An open-source application development environment for Python/Tkinter
Version / Download
Rapyd-Tk is written entirely in Python and thus should run on any machine that
supports Python. Rapyd-Tk requires Python version 2.6 or
newer. Rapyd-Tk does NOT run on Python 3. It totally amazes us that the Python
developers chose to produce a version that was not upward compatible with all the
existing Python code. Our enthusiasm for going over 25,000 lines of code with a
fine tooth comb is limited.
Rapyd-Tk has been in use for some years now. We use Rapyd-Tk for every
Tkinter based program we write and we get very few complaints from
Rapyd-Tk users so apparently it works reasonably well. It has been used,
without difficulty, to develop a number of serious projects, the largest
we are aware of being a program of over 35,000 lines.
Click on one of the links to download a copy of RapydTk. The links below contain
nearly identical content.
The ".tgz" files contain Linux style LF line endings, while the ".zip" files
contain windows style CRLF line endings.
Once the file is downloaded, uncompress it and check the file README.TXT for
further installation instructions.
If you already have a copy of RapydTk and want to know how the latest version
differs from your version, check out the
version history file.
Note for Mac users!
At one time Rapyd-Tk would conjur up the "lollypop of death" when used
on Mac computers. However a report from a user received in July of 2014
says that Rapyd-Tk works fine on a Mac running Mavericks (OS X 10.9). We
haven't yet tried this personally but if your Mac is running Mavericks
or newer then you are probably good to go with Rapyd-Tk.
