Tkinter is a beginner-friendly GUI toolkit for Python and can be used to create cross platform apps. It features a widget system that allows you to easily add elements to your application using a simple line of commands. In this video, John Elder of Codemy will teach us how to create a simple text editor using the Tkinter in Python. Although this project sounds complicated, it is surprisingly easy and fun to work with.
