Quickly learn the right way to build attractive and modern graphical user interfaces with Python and Tkinter.

You know some Python. You want to create a user interface for your application. You don’t want to waste time messing around with things you don’t need.

Enter Tkinter.

It’s built right into Python. Everything you need is included in the standard Python distributions. No extra downloads. Your Python and Tkinter scripts will work on Windows, macOS, and Linux.

Tkinter has a simple, clean, Pythonic API. It handles the tedious housekeeping needed in GUI programming. You can focus on what’s unique in your application.

One HUGE Problem

Tkinter has been around for a very long time. There’s a lot of documentation, much of it created years ago. Nearly everything in that documentation still works today.

But it’s all wrong.

Tkinter has a reputation for ugly and outdated user interfaces that don’t fit in with modern systems. And if you follow the old documentation, that’s exactly what you’ll get.

Tkinter has taken a quantum leap forward since all that documentation was written. There are new and better ways to build your user interface. Your program needs to be written differently to take advantage of that.

Modern Tkinter shows you the right way to do it.

You’ll learn all the modern best practices. You’ll build your user interface the right way the first time, without having to learn anything extra or irrelevant. It starts at the beginning, shows you what you need to know, and covers all the essential elements of building your modern user interface. This includes:

  • all the standard GUI widgets
  • attractively laying out your user interface
  • managing menus, windows, and dialogs
  • organizing more complex user interfaces
  • Tkinter’s powerhouse widgets: canvas and text
  • customizing the look of your user interface
  • making it all work on macOS, Windows, and Linux

You may have been using older documentation or are updating a Tkinter program written years ago. If so, you’ll find warnings of what to avoid using, and how to replace it with a modern solution. There’s even a full case study of modernizing the user interface of a seriously out-of-date Tkinter application you may be familiar with.
