15-minute-apps - 15 minute (small) desktop apps built with PyQt

  •        327

A collection of 15 small — minute — desktop applications written in Python using the PyQt framework. These apps are intended as examples from which you can poke, hack and prod your way to writing your own tools. The apps showcase various parts of the Qt framework, including advanced widgets, multimedia, graphics views and decorationless windows. However, the most generally interesting/feature complete applications are Minesweeper, Solitaire and Paint.

Web2Executable - Uses NW.js to generate "native" apps for already existing web apps.

  •    Python

Thank you all for using Web2Exe over the years! Unfortunately, I don't have the time to maintain this anymore (as you've probably noticed). If anyone wants to take over this repo let me know via email. If you use this and want paid support or you want to pay for further development, you can also contact me via email (which is on my Github profile). Web2Executable is a friendly command line and GUI application that can transform your Nodejs (or any other JS/HTML) app into an executable (and libraries) that can run in a contained, desktop-like style. It can export to Mac OS X, Windows and Linux all from one platform, so no need to go out and buy expensive hardware.

fbs - Electron alternative based on Python and Qt

  •    Python

What makes the situation even worse is that most solutions to the above problems are platform-specific. So you have to create an installer for Mac, one for Windows, etc. In recent years, Electron has seen a lot of interest as a technology for creating cross-platform desktop apps. The problem is, it is very resource intensive and its performance is not good enough for many use cases.

This post shows how to use Electron as the GUI component of Python applications. (Updated version of one of my previous posts.) The frontend and backend communicate with each other using zerorpc. The complete code is on GitHub repo. The following are copied from my original post. They should be the same. If there are inconsistencies, the README.md on the GitHub repo is more accurate.

This is the new, shiny frontend for Cura. Check daid/LegacyCura for the legacy Cura that everyone knows and loves/hates. We re-worked the whole GUI code at Ultimaker, because the old code started to become unmaintainable. For additional support, you could also ask in the #cura channel on FreeNode IRC. For help with development, there is also the #cura-dev channel.

pywebview - A lightweight cross-platform native wrapper around a webview component that allows to display HTML content in its own dedicated window

  •    Python

pywebview is a lightweight cross-platform wrapper around a webview component that allows to display HTML content in its own native GUI window. It gives you power of web technologies in your desktop application, hiding the fact that GUI is browser based. You can use pywebview either with a lightweight web framework like Flask or Bottle or on its own with a two way bridge between Python and DOM. pywebview uses native GUI for creating a web component window: WinForms on Windows, Cocoa on Mac OSX and Qt4/5 or GTK3 on Linux. If you choose to freeze your application, pywebview does not bundle a heavy GUI toolkit or web renderer with it keeping the executable size small. Compatible with both Python 2 and 3. While Android is not supported, you can use the same codebase with solutions like Python for Android for creating an APK.

appjs-deskshell - SDK to build desktop apps using HTML5/CSS/JS for frontend and server script for backend

  •    NSIS

Deskshell is a SDK that provides a shell (as in egg shell) around web applications so that they can run on the desktop. It gives you a modern HTML5 / CSS / JS frontend for your user interface, but then allows full backend functionality written in popular server scripting languages that anyone can pick up like node or php (more choices coming soon). This makes it possible to read and write directly to disk, access databases, communicate with servers and solve the task at hand. We are a very diverse community that welcomes people who have english as a second language. We are open and welcoming to new people both experienced super hackers and newbies alike. We would love this project to be your first accepted commit to an open source project. There are also many things that are not strictly coding that you can do, maybe you can write an example app, improve our documentation, answer questions on the forums or write a tutorial. Mostly just have fun making apps and when you see something that could be better have a go at improving it and then share it with the community.
