PAGE 8.0 Press Release

02 January 2024

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: January 1, 2024 Gregory Walters PAGE GUI Designer for Python

PAGE 8.0 RELEASED ttk Theme support and much more

San Francisco, California: Don Rozenberg, creator of PAGE, today announced version 8.0 of PAGE, a GUI designer for Python. PAGE 8.0 is major enhancement of PAGE 7.6 and offers an enhanced way for Python programmers to design GUI front-ends for their applications.

“This is a re-imaging of the standard drag and drop interface that PAGE has been famous for over the last 15+ years,” says Greg Walters, co-developer. “In earlier versions of PAGE whenever a developer wanted to use any widgets from the ttk Themed widgets, the widgets used the ‘default’ OS theme to visualize their design. While this was helpful, if the developer wanted to use another theme for their GUI after the initial design session, chances were good that they would need to rework it. When this rework was done it was without having the Theme applied to their GUI. Now, the need for rework will be dramatically reduced. This is a major speedup for the developer and makes PAGE a much better RAD (Rapid Application Development tool).”

Features and benefits of PAGE 8.0 include.

• Design with Tcl Theme support
• Comes with 12 Tcl Themes out of the box plus support for the OS themes
• Easily add other third party Themes to PAGE
• PAGE 8.0 comes with many more enhancements as well

PAGE 8.0 will be available starting January 2, 2024, for free and Open Software. For more information on PAGE 8.0 or to download, visit
