This sample plots points using the hopalong algorithm by Barry Martin presented in the September 1986 Scientific American.
This is about as basic as you can make your application. For those of us who like to 're-use' code this is a good base to build on. Add items one by one to this minimal PythonCard app to make it easier to understand what is going on.
This application implements the proof of concept statement of requirements as specified here. It is pretty basic but it does show all of the different widget types you can use. This example also demonstrates the use of an image as a canvas background.
The samples launcher provides a convenient way to try each sample, browse the readme, source code and layout description for each sample.
This sample demonstrates just how easy it is to develop quite useful applications using the PythonCard framework. To use this application, just enter a search string in the first text item, select where you would like to perform the search from the 'Sites' list and then press the 'Search' button. As you perform searches they are saved in the 'Past Searches' list, a bit like web page URLs in your browser. To re-run a search select it from the list and press the 'Search' button.
Another really simple but powerful application is this example which will play a sound file.
SourceForgeTracker downloads XML from SourceForge in order to display Bug Reports and Feature Requests for a variety of Python SF projects.
A basic text editor.
Dan Winkler's original PythonCard test converted from tkinter to PythonCard.
TextRouter is a generic weblogging and text "routing" client. It's main use is for posting to Blogger and/or Manila maintained weblogs. More screen shots are available at http://simon.kittle.info/stories/storyReader$116. Simon Kittle maintains a page for TextRouter that includes a standalone binary installer for Windows.
Noughts and Crosses (tictactoe)
When I was young we used to call this game noughts and crosses. Some of you may know it as Tic Tac Toe. The best way to see what this sample application does is to run it. If anyone would like to write a more advanced algorithm for the computer player then please go ahead. When you have finished you can post it to the mailing list.
This sample application is designed to demonstrate some of the events that are associated with particular widgets. The buttons and check boxes on the right hand side of the screen are active and have code associated with them. Again, the best way to find out what the various controls do is to try them out.
Last, but certainly not least, is the world clock. A rather natty application that shows you where in the world currently has daylight and where is dark. You will need to be connected to the internet for this to function properly as the different map images are downloaded from http://www.time.gov/. Can you tell when this screen shot was taken?
The next page of screenshots are here.
