I spent some time a couple of years back looking at different GUI
builders for Python. Frankly I didn't like any of them. Nothing comes
close to the tools used in VisualBasic or Delphi etc.
Things may have improved in recent years and there are a few
tools that I didn't look at but for my limited GUI programming needs I
I'm just as well hand coding the GUI.
Just a personal view, others may differ. And if you intend to do a lot
GUI work (especially if you get paid for it!) then it may be worth
something that really does a good job.
