Now that I have become an intermediate python programmer, I want to learn how to build some GUIs. I am trying to decide between WX and GTK, and was hoping to get input from this list specifically.
GTK seems to have the most active support in matplotlib. Is this true? The amount of demo code for learning pygtk is not as good as for wxPython, for example, I cant figure out how to call a print dialog with gtk. Does one exist?
WX seems to have the most broad support in the Python community. WX seems easier to work with based on the demo code, but once I graduate and make the switch to Linux, it seems a waste to be interfacing GTK through wxPython. WX needs another person to help with maintanence, and I want to help with Matplotlib when I become experienced enough to be of use to the project. But for now, I need to be able to analyze data and finish school.
While undecided on a GUI, I am decided on python and matplotlib, so your input would be valuable. Right now I don't have enough experience to make an intelligent decision.
Thanks in advance,
Darren S. Dale
