wxPython in XSI

You’ll find here some nice discoveries I made trying to use wxPython inside XSI. For that I will assume that you, dear Reader, have some knowledge of Python and UIs…

Animal Logic is also kindly giving you an example XSI Plugin that should be a good starting point if you want to implement a wxPython interface in XSI.

I apologize in advance for the technical and boring stuff ahead… it’s the unfortunate price to pay to get nice and shiny UIs!
