pyFLTK is a wrapper for the Fast-Light Toolkit - a cross platform GUI library.
The wrapper also includes a program to convert the FLTK GUI designer output  to
Python code.

The library is available at:  http://fltk.netpedia.net/

Bowser's now have preliminary  data support, flconvert (Fluid GUI
Builder to Python) is now a program and supports scoped identifiers.

Hello World with a Cancel Button looks like this:

from fltk import *
 import sys

 def theCancelButtonCallback(ptr):

 window = Fl_Window(100, 100, 200, 90, sys.argv[0])
 button = Fl_Button(9,20,180,50,"Hello World")
 window.show(len(sys.argv), sys.argv)
