Qt has far better documentation, and it has Qt Designer. The
documentation is a big deal. I wrote a little project in wxPython, and
I spent 90% of my time just trying to find the names of member functions
and then to figure out what they do.
Why not use Qt C++? I like Python a lot. Heck, I even embedded it in a
robot controller that might have wrangled some of the wafers that went
into your computer chips. But I think I would go with C++ for a medium
size GUI project.
