Is "Screenlets" actually better than WX ?

firefox
Sure, no one cares about 'screenlets'. It is a 2012 era widget lib and
engine, powered by python2.

The demo which they ship, called "Example" is just utter crap and gives
screenlets a very bad name.

Screenlets already are seen as a lil problematic since they maintain the
"atribute" typo throughout their whole "system", which is kind of sad thing.

Now, if you persist and cut thru all the bull from "Example.py" there is
actually something useful coming out of that.

Can WX withstand the onslaught of the new feeding frenzy surrounding
Screenlets but not WX ?

It is perfectly reasonable to assume that the demise of Screenlets came
from neglect of their demo "Example.py" which did a tremendous
disservice to the whole engine.

Screenlets never recovered from that self-afflicted blow.

Other libs and engines ought to heed the warning that was given by this
incident.

LESSON 1: If you want your engine to succeed, do not ship a crap demo.

Just don't.
