Book Description

Python 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 -based applications easily using Python. This third edition of Python 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 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 . 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 , you will learn how to connect to networks, databases, and graphical libraries that greatly enhance the functionality of your . You'll also learn how to use threading to ensure that your doesn't become unresponsive. Toward the end, you'll learn about the versatile PyQt framework, which comes along with its own visual editor that allows you to 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 applications with ease.
