Working on expanding the “Create Simple GUI Applications” course I wanted some more example applications to work with — to go beyond what the web browser example can do. So I sat down and wrote a bunch of demo slightly-basic slightly-rubbish apps over a week or so.
There are 15 in total, and I called it “15 minute apps” … the “minute” is small but is intended as a play on words for Jamie’s Olivers “15 Minute Meals”, since neither take 15 minutes to create.
(This isn’t as funny once you have to write it out.)
One of my favourites is Paint — actually “Piecasso” — which features a pie-based image stamper tool. This is a pretty complex app to make in PyQt using a lot of event redirection.
