Find out how to create visually stunning and feature-rich applications by empowering Python's built-in Tkinter GUI toolkitAbout This Book
This book will appeal to developers and programmers who would like to build GUI-based applications. Knowledge of Python is a prerequisite.What You Will Learn
Tkinter is a lightweight, portable, and easy-to-use graphical toolkit available in the Python Standard Library, widely used to build Python GUIs due to its simplicity and availability. This book teaches you to design and build graphical user interfaces that are functional, appealing, and user-friendly using the powerful combination of Python and Tkinter.
After being introduced to Tkinter, you will be guided step-by-step through the application development process. Over the course of the book, your application will evolve from a simple data-entry form to a complex data management and visualization tool while maintaining a clean and robust design. In addition to building the GUI, you'll learn how to connect to external databases and network resources, test your code to avoid errors, and maximize performance using asynchronous programming. You'll make the most of Tkinter's cross-platform availability by learning how to maintain compatibility, mimic platform-native look and feel, and build executables for deployment across popular computing platforms.
By the end of this book, you will have the skills and confidence to design and build powerful high-end GUI applications to solve real-world problems.Style and approach
This is a comprehensive guide that explores the essential Tkinter features and modules and implements them in building real-world cross-platform GUI applications
