Dabo might be a good solution if you are making GUI client-side apps.
Note that the OP mentioned using Javascript, so I'm assuming that the
OP is thinking about a web-based front end. It really depends on the
number of users and other factors. If there are many users, then a
web-based front end is possibly better in that each user does not have
to install software to use the application.(Only the browser is
required) Having each user install software can become a maintenance
nightmare if not implemented properly. Having the entire application
on a server allows you to make changes without having to deploy it to
many users. On client-side GUI apps, it'd be good to develop something
that checks if a new version of the software is necessary to download.

Oh well, I think I've babbled on enough about client side apps vs
web-based server side apps. I guess you get the idea.
