Reccomendations for best Python GUI Framework - NONweb

Posted 26 March 2011 - 01:13 AM

My boss says we are going to be creating "some cross platform windows type apps that will be used for utilities and some user things" and he is interested in using Python. I have used Python and love it, but only with a web framework and low level scripting. I would like to gather opinions on what GUI Framework you guys think is the best for this and why so that I can research them and find out their pros and cons.

Thanks in advance guys!

Basically I know about PyQT, TKinter, wxpython, and jython, but I hear wxpython is very strong because it also allows languages like PERL, C++, and some others, I even read a quote

Quote

"wxPython is the best and most mature cross-platform GUI toolkit, given a number of constraints. The only reason wxPython isn't the standard Python GUI toolkit is that Tkinter was there first." the words of Guido van Rossum, creator of Python
you canb find out about wxpython herewxpython.org

+1 for QT :-)

There are a couple of Python QT bindings I know of:
PyQT
PySide

They are pretty compatible, and I managed to switch between them by just changing the name of the module I import (disclaimer: my use of them is pretty basic - there may be more differences when you get into it deeper).
