# Interfaces Utilisateur Graphiques avec Tk¶

Tk/Tcl fait depuis longtemps partie intégrante de Python. Il fournit un jeu d'outils robustes et indépendants de la plateforme pour gérer des fenêtres. Disponible aux développeurs via le paquet tkinter et ses extensions, les modules tkinter.tix et tkinter.ttk.

The tkinter package is a thin object-oriented layer on top of Tcl/Tk. To use tkinter, you don't need to write Tcl code, but you will need to consult the Tk documentation, and occasionally the Tcl documentation. tkinter is a set of wrappers that implement the Tk widgets as Python classes.

tkinter's chief virtues are that it is fast, and that it usually comes bundled with Python. Although its standard documentation is weak, good material is available, which includes: references, tutorials, a book and others. tkinter is also famous for having an outdated look and feel, which has been vastly improved in Tk 8.5. Nevertheless, there are many other GUI libraries that you could be interested in. The Python wiki lists several alternative GUI frameworks and tools.
