A Django-based way to write desktop applications

Project description


Proton is a Django module for building desktop apps. It provides a management command
to run the project as a desktop application rather than a server, as well as some
basic starter templates for using various stylesheets.
Behind the scenes, this is done by running the server on an arbitrary high port
and opening a thin web browser pointing to localhost on that port.

Quick Start

1. Install dependencies:
Ubuntu: `apt-get install python-gi gir1.2-webkit-3.0 gir1.2-gtk-3.0

2. Add "proton" to your INSTALLED_APPS setting like this::


3. Add the following values to your file:

WINDOW_TITLE = 'Title of window'

WINDOW_SIZE is a tuple containing the default width and height of the window.
WINDOW_MAXIMIZE represents whether the window should be maximized by default.

4. Run `python window` to run the app locally using the dev server.
