Python GUI Code -- Best Practice

P: n/a

Hi --

I'm looking to write some WxPython based applications, and am looking for
existing applications of moderate complexity in order to read code and gain an
understanding of how these things are structured.

Tutorials aren't really useful - i've done most of them, and am looking to
gain more of a 'gesalt' sense of how such programs are structured for real
purposes.

Is there anything people would recommend me taking a look at ?

Thanks.

Hi,

WxPython has a demo which uses most widgets.

I don't want a demo - using the widgets is simply a case of writing the API
calls in the correct order. I want see how to structure an application - how
to ensure that the GUI stays response while multiple things are done in the
background - how and when to arrange polling of external events etc.

Check out the wxGuide editor, or any of the other wxGuide apps. While
not being terribly feature-filled, they do offer a view into the
/suggested/ visual layout, and hopefully, the way they would like
people's code to be laid out.

You might want to get wxGlade and create some apps, then check out
their organization.
