Description Jiri Vagner 2008-10-15 13:55:13 UTC
There are a lot of wrappers for GUI toolkits (wxPython, pyQt, PyGTK, Swing in jython, Tkinter, pyFLTK) inside python
world. And we haven't own python gui designer and Matisse doesn't support python.

It would be cool to have support for external GUI designers, to help programmers invoke gui designer above special xml
file node directly inside Project or Files view.

*.wxg - wxGlade (wxPython)
*.glade - Glade (GTK)
*.ui - Qt Designer (Qt)
*.ui - GUI Builder (Tcl/Tk)

Maybe it could be more generic -> support for external editors. I can imagine something like small list of
"file-extension":"editor" pairs (for example ".ui" : "c:/qt/qtdesigner.exe {FILEPATH}") inside python options and action
"Edit externally" inside popup menu.

I love the idea. Sadly, there are many other things to do first. Closing this for now.

Thanks for your evaluation Julien. Reporter, if you think your issue is still valid and needs to be addressed, don't hesitate to reopen it with additional information. Closing for now.
