the simplest GUI builder (tk/gtk), for RAD scripts.

Grun is a python module helper to help you to build out some simple gtk apps, by providing nice things to improve your scripts with GUI "bling bling". It's clearly the easiest way to put some GUI things in your scripts/commands. It's a kind of gui framework. It provides :

  • An easy way to turn your methods into GUI winforms, in one line of code.
  • some simple dialogs (messagebox/prompt/progressbar)
  • a pynotify wrapper
  • a iconapp/tray backend to let your application stay in tray
  • a popup generator
  • a simple config backend to store configs in a xdg way
  • a simple clipboard getter/setter (text only!)
