Good GUI for Python

The fastest way to learn about wxPython is to just download it and "Run the DEMO".
You will have a basic idea of its capabilities in 30 minutes just by playing with the demo.
You will be writing simple applications within a few hours if you have prior GUI experience.
(especially if you start with http://wxpython.org/test1.py.html).

www.wxpython.org

Also, you should take a look at wxDesigner.  It's an excellent tool for creating
forms and dialogs.  It will give you some ideas for code generation too.

Before creating any tool, be sure to see if someone else has already done it.

  Is there any detail books or resources talked about wxPython/ wxWindows architecture? I would like to code a GUI generator based on wxPython and MySQL. So I surveyed Python's GUI platform first. :)

    wxPython is the best.

    I use PythonWin as my IDE and wxPython as my GUI platform.  I find wxPython much easier than PythonWin mostly because MFC is hard to use (even though I've been using MFC in C++ and python (win32ui) for about 10 years).  Also, wxPython is portable, unlike win32ui.   I agree that win32ui is a masterpiece, but it is dependent on MFC, which is not a masterpiece :-(.

    I am going to switch to Komodo next (which absorbs Marks expertise but without the MFC limitations).  Komodo looks really nice, but I haven't gotten it to work on my system yet (probably because I have both Python 1.5.2 and 2.0 installed).  I'm looking forward to the switch.  I will continue to use wxPython as my GUI platform.
      Hi, All
       
      I surveyed 3 GUI framework for Python including wxPython, PythonWin's included win32ui and Tkinter. My development environment is Mark Hammond's PythonWin downloaded from ActiveStates.
       
      These're my issues:
       
      First, ActiveStates' Python tool cannot support Tkinter and I confirmed with their stuff. So Tkinter maybe good, but not compatible with PythonWin.
       
      Second, Mark's masterpiece win32ui and total MFC solution is excellent, but I'd wanna bind on Windows platform.
       
      Third, wxPython sounds great but not so easy as win32ui.
       
      Is there any suggestions ? Change my develop environment or is there another good gui for me ??
