Easy wxPython wrapper

Project description

ezWxPython

ezWxPython is inspired by the pySimpleGUI project and is a wrapper project that makes it easy to create a wxPython Application. It is built on an event driven approach while pySimpleGUI is based on message driven.

Since the ordered dict used in menubar generation is supported from python 3.6, you have to use with phtyon 3.6+ if you want to use menubar.

Example Application
