wxpython or PyQT to make a simulink clone ?

I would like to make a software like simulink:
http://www.mathworks.com/cmsimages/s...ge_wl_7488.gif

using python.
In order of bulding the interface (drag&drop block, link system between
the blocks, run the simulation, double click on a block to open its
properties, ...) which library will make my job easyer, PyQT or
WxPython ?

wxPython has OGL which provides part of such an interface.

thank you.
I am watching the exemple of OGL. Very interesting!

VIPER is perhaps the tool to look for
http://www.scripps.edu/~sanner/python/viper/index.html
Here the presentation at SciPy:
http://www.scipy.org/documentation/W...nner_viper.pdf
There where some rumours that it will be released under some free License, but
I never heared anything about that.
I did myself a very simple visual interface based on some work of Matt
Kimball. See http://truffaldino.sf.net
Here I concentrated on all the stuff behind and on the simulation stuff. This
uses wxPython for the graphical interface. That could be perhaps a starting
point if you want to do something on your own. In my belief you would have to
make it far more eyecandy ...

Hope that helps a bit.

I have seen the later code of Eric Lechak looked very interesting, but the
link above is not active any more.

Unfortunately I have no copy any longer ...

thank you,

I checked viper, but the license is not so simple..
I am testing your truffaldino !
seems interesting, but I could not launch it.
I am running:
Python 2.3
wxpython 2.6 (for python 2.3)
I installed mtalib, Truffaldino, Smeraldina and nodenet.
Also installed DSV and pygsl-0.3.1_Numeric.win32-py2.3.exe

Then, I launch /smeraldina/gui/wxsmeraldina

but, nothing ..
I do not have error messages. it could import all the modules.

Can you please help me ?
