Imports in wxpython

+1 vote
27 views

I'm playing with some code that uses the wxpython grid. Every example I have seen starts with the imports:-

 import wx
 import wx.grid as Gridlib

As Gridlib is exactly the same number of characters as wx.grid I really don't see the point. Am I missing something?

You're not missing anything. I've actually never seen that before (or at least never noticed). The first hit when searching "import wx.grid" is http://wxpython.org/Phoenix/docs/html/grid_overview.html which doesn't use the "as" (but I see some hits farther down that do).

Probably the author of that code was just trying to save a dict lookup every time "wx.grid" is referenced (which has to look up "wx" in the globals and then "grid" as an attribute). Seems like an unnecessary micro-optimization to me.

I upgraded to ActivePython 2.7.2.5, and would like to get started learning about Qt and wxWidgets in Python.

I have a couple of question:

  1. Are there obvious reasons to choose either QT/PyQt or wxWidgets/wxPython? I have the impression that Qt is a richer GUI than wxWidgets, but it could just be an impression.

  2. Is there a no-brainer article that explains how to add Qt and wxWidgets to ActivePython community edition, since they're only included in the Business and Enterprise editions?
