Modern Tkinter for Busy Python Developers Books by Mark Roseman

Modern Tkinter for Busy Python Developers
Quickly learn to create great looking user interfaces for Windows, Mac and Linux using Python's standard GUI toolkit

You'll learn all the modern best practices. You'll build your user interface the right way the first time, without having to learn anything extra or irrelevant. It starts at the beginning, shows you what you need to know, and covers all the essential elements of building your modern user interface. This includes:

  • all the standard GUI widgets
  • attractively laying out your user interface
  • managing menus, windows, and standard dialogs
  • organizing more complex user interfaces
  • Tkinter's powerhouse widgets: canvas and text
  • customizing the look of your user interface
  • making it all work on Mac, Windows, and Linux
You may have been using older documentation, or are trying to update a Tkinter program written years ago. If so, you'll find warnings of what to avoid using, and how to replace it with a modern solution. There's even a full case study of modernizing the user interface of a seriously out-of-date Tkinter application you may be familiar with.

Who this book is for

This book is for everyday Python programmers looking to quickly create desktop user interfaces. You may be new to Tkinter, or want to bring your knowledge up to date. You don't need to be an expert on OOP, MVC architecture, multithreading or any other advanced topics. In fact, you're not going to see any of those things in this book.

This book uses Python 3.7, but everything you learn will apply (with small tweaks) to any Python 3.x version. It won't help you if you're using Python 2.x.

Let veteran software developer Mark Roseman show you the right way to build user interfaces with Python and Tkinter. He's been using and Tk (the technology behind Tkinter) since its early days and has shipped dozens of open source tools and commercial applications based on it.

He's also the author of the multi-lingual TkDocs.com website, the de facto reference for building modern Tk user interfaces. This book brings together Python-specific information from that site and supports its further development.
