GUIE (GUI Editor) provides a simple WYSIWYG GUI editor for wxWidgets.
The program was made in C# and saves the GUI that was created to a XML
format I called GUIML. This GUIML is a pretty standard representation
of the GUI created with the program with some helpful additions for
.NET. Next, GUIE takes these GUIML files and translates it to either
wxPython Python code or wxRuby Ruby code (more languages in the
future). You may ask yourself why I took the extra step? Why didn't I
go straight from C# controls to wxPython code? Why is GUIML necessary?
Well, it isn't. It is there simply for people (or maybe I) to take the
GUIML and convert it to other languages. This, by effect can convert
this tool from a Python GUI editor, to "any programming language with a
GUI module" GUI editor.

The GUI Editor was built to be as point & click as possible, trying to
avoid wx's sizers completly. This means that controls can go anywhere,
and you have the freedom to play with the GUI however you want.
