Today I learned: building an application's GUI using Glade

I've wrote a lot of Python's scripts for many task, such like web scraping or Telegram cool things. But until this week I never designed a non-web-based UI. I started using Glade and Gtk.

Just drag and drop some widgets into a GtkApplicationWindow, save it into your project's folder and load it.

    import gi
    gi.require_version('Gtk', '3.0')

    from gi.repository import Gtk

    class ButtonHander():
        # button action's code here!

    builder = Gtk.Builder()

    window = builder.get_object("mainWindow")

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Because GUIs are cool!

I use glade for my gui tools all the time. It‘s a real time saver. :)

Thanks for sharing! Glade looks pretty similar to which is for Python.
