Shadowys

How do I directly display a webpage on the python GUI e.g. in a frame? I heard about (common gateway interface)CGI but I don't know what is that. I'm currently using tkinter.

    I'm only a beginner really, I have PyQt installed and I messed a little bit with QWebView() which seemed to work OK. Seems to be quite a lot of different GUI packages....

    Common Gateway Interface has to do with a program on a webserver executing and outputting a webpage. Except for possibly passing arguments to the webserver, CGI has nothing to do with the client. Displaying a web page in a frame is, well, a web browser.

    I was trying to make a webbrowser but so far tkinter only has webbrowswer controls. Hmm...lemme hope that my line will be better to download other GUI packages...

    The best approach for what you plan to do in my opinion is to use PyQT instead of Tkinter and the WebKit renderering engine. You should find valuable help there : http://www.rkblog.rk.edu.pl/w/p/webkit-pyqt-rendering-web-pages/

    While I was searching for the original source for linking web, it seems that this will have to work. VB has a similar function but the webbrowser is one of a scaled down internet explorer.

    Also, if you are up for it, Google has an excellent tutorial on using the Google App Engine with Python. One of the aspects is using a Webapp framework. I learned a lot when I read it, maybe you will to - here is a link: https://developers.google.com/appengine/docs/python/gettingstarted/usingwebapp
