1.0,axisY=0.0,axisZ=0.0,angle=45.0):
    import math
    from pivy import coin
    try:
        cam = Gui.ActiveDocument.ActiveView.getCameraNode()
        rot = coin.SbRotation()
        rot.setValue(coin.SbVec3f(axisX,axisY,axisZ),math.radians(angle))
        nrot = cam.orientation.getValue() * rot
        cam.orientation = nrot
        print( axisX," ",axisY," ",axisZ," ",angle)
    except Exception:
        print( "Not ActiveView ")
