Boa works well ...

    Just downloaded and installed Boa Constructor 3.1 and found it to be a nice product.  I used to do a lot of Delphi coding and all looks very familiar.

    I am relatively new to Python, but enjoy it immensely.  I whipped up a little calculator in less than an hour and posted it as a code snippet on DaniWeb.  I combined the App and the Frame code to make it one file for the snippet.

    Now, if we could only get Boa to work with wxPython 2.5 ...

      Did you know about the wxSimpleApp?  In your wxFrame go to Menu Edit/Add Simple App.

      You can use Boa with 2.5, but at the moment you have to get from CVS (tag 0.4.0 pre).

      See you

      I am new to cvs, so could you please tell me how to get this 0.4 ?

        I am on Windows, so I use TortoiseCVS ( which nicely integrates with the explorer.

        - Go to the folder where you want Boa to be, right click without selecting any file/folder.
        - Select CVS Checkout
        - Protocol = Password server
        - Server =
        - Repository Folder = /cvsroot/boa-constructor
        - User Name = anonymous
        - Module = boa
        - On Revison tag
          - Branch or tag = Boa_0-4-0_pre

        If you are on Linux or use another CVS tool the above should still get you going.

        See you

      Werner thanks for the help!

      I downloaded Boa_0-4-0_pre with the help of TortoiseCVS, and got it to work with wxPython 2.5

      Also thank you for the hint on wxSimpleApp, I like to have my relatively small programs all in one file.
