So sad to hear these words from Kevin, but in the other hand I am really pleased to see (at least) some PythonCArd core code inside another promising UI lib.

Thank you very much Kevin for the hard work and cheers to Mariano, keep moving forward :)

Best regards!

I thought I was going to get back into it, but frankly mobile computing is much more interesting and relevant these days. I don't really use any operating systems except Mac OS X and iOS (where Python doesn't work for app development due to distribution restrictions by Apple AFAIK), so the cross-platform goals for PythonCard would be very difficult for me to work on, let alone test, since I don't use Windows (bye bye MS) or Linux at all anymore.

The startup problem that began this thread is certainly easily fixable. If someone wants to post the fix to the list that would be most welcome.

For developers that are interested in taking over PythonCard, we can have a separate discussion here or on the developer mailing list (https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/pythoncard-devel).
