Subject description: Development library
 

I will start developing my contributions for puppy that require User Inteface using tcl/gnocl.

Reasons why I discarded other toolkits
- gtkdialog is OK for small UIs but a pain for complex UIs
- xmessage/XDialog are great for small scripts too, but difficult to keep the flow in complex user interactions
- I evaluated different tcl toolkits such as tk, tix and tile, all of them impresivelly functional and greately portable but... old looking, don't follow themes set for other applications, and sometimes too convoluted (e.g. tile) and all of them are way larger than gnocl

Reasons for gnocl
- Native GTK. That means that it will follow the gtk themes for widgets and icons.
- Well documented.
- Easy to learn toolkit


Here are some samples to show of how tcl/gnocl applications are native GTK

First new NW wizard mockup

And the first real application out of the door will be a new Sound mixer (volume mixer).
Here shown with an XAqua GTK theme


The second one New Remote Desktop Client

If you want to see an example of gnocl code, I recomend having a look at this code.
