Python UI Frameworks with Screenshots

Python has a good ecosystem with a number of UI frameworks available. Here I am listing some of the popular UI frameworks available for Python along with their tutorial/getting started examples, which would be helpful for you to compare and choose one for your need.

Web Based Python UI Frameworks


Built on top of Plotly.js, React and Flask, Dash ties modern UI elements like drop downs, sliders, and graphs directly to your analytical Python code.

Remi is a GUI library for Python applications that gets rendered in web browsers. This allows you to access your interface locally and remotely. There is also a drag n drop GUI Editor.
REMI - Platform Independent Python GUI LibraryREMI GUI Editor allows you easily create GUIs using drag and drop.

Flexx is a pure Python toolkit for creating graphical user interfaces (GUI’s), that uses web technology for its rendering. Apps are written purely in Python; The PScript transpiler generates the necessary JavaScript on the fly.
Flexx Interactive UI Example
You can use Flexx to create (cross platform) desktop applications, web applications, and export an app to a standalone HTML document.

pywebview can be used for building GUIs for your Python program using HTML, CSS and Javascript. It is a lightweight cross-platform wrapper around a webview component that allows to display HTML content in its own native GUI window. You can use pywebview with a lightweight web framework like Flask or Bottle.
PyWebView Example UI
pywebview uses native GUI for creating a web component window: WinForms on Windows, Cocoa on macOS and QT or GTK on Linux. If you choose to freeze your application, pywebview does not bundle a heavy GUI toolkit or web renderer with it keeping the executable size small. pywebview is compatible with Python 3.

Transforms the tkinter, Qt, WxPython, and Remi (browser-based) GUI frameworks into a simpler interface. The window definition is simplified by using Python core data types understood by beginners (lists and dictionaries).
Your PySimpleGUI code is simpler and shorter than writing directly using the underlying framework because PySimpleGUI implements much of the “boilerplate code” for you. Additionally, interfaces are simplified to require as little code as possible to get the desired result. Depending on the program and framework used, a PySimpleGUI program may require 1/2 to 1/10th amount of code to create an identical window using one of the frameworks directly.
