  • How to get started developing Python app with Gtk
    4 projects | | 5 Dec 2021
    I suggest you start by reading the Pygobject manual that will give you an overview of how using Python with the bindings. There’s also a tutorial that, even if written for GTK3, will give you the basis for writing an application. I also strongly suggesting looking at the source code of other applications to see how they are written.
