Toga

Toga

1. Python native, OS native, cross platform GUI toolkit.

2. Linux

3. OS X

4. Windows (crappy)

5. iOS (crappier)

6. Android (the crappiest)

Architecture

Native widgets

Example

import toga

def button_handler(widget):
    toga.Dialog.info('Yay!', 'You have clicked the button')

def startup(app):
    container = toga.Container()

    button = toga.Button('Hello world', on_press=button_handler)
    container.add(button)


if __name__ == '__main__':
    app = toga.App('First App', 'org.python.meetup.toga')
    app.main_loop()

Example #2

container = toga.OptionContainer()

left_table = toga.Table(['Hello', 'World'])
left_table.insert(None, 'root1', 'value1')
left_table.insert(None, 'root2', 'value2')
left_table.insert(None, 'root3', 'value3')
left_table.insert(1, 'root4', 'value4')

left_tree = toga.Tree(['Navigate'])
left_tree.insert(None, None, 'root1')
root2 = left_tree.insert(None, None, 'root2')
left_tree.insert(root2, None, 'root2.1')
root2_2 = left_tree.insert(root2, None, 'root2.2')

left_tree.insert(root2_2, None, 'root2.2.1')
left_tree.insert(root2_2, None, 'root2.2.2')
left_tree.insert(root2_2, None, 'root2.2.3')

container.add('Table', left_table)
container.add('Tree', left_tree)

Looks good?

The big "but"

1. No threads

2. No widgets

3. No customization

4. Almost nothing

What's the point?

1. Simple

2. Well designed (so far)

3. No extra credit

4. Made by one person

5. Worth mention

Beeware

1. Cricket

2. BugJar

3. Duvet

4. rubicon

etc...

In conclusion

1. There is always a small nice library

2. Someone does these libraries

3. Why won't you?

4. Get off the bench!
