What is it?
FXPy is a Python extension module which provides an interface to the FOX
cross-platform GUI library. With a few minor exceptions, FXPy provides a
complete interface to FOX. FOX is a C++-based toolkit for developing
graphical user interfaces easily and effectively. Some of the
significant features of FOX include:
* A rich set of widgets (including dials, shutters, tree lists, and
many other "modern" widgets).
* Powerful but easy-to-use layout managers.
* Extensive support for 3-D modeling using OpenGL or Mesa.
* Supports the XDND protocol for drag-and-drop.
* Registry for persistent application settings.
* Runs natively under Unix/X and Microsoft Windows.
* And much, much more!
