    Python GUI design

    Hello all

    Does anyone know a good place to start learning GUI design with Python? Or any good IDE's (I checked out Gazpatcho, but it is not very straight forward)?

    I'm looking to pick this up fast to make cross-platform (Linux/Windows) apps instead of using VB for Windows only. I already know perl, but I've mostly done webapps in the past...

    Thanks

    Before executing any commands, make sure you kow what they mean, read this first!

    Use the wxPython toolkit, and use the wxGlade to design your fancy GUIs.

    Find it all at http://www.wxpython.org. You can apt-get for it, btw.

    sudo apt-cache search wxpython

    There's also Python Card, though I can't say I've tried it.

    I personally recommend using WxPython... It's a nice toolkit that is very cross-platform and adaptable. It's well worth the time to learn!

    Re: Python GUI design

    Aha!

    I started to play around in PyGTK, I'm a GNOME guy. But actually, now my plan was to get out of the boring job (which is deveolping business applications on that "other OS") and write a small system for small customers. So, I thought, maybe some of these will refuse to use a better, brown desktop OS and wants to stick with the playbox from Redmond for yet another year.

    Let's face it .. GTK didn't look too good on windoze last time I tried.. so wxWidgets started to bubble around in my brain. i downloaded, I looked att the documentation that didn't exist (that wiki isn't too good if you ask me) but still managed to get some apps going. But yeeeiiak - it really looks terrible on my Gnome 2 desk!? It looks a lot more native with the XP-stylish manifest on the other OS.

    So.. now what.. go GTK and demand everyone to run the Hedgehog or.. try to ignore the ugly GTK look of WxWidgets?
    *sigh*...

    One wonders when you last tried. I use Gaim and The GIMP's latest GTK2-Win32 builds and I think they blend in fairly well with the Windows environment when using the Wimp theme.

    One wonders again (we are really wondering a lot in this thread )
    "Wimp" theme?

    I'm running Dia on my winmachine, and of course the Gimp and I wouldn't say they look "Xp-ish" in their style? Maybe there's something I don't know..... *errrhmm - okay, there's actually A LOT that I don't know*
