Primarily a standard Python module reimplementing the SimpleGUI particular module of CodeSkulptor (a browser Python interpreter).

Project Description

It is primarily a standard Python (2 and 3) module reimplementing the SimpleGUI particular module of CodeSkulptor (a browser Python interpreter).

Simply change

import simplegui


    import simplegui
except ImportError:
    import SimpleGUICS2Pygame.simpleguics2pygame as simplegui

in your CodeSkulptor program and your program run both in CodeSkulptor and standard Python with this module (and Pygame).

Online HTML documentation on Read The Docs. (You can also use the online SimpleGUI documentation on CodeSkulptor.) Read Compatibility and Tips sections.


If pip is installed on your platform you can do:

>>> pip install SimpleGUICS2Pygame

(If several Python implementations are installed, maybe you must use something like pip2 or pip3 instead pip command.)

Without pip, download the archive SimpleGUICS2Pygame-?.tar.gz, unzip it somewhere. Next in the somewhere/SimpleGUICS2Pygame-?/ subdirectory run:

>>> python install

In both cases, you must use admin access. So with Linux you will probably do:

>>> sudo [your command]

Module simpleplot require matplotlib (and must be installed separately).

Modules simplegui_lib (and its submodules) and simpleguics2pygame (except for the Timer class) require Pygame (and must be installed separately).

You can run the little script to check if required modules are installed.

On Window$

See Complete installation on Window$ in few steps.

Examples of CodeSkulptor and SimpleGUICS2Pygame use

You can see examples in SimpleGUICS2Pygame/example/ subdirectory from the sources archives.

Note that

  • SimpleGUITk is an other implementation, using Tkinter and some others packages. It is really less complete and not updated. However it works for some programs.
  • simplegui is a Python package which has the same name as SimpleGUI of CodeSkulptor, but it is totally something else.
