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 2.1.3 or
Be aware that Rapyd is relatively new and there are likely to be issues
that need resolution before it settles down to long term stability. That
said, it has been remarkably problem-free for a new software product of
this magnitude. It has been used, without difficulty, to develop a
number of serious projects, the largest we are aware of being a program
of over 4000 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! Rapyd-Tk works fine under Linux and Windows but, for unknown reasons, conjures up the "lollypop of death" when
used on Apple Macintosh computers. By the time the lollypop appears the process is dead which makes it
difficult find the problem. If any Mac users out there have the expertise and the inclination to look into
this problem we would appreciate hearing about it.
