tkinter widget collection project

P: n/a
I, like a lot of developers, have collected a homegrown set of widgets for
Tkinter.

Any thoughts on a central repository for Tkinter widgets or widget
extensions? Stuff that's not in Tkinter or standard extensions like Pmw.

It would be nice if you could go to sourceforge and download a package
instead of hunting the Vaults, the Activestate cookbook, googling, etc.

If there's enough interest I'd be willing to set the project up on
sourceforge and provide some (limited) manpower towards packaging submitted
widgets.

Thanks,
Rick Lawson

Great idea!

Maybe it might be even nicer if it was not necessary to download the
whole package; I was thinking of a page where you could directly copy
and paste the code of a widget into your application.
I'm not sure about that, but maybe the Tkinter wiki Cameron Laird
mentioned might be a good place for that, it might make it easier for
other people to extend existing widgets (or maybe fix bugs in more
complex ones).

The wiki it is then, I see your point about being able to pick and
choose. At least it will be a central place where widgets can
accumulate.
