A prototype implementation of Gtk+ composite widget templates for PyGI. This library will allow you to declare a composite widget, and mark particular properties as widgets or methods as signals that are declared in a GtkBuilder XML file created with glade. Usage of this functionality reduces the amount of boilerplate required to create a composite widget when using Python/GTK3
This implementation was developed for the Exaile audio player to help us as we move to GTK3. I'm still feeling this out to see what bugs come up, so please provide feedback!
There is a bug open at GTK's bugzilla to get composite widget templates implemented in PyGI (it's been open for awhile, I created this implementation before I realized it existed).
Ideally, this will get integrated into PyGI itself and will no longer be necessary. Until then, if you find a bug, please report it or submit a pull request on github!
- Currently only tested on Linux, GTK 3.14, and Python 2.7.
- Composite templates requires GTK 3.10 or greater
- PyGObject 3.13.2 or greater
This project is easily installed via pip:
pip install pygi-composite-templates
See examples on the github repo for simple yet complete examples. There are two examples, one using a ui file embedded in a GResource, and the other using local file paths.
