Creating GUI’s in Python 3

title: Creating GUI’s in Python 3

Popular ways for developing GUI’s in Python 3

Python provides various interfaces for creating Graphical User Interfaces(GUI’ s). Some of them popular ways are as under:

1. Tkinter

It is the standard builds of Python include an object-oriented interface to the Tcl/Tk widget set, called tkinter. This is probably the easiest to install and use (since it comes included with most binary distributions of Python).

2. wxPython

It is an open source, portable GUI class library written in C++ that provides a native look and feel on a number of platforms, with Windows, Mac OS X, GTK, X11, all listed as current stable targets. Language bindings are available for a number of languages including Python, Perl, Ruby, etc.

3. Qt

It has bindings available for the Qt toolkit (using either PyQt or PySide) and for KDE (PyKDE4). PyQt is currently more mature than PySide, but you must buy a PyQt license from Riverbank Computing if you want to write proprietary applications. PySide is free for all applications.

4. Kivy

It is a cross-platform GUI library supporting both desktop operating systems (Windows, macOS, Linux) and mobile devices (Android, iOS). It is written in Python and Cython, and can use a range of windowing backends.

Kivy is free and open source software distributed under the MIT license.

5. Gtk+

The GObject introspection bindings for Python allow you to write GTK+ 3 applications.
The older PyGtk bindings for the Gtk+ 2 toolkit have been implemented by James Henstridge.
