We're back after a server migration that caused effbot.org to fall over a bit harder than expected. Expect some glitches.

Sandbox: The MiniWCK Library (In Progress)

Fredrik Lundh | April 2006

The MiniWCK sandbox contains an experimental minimalist implementation of the Widget Construction Kit programming model, for native Windows.


  • small footprint
  • simple Tkinter-style interface for widget construction (in progress)
  • antialiased rendering via GDI+ and aggdraw (optional).
  • supports non-rectangular windows
  • reads images in BMP, GIF, JPEG, PNG, and TIFF format.

The MiniWCK library is based on code from PIL, IronPIL, WinWCK, and a couple of other libraries and experiments.
