GTK-server enables access for shellscripts & interpreted programming languages to apps using either GTK 1.x or 2.x.
GTK-server project is a standalone binary, which is able to communicate by a 2-way pipe or by a TCP/UDP port. The script invokes this binary, sets up a pipe or a TCP/UDP connection and prints the GTK call in plain text to the pipe or socket. The GTK-server then sends information back which can be used in the program or script.
Below a summary of advantages when using the GTK-server:
- No need to learn C or C++, you can stick to your favorite programming language
- No need to hack the source of existing programming languages to realize GUI programming
- High flexibility in creating GUI's, e.g. not limited to dialogs
- Full GTK API available, the user can extend the 'gtk-server.cfg' file by himself
- Access to both GTK 1.x and GTK 2.x
- Convenient GTK test tool, easy to learn GTK programming.
