GUI with python and libyui

August 7th, 2008 by

For some days now I’m working on a GUI written in python. I needed X and konsole, so I gave python-yui (python-binding of libyui) a try.
Libyui is the YaST2 User Interface library and python-yui is part of openSUSE 11.0.
If you want to have a quick look you can try my (demo-) widgets.py. It shows some, but not all widgets available. Klaus Kaempf uploaded it to the svn (tnx!).
zypper in python-yui
wget -nd "http://svn.opensuse.org/svn/yast/trunk/libyui-bindings/swig/python/examples/widgets.py"

a) with GTK/QT GUI:
python widget.py

b) with ncurses/konsole GUI:
export DISPLAY2 = $DISPLAY; unset DISPLAY; python widget.py ; export DISPLAY=$DISPLAY2 ; unset DISPLAY2

Have Phun!

  1. Cool work!

  2. libyui goes to the world, great!

    (b) is done more easily as “DISPLAY= python widget.py” or “(unset DISPLAY; python widget.py)”
