Tkinter GUI Application Development Blueprints – Second Edition: Build real-world high-performance applications by using Python 3.7

Geometry Management, Event Handling, and more Key FeaturesA Practical, guide to learn the application of Python and GUI programming with tkinterCreate multiple cross-platform real-world projects by integrating host of third party libraries and toolsLearn to build beautiful and highly interactive user interfaces, targeting multiple devices.Book DescriptionTkinter is the built-in GUI package that comes with standard Python distributions. It is a cross-platform package, which means you build once and deploy everywhere. It is simple to use and intuitive in nature, making it suitable for programmers and non-programmers alike.This book will help you master the art of GUI programming. It delivers the bigger picture of GUI programming by building real-world, productive, and fun applications such as a text editor, drum machine, game of chess, audio player, drawing application, piano tutor, chat application, screen saver, port scanner, and much more. In every project, you will build on the skills acquired in the previous project and gain more expertise. You will learn to write multithreaded programs, network programs, database-driven programs, asyncio based programming and more. You will also get to know the modern best practices involved in writing GUI apps.With its rich source of sample code, you can build upon the knowledge gained with this book and use it in your own projects in the discipline of your choice.What you will learnGet to know the basic concepts of GUI programming, such as Tkinter top-level widgets, geometry management, event handling, using callbacks, custom styling, and dialogsCreate apps that can be scaled in size or complexity without breaking down the coreWrite your own GUI framework for maximum code reuseBuild apps using both procedural and OOP styles, understanding the strengths and limitations of both stylesLearn to structure and build large GUI applications based on Model-View-Controller (MVC) architectureBuild multithreaded and database-driven appsCreate apps that leverage resources from the networkImplement mathematical concepts using Tkinter CanvasDevelop apps that can persist application data with object serialization and tools such as configparserWho This Book Is ForThis book is for beginner to intermediate level Pythonists who want to build modern cross-platform GUI applications with the amazingly powerful Tkinter. A prior knowledge of Tkinter is required.About the AuthorBhaskar Chaudhary is a professional programmer and information architect.
