pyface: traits-capable windowing framework

The pyface project contains a toolkit-independent GUI abstraction layer, which is used to support the "visualization" features of the Traits package. Thus, you can write code in terms of the Traits API (views, items, editors, etc.), and let pyface and your selected toolkit and back-end take care of the details of displaying them.

The following GUI backends are supported:

  • wxPython
  • PyQt
  • PySide

Warning: In Pyface version 5.0 the default GUI backend will change from wx to qt4.



Pyface depends on:

  • a GUI toolkit: one of PySide, PyQt or WxPython
  • Traits
  • Pygments for syntax highlighting in the Qt code editor widget.
  • some widgets may have additional optional dependencies. For example, the IPython shell widgets require IPython to be installed.
