    Python libraries for GUI apps creating


    Hi there!

    I am interesting wich libraries people use to create GUI applications? I heard about wxPython, FXPy, AnyGui, PyQT. Do any another useful GUI-libs exist? How Python programmers estimate these things considering their functionality (and maybe licensing). Which library everyone preffers?

    TIA

    I prefer Tkinter, which is the GUI library that comes packaged with Python. It's free and very easy to use.

    It all depends on what your target market is.

    If you're developing an application that you want everyone to be able to use, then I'd opt for wxPython, since code that uses this toolkit can not only use wxPython's own toolkit, but also use the Gtk toolkit without using any extra code (Qt is in the works).

    Otherwise, I'd go for Qt, just because I think it's the most powerful toolkit, and once you get the hang of it, it's very easy to use (especially using the "designer" tool to design the UIs).

    You might also want to check out PyGtk, PyGnome and PyKDE by the way.
