PySimpleGUI now requires a (paid) license. Opinions?

They can’t. And even if you read the above that way, the attempt
requires you to use their later license.

But I don’t think that’s what this means.

I think it means that if you get the PySimpleGUI 5 code you’re not
allowed to embed that code in some other code to be released under other
terms. Which is fair enough as far as it goes.

As usual: I Am Not A Lawyer.

Thanks for doing this. While PySimpleGUI isn’t fun to look at code-wise, I have a number of quick tools written in it (as well as PySimpleSql), so it’ll be nice to have a 1-to-1 fork to replace it with.

I’ll miss PySimpleGui.

I think the keys to it were responsive maintainers, lots of examples, and easy installation.

I haven’t really seen anything else that worked as easily as it for Python Guis.

The info, etc. was written for people not really programmers, which made it grow and flourish how it did.

Sometimes programmers think too much like programmers.

I have to say that PySimpleGUI is clever, even if you feel it wasn’t beautiful code. And, It’s hard to make a buck writing developer tools.

I was disappointed because I used PySimpleGUI for an embedded system that I wanted to replicate in schools. It was hard enough to get working without requiring the license, now I’m not sure where this use would fall and how I could collaborate with other developers in an open-source fashion.

In my case, though, I’m pretty sure just rewriting in tkinter is the best solution. My GUI was getting more sophisticated and my layouts in pysimplegui were getting to be a bit weird.
