I asked this question about a year ago,
and for what I was used to (Delphi),
I can tell you, the link to the video looks terrible clumsy !!
And indeed there's nothing like that for Python,
there are a few (already forgot their names),
but unfortunately I couldn't get any of them working reliable.
I now work with a little procedure (much simpler than XRC),
and I'm even more satisfied with it than with Delphi.
Here an example:
    GUI = """
    NB            ,wx.Notebook   ,style = wx.NO_BORDER
      Panel1      ,PanelVer, 1   ,name  = "Hello"
        list1     ,wx.ListCtrl   ,style = wx.LC_REPORT
      Panel2      ,PanelVer, 11  ,name  = "Page2"
        window1   ,wx.Window
        window2   ,wx.Window
    exec ( Create_wxGUI ( GUI ) )
