PyFLTK Manual
Mike @ 11:54 pm

Seems I’ve been asked to try and write a manual for PyFLTK, the python FLTK bindings. Since this is likely to take a fair amount of time and not produce any pretty screenshots don’t expect too many posts for a while (unless I get distracted from it ;)). I might post the odd update on my progress though. I’m hoping to achieve a couple of pages each day. The current version can be viewed at http://junk.mikeasoft.com/pyfltkmanual.pdf.


  1. Great! Glad to see pyFltk is still getting some attention. Thanks for doing this.

  2. Mike,
    Sadly you seem to have got distracted! Any chance of combinig efforts to get this flying again?

  3. I would love to see this manual completed. I have an fltk tutorial here
    Please feel free to convert any of the examples into the pyfltk manual.
    I think pyfltk is awesome! But, I really feel it needs more documentation. Version 1.1.1 comes with some docs but is still missing these essential chapters.

    Chapter 5 – Drawing Things in pyFLTK
    Chapter 6 – Handling Events
    Chapter 7 – Extending and Adding Widgets


    Appendix A – Class Reference
    Appendix B – Function Reference
    Appendix C – Enumeration Reference

  5. Hi Marco,

    Sorry, I don’t think I ever took this much further than the last PDF uploaded there, you’re welcome to use it as the basis for something more complete though (unfortunately I haven’t been able to track down the old latex source though, so you’d have to just copy straight from the PDF)
