Alternatives to Tkinter

It isn't particularly fast and isn't a good candidate for games or for image-manipulation programs. Its high-level approach means that particularly unusual or specialized user interfaces may be difficult to implement. Or, you may not have the time to learn Tkinter. Fortunately, alternatives are available. The next cross-platform GUI option is GTK. This is the GIMP Toolkit and is the basis for the GNOME desktop environment project, which is comparable to KDE. GTK is similar to Qt in scope and capability, and it has also been ported from Linux UNIX to work on Windows and Mac OS X. Another interesting option with GTK is Glade, a graphical tool to build GUI interfaces for GTK. Glade saves its files in XML format, which can be used directly with a library called libglade or used to generate the appropriate code. A good starting point for finding out about GTK is the GTK website, at www.gtk.org.

About the Reviewers

Roman Joost is a professional Python software developer and a free software enthusiast, currently living in Australia. Since 2003, he has been contributing to the GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP) by writing documentation and contributing to the source code. He uses testing frameworks and test-driven methodologies extensively, when writing new components for the Z Object Publishing Environment (Zope) in Python.

Manipulating Images

PIL is a set of Python modules that compound an extensive framework written by Fredrik Lundh, from Secret Labs AB. PIL is able to convert and manipulate image files of several different formats (such as GIF, JPEG, and PNG), and provides powerful graphics capabilities. Its framework is cross-platform, which allows it to perform image manipulation and processing in different systems using the same code. PIL also supports some Windows-specific extensions that enable it to display images using the Windows API.
