Hello! Welcome to the wxPyWiki, (pronounced wix-pee-wi-kee) a collaborative document evolution system for the wxPython project, implemented using MoinMoin. Anyone can edit content here, you just have to follow TheRules or risk facing the RathOfRobin . To add or edit pages you will need to create an account and/or login, and you will need to be a member of the TrustedEditorsGroup. (Die spammers, die!)
The purpose of the wxPyWiki is to provide documentation, examples, how-tos, etc. for helping people learn, understand and use wxPython. Anything that falls within those guidelines is fair game.
