Sugar syntax for Tk
Tk is a great graphical toolkit to write desktop applications. However, one can get bothered with the constant typing of quotes and options. TkSugar provides handy subs for common options used when programming Tk.
Benefits are obvious
- Reduced typing The constant need to type => and ‘’ is fine for one-off cases, but the instant you start using Tk it starts to get annoying.
- More compact statements Reduces much of the redundant typing in most cases, which makes your life easier, and makes it take up less visual space, which makes it faster to read.
- No string worries Strings are often problematic, since they aren’t checked at compile-time. Sometimes it makes spotting an error a difficult task. Using this alleviates that worry.
