traitsui: traits-capable user interfaces

Project Description
TraitsUI: Traits-capable windowing framework

The TraitsUI project contains a toolkit-independent GUI abstraction layer,
which is used to support the "visualization" features of the
`Traits <>`_ package.
Thus, you can write model in terms of the Traits API and specify a GUI
in terms of the primitives supplied by TraitsUI (views, items, editors,
etc.), and let TraitsUI and your selected toolkit and back-end take care of
the details of displaying them.

The following GUI backends are supported:

- wxPython
- PyQt
- PySide

**Warning:** In TraitsUI version 5.0 the default GUI backend will change from
``wx`` to ``qt4``.


Given a Traits model like the following::

from traits.api import HasTraits, Str, Range, Enum

class Person(HasTraits):

name = Str('Jane Doe')

age = Range(low=0)

gender = Enum('female', 'male')

person = Person(age=30)

we can use TraitsUI to specify a and display a GUI view::

from traitsui.api import Item, RangeEditor, View

person_view = View(
Item('age', editor=RangeEditor(mode='spinner')),
buttons=['OK', 'Cancel'],


which creates a GUI which looks like this:

If you want to run traitsui, you must also install:

* `traits <>`_
* `pyface <>`_
