Better docs specifically for the Python API are being worked on.
Until then here are some rules for translating from C to Python:
o gtk_ -> gtk.
o gnome_ -> gnome. or gnome.ui. (depending on header file)
o g_ -> gobject.
o gdk_ -> gtk.gdk.
Class names are in "StudlyCaps" (same as the C typenames without the "Gtk"
o gtk_class_name_new() -> gtk.ClassName() e.g. gtk.TreeView()
o gtk_class_name_new_with_foo(myfoo) -> gtk.ClassName(myfoo)
Method names are generally the same as C method names.
e.g. gtk_tree_view_get_column(treeview, 4) -> treeview.get_column(4)
In general, in/out parameters become return values. Usually in cases where a
"failure" would be returned, None is returned.
gtk_class_name_method_name(instance, a, b, &c, &d)
-> c, d = instance.method_name(a, b)
gtk_tree_view_get_path_at_pos(treeview, x, y, &path, &column, &cell_x,
-> path, column, cell_x, cell_y = treeview.get_path_at_pos(x, y)
GTK_WINDOW_TOPLEVEL -> gtk.WINDOW_TOPLEVEL
GDK_KEY_PRESS -> gtk.gdk.KEY_PRESS
FALSE, TRUE -> gtk.FALSE, gtk.TRUE
o instance.connect() instead of signal_connect()
o paths in TreeView/Models are just tuples.
o string lengths do not need to be specified
o The TreeViewColumn constructor can take named parameters for the
cell = gtk.CellRendererText()
column = gtk.TreeViewColumn(colname, cell, text=i, editable=j)
