New WYSIWYG Python IDE in the works

Hello all

I am currently developing a new WYSIWYG RAD tool for python.
There are screenshots and a small video demo on the site.
Please visit at http://www.geocities.com/visualfltk

(Sorry for that other post of mine. I don't know what went wrong)

Don't get me wrong - your project is pretty interesting and you can
certainly get valuable experience from it - but to be better than the
competition you need to be better than the competition.

This is great, but it might be worth finding out what the other IDE's
can do first, as well as their weaknesses.

Eric3 seems to be the most popular & powerfull. Uop until recentluy, it
onluy works on Linux, but has been compiled & runnin on Windows, to
some degree of success.

QTDesigner is pretty good.

There's also Boa Constructor, and a handfull of other IDE's.

I's suggest the Boa Constructor be classed with [wx?]Glade and
PythonCard as GUI builders, though I must confess I am not fully up to
date on Boa developments.

sorry for bothering you with my comment. From my point of view, the
situation on the IDE (GUI??) development field for Python is really
strange. Just try to imagine the same situation around the Python.
Plenty of different approaches, versions, philosophies etc. Why people
they really know the ways how to develop really good, prime and
functional SW (I mean different developers of IDEs) do not do it
together as a team (like in Python)? It is really strange to me? May be
I am missing something (I am a Python newbie), but the way to the Eric3
was really painful to me.

It is true that Boa has a heavy GUI development component but it is also
analogous to PythonWin with the benefit that it works with Linux and has
some other useful features. One minor weakness is that when debugging
the interactive actions are not in the local context.
