I've heard "Tkinter is easier to learn" before, and I think I would once
have agreed. But now that there's a good book on wxPython, I think
wxPython's pretty easy to learn, and is now even better documented than
As I was learning wxPython, most of my learning gotchas were noting
differences from the Tkinter approach (including terminology). I think if
I were approaching wxPython with no prior GUI knowledge, it would be
approximately as easy to learn as Tkinter.
All this is assuming access to a copy of "wxPython in Action"; without the
book, you're back to a dearth of tutorials, and yes, Tkinter would be
easier to learn.
