Python GUI Programming Cookbook: Develop functional and responsive user interfaces with tkinter and PyQt5, 3rd Edition Burkhard Meier Author

Over 90 recipes to help you develop widgets, forms, layouts, charts, and much more using the latest features of Python 3Key FeaturesUse object-oriented programming to develop impressive GUIs in PythonCreate interesting charts to visually represent data using MatplotlibDevelop GUIs with the latest versions of tkinter, PyQt5, and wxPython frameworksBook DescriptionPython is a multi-domain, interpreted programming language that is easy to learn and implement. With its ptionPython is a multi-domain, interpreted programming language that is easy to learn and implement. With its wide support for frameworks to develop GUIs, you can build interactive and beautiful GUI-based applications easily using Python. This third edition of Python GUI Programming Cookbook follows a task-based approach to help you create effective GUIs with the smallest amount of code. Every recipe in this book builds upon the last to create an entire, real-life GUI application. These recipes also help you solve problems that you might encounter while developing GUIs. This book mainly focuses on using Python’s built-in tkinter GUI framework. You'll learn how to create GUIs in Python using simple programming styles and object-oriented programming (OOP). As you add more widgets and expand your GUI, you will learn how to connect to networks, databases, and graphical libraries that greatly enhance the functionality of your GUI. You’ll also learn how to use threading to ensure that your GUI doesn't become unresponsive. Toward the end, you’ll learn about the versatile PyQt GUI framework, which comes along with its own visual editor that allows you to design GUIs using drag and drop features. By the end of the book, you’ll be an expert in designing Python GUIs and be able to develop a variety of GUI applications with ease.What you will learnCreate amazing GUIs with Python's built-in tkinter moduleCustomize GUIs using layout managers to arrange GUI widgetsAdvance from the typical waterfall coding style to an OOP style using PythonDevelop beautiful charts using the free Matplotlib Python moduleUse threading in a networked environment to make GUIs responsiveDiscover ways to connect GUIs to a MySQL databaseUnderstand how unit tests can be created and internationalize GUIDelve into the world of GUI creation using PyQt5Who this book is forIf you’re a programmer or developer looking to enhance your Python skills by writing powerful GUI applications, this book is for you.
