Some experimentation with GTK+ 3.0 / Glade GUIs in Go and Python, particularly for a mobile app UI with multiple screens.


Some features exercised:

  • A single-window app with multiple screens ("About" button slides to the About screen, Menu->Home button transitions back to main screen, etc.)
  • Dynamically added buttons to a Gtk.Box defined in the Glade file. The buttons click into a "Detail" screen updated with the label of the button clicked.
  • Menu->Open builds a dynamic Open File dialog.
  • Menu->New shows a custom New File dialog defined in the Glade file.
