wxGlade: A GUI builder for wxPython/wxWidgets


Version: 0.8.0 License: MIT (see LICENSE.txt)



wxGlade is a GUI builder for wxWidgets/wxPython. It can create Python, C++, Perl, Lisp and XRC output.


If you have a choice, you should prefer wxPython Phoenix running on Python 3.x.


To start the program, enter python in your shell or use whatever is required to start a python application on your platform. If you want to build a GUI for wxPython Classic or Phoenix: Start wxGlade in your target version - if it runs under Phoenix, it will create Phoenix code.


The documentation is at docs/html/index.html and includes a tutorial. You can view it from the help menu as well.

The target audience includes people who have not yet been using wxPython or wxWidgets before.

A snapshot of the documentation including tutorial can be found here: This one is not always up to date, though.
