wxglade {-g LANG | --generate-code LANG} [-o DESTINATION | --output DESTINATION] FILENAME.wxg



wxGlade is a GUI designer written in Python with the popular GUI toolkit wxPython, that helps you create wxWidgets/wxPython user interfaces. At the moment it can generate Python, Lisp, C++ and XRC (wxWidgets' XML resources) code.


These programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below. For a complete description, see the Info files.

-g or --generate-code LANG

If you only want to generate the code without starting the GUI, use the -g or --generate-code option with the language as argument

Possible values for LANG are "python", "lisp", "XRC", "perl" or "C++".

-o or --output DESTINATION

You can specify the destination of the generated code with -o or --output option.

The DESTINATION argument can be a file or a directory. It is a file when the FILENAME.wxg generates single-file source code. It is a directory when the FILENAME.wxg generates multiple-file source code.

-h or --help

Show the help message and exit


Show programs version number and exit


Generate Python code out of myapp.wxg:

wxglade -o /tmp -g python myapp.wxg

Open file myapp.wxg in wxGlade GUI:

wxglade myapp.wxg
