Good frameworks for Windows/Mac?

0 votes

I need to write a small GUI application that should run on Windows and Mac.

What open-source framework would you recommend? I just need basic widgets (button, listbox, etc.) and would rather a solution that can get me up and running fast.

I know about wxWidgets and Qt: Are there other good options I should know about?

you can build GUIs with tkinter . Easy but not as powerful than PyQt can be. I think it is os agnostic.

I mostly use wxPython myself, but if you just need some basic widgets and not some very complex or non-standard layouts, the tkinter - available in the standard library - might be perfectly viable.
The more recent versions of python also support ttk and Tix which has further possibilities, styling etc.
There is further e.g. Python GUI
and several others

Pyside is also Good. It has a Designer which can be helpful.

Our application has a bunch of help content(user guides) that is scattered and messy. Some is in PDFs, some is written directly in views, some is in table columns, etc.

I'm trying to find a good way to organize and manage it all from within the app, and wanted to ask the community what solutions are already out there.

My goal would be to accomplish the following:
* An easy way for editors to CRUD help content for each page of the app by browsing to that page and using and 'edit help' button.
* An easy way to organize all these pages into a cohesive and comprehensive help document for the entire site. So ideally the help content for each page would fit into a structure of chapters and sub-chapters, and the entire document could be printed as a guide.
* A way to manage tooltips (javascript popups) within this larger help context. So the help editor would also provide for some id reference that i can then pull for tooltip content for a certain widget.
