One of the most overlooked packages from The Python Standard Library is tkinter and it's child ttk. Tkinter allows us to build graphic user interfaces without adding external dependencies, and with a bit of care, it allows for a good user experience. While learning Python programming, I have been exploring tkinter/ttk as a tool for building user-friendly graphical interfaces. I would like to share that experience and some of the insights that have arisen during that process. Tkinter may not be able to replace a native GUI toolkit, but can certainly be an important addition to any developers toolbox, both for personal use or for bridging our code to less technical users.
