Comprehensive documentation can be found at including:


The aim of guizero is to make the process of creating simple GUIs quick, accessible and understandable for new learners.

  • Works with standard Python Tkinter GUI library (and no need to install other libraries)
  • Abstracts away details new learners find difficult to understand (such as Tkinter StringVar() objects)
  • Accessible widget naming system to help new learners to build up a mental model
  • Flexible enough to be used for projects up to A-Level standard, yet accessible to primary school children
  • Comprehensive and accessible documentation with examples
  • Generates helpful additional error messages


Contributions are very welcome - please see for notes, build and deployment instructions.
