porting from Tkinter to pygtk

I am in the process of learning pygtk and I would like to port
some custom made Tkinter widgets to pygtk, just an exercise.
For instance I have this code:

.. from Tkinter import *
.. class AnimatedLabel(L abel):
.. def __init__(self, master, text, width=72, maxspc=16, deltat=100,
.. self.text = text
.. self.width = width
.. self.maxspc = maxspc
.. self.deltat = deltat
.. self.stringvar = StringVar(maste r)
.. self.stringvar. set(text)
.. self.stop = False
.. Label.__init__( self, master, textvariable=se lf.stringvar,
.. def startAnimation( self, spaces='', addspace=False) :
.. if len(spaces) == 0 or len(spaces) == self.maxspc:
.. addspace = not addspace
.. if addspace: # add a space
.. spaces += ' '
.. else: # remove a space
.. spaces = spaces[1:]
.. if not self.stop: # repeat each 100 ms changing spaces and
self.stringvar. set(spaces.join (self.text).cen ter(self.width) )
.. self.after(self .deltat, self.startAnima tion, spaces,
.. def stopAnimation(s elf):
.. self.stop = True
.. if __name__ == "__main__":
.. t = Tk()
.. t.title('Exampl e')
.. t.config(backgr ound='green')
.. a = AnimatedLabel(t , text="Hello", fg='blue', bg='green')
.. a.pack()
.. a.startAnimatio n()
.. t.mainloop()

what's the equivalent of the .after() method in pygtk?
BTW, is there any intro to pygtk thought for Tkinter users?

I would like like to start doing some GUI-programming in Python, but don't know which library to choose. Tkinter seems a bit old. Correct me if I am wrong!

PyGtk seems to be a modern, very clean and nice approach, but with poor

Hello, I happen to use in my programs a widget based on Tkinter Canvas. It is Zinc (http://www.tkzinc.org), which allows to draw using transparency, gradients, translations, rotations, ... using OpenGL. However, this widget depends on Tkinter, whose look I find oldy, though I would like to try PyGtk or wxPython. I would like to know if there is a method for using a Tkinter widget

Hello, I am trying to embed a Tkinter widget (TkZinc, http://www.tkzinc.org) inside a PyGtk HMI. A guru gave me this advice: "I think you can do some magic using the XID of the Tkinter widget's window to produce a GdkWindow" I wrote this little program, which gets the XID of the Tkinter window and uses it to create a gtk.gdk.Window.

I'm a Tcl/Tk developer who has been working, slowly, at learning Python, in part because Python has better support for certain kinds of applications that I want to develop than Tcl/Tk does. Naturally, I thought that I would use Tkinter as the GUI for these programs. However, in doing research into GUI development techniques, sample code, and showcase applications, what has struck me is how little sophisticated GUI development seems to be...

For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
