Python has a huge number of GUI frameworks (or toolkits) available for it, from TkInter (traditionally bundled with Python, using Tk) to a number of other cross-platform solutions, as well as bindings to platform-specific (also known as "native") technologies. Cross-Browser Frameworks Cross-Platform Frameworks The major cross-platform technologies upon which Python frameworks are based include Gtk, Qt, Tk and wxWidgets, although many other technologies provide actively maintained Python bindings. Inactive/Unmaintained Platform-specific Frameworks GUI Design Tools and IDEs CameronLaird's personal notes on Python GUIs includes over 25 links to toolkits and techniques for connecting python with a GUI. Opendocs previously had some material on Qt programming with Python for on-line reading, but ownership of the domain appears to have lapsed. - Wikipedia article describing several IDE's and GUI Builders.

Cross-platform In computing, cross-platform, or multi-platform, is an attribute conferred to computer software or computing methods and concepts that are implemented and inter-operate on multiple computer platforms.[1] The software and methods are also said to be platform independent. Cross-platform software may be divided into two types; one requires individual building or compilation for each platform that it supports, and the other one can be directly run on any platform without special preparation, e.g., software written in an interpreted language or pre-compiled portable bytecode for which the interpreters or run-time packages are common or standard components of all platforms.[2] For example, a cross-platform application may run on Microsoft Windows on the x86 architecture, Linux on the x86 architecture and Mac OS X on either the PowerPC or x86 based Apple Macintosh systems. Cross-platform programs may run on as many as all existing platforms, or on as few as two platforms. Platforms[edit]

Glade3 Python Gtk Tutorial Lets examine the code that does the status bar. First in the init function we need to get a context id to use with our push and pop functions. The count variable is initialized in the init function as we only want to assign 0 to it once. Init Function self.context_id = self.statusbar.get_context_id("status") self.status_count = 0 When the View > Push Status> button is pressed the 'on_push_status_activate function will push a message to the status bar and increment the count of how many has been pushed. 5 Top Python GUI Frameworks for 2015 As a Python developer, sooner or later you’ll want to write an application with a graphical user interface. Fortunately, there are a lot of options on the tools front: The Python wiki on GUI programming lists over 30 cross-platform frameworks, as well as Pyjamas, a tool for cross-browser Web development based on a port of the Google Web Toolkit. How to choose between all these options for Python GUIs? I started by narrowing it down to those that included all three platforms (Windows, Mac, and Linux) and, where possible, Python 3.

HOWTO Create Python GUIs using HTML Introduction Message passing is the means by which processes communicate. Much like humans communicate by talking to each other or writing notes to each other, so do computer programs communicate with each other. Sockets and pipes are prime examples of message passing technologies. GUI Applications Alphabetical list of GUI Applications. Cocoa Note The Cocoa framework is only available on OS X. Don’t pick this if you’re writing a cross-platform application! 4. How to Deal With Strings — Python GTK+ 3 Tutorial 3.4 documentation This section explains how strings are represented in Python 2.x, Python 3.x and GTK+ and discusses common errors that arise when working with strings. 4.1. Definitions¶ Conceptionally, a string is a list of characters such as ‘A’, ‘B’, ‘C’ or ‘É’. Characters are abstract representations and their meaning depends on the language and context they are used in. The Unicode standard describes how characters are represented by code points.

Installation — pip 7.1.2 documentation Python & OS Support¶ pip works with CPython versions 2.6, 2.7, 3.2, 3.3, 3.4 and also pypy. pip works on Unix/Linux, OS X, and Windows. Choose Your GUI Toolkit Find Your GUI Toolkit for Pythonbased on your preferences PyGUI, Tkinter, Easygui, wxPython, PythonCard, pyQt, pyGtk, Jython (Swing & AWT), Anygui, FXPy, pyFLTK; which one is for you? All of these toolkits are good. Tune back in as we explore them further. So you want to write a desktop app in Python This is an overview of the best tools and the best resources for building desktop applications in Python. First things first. You can build great desktop applications in Python, and some are widely used (like Dropbox). But you'll have to find your own way much more than you would using Microsoft's or Apple's SDKs.

Bayes' Theorem An Intuitive Explanation of Bayes' Theorem Bayes' Theorem for the curious and bewildered; an excruciatingly gentle introduction. Your friends and colleagues are talking about something called "Bayes' Theorem" or "Bayes' Rule", or something called Bayesian reasoning.

Making a MySQL GUI with Tkinter · Dealing Data With the start of every school year comes a number of undergraduates interested in working in our physics lab. In the past, new students had to learn how to interact with our MySQL databases before they could begin any data analysis. This year, I decided to write a Python GUI that will make accessing and cleaning our data easier for new students. The GUI will have a number of predefined query fields which the students can use to obtain data before saving that data to a local csv file. This approach will also reduce the number of students directly interacting with our MySQL database, and thereby reduce the risk of unintentional alterations to the data. We’ll cover the following topics:
