# Welcome to tk_tools’s documentation!¶

## Introduction¶

The tk_tools package exists in a space like other packages. In many cases, the tkinter interface leaves some API to be desired while, in other cases, it leaves out some room for fairly standard visualizations. This is a collection of widgets and tools that have been developed over the course of creating GUI elements as a means to simplify and enhance the process and results.

There are three categories of widgets:

• groups of widgets that are useful as a group
• visual aids using the canvas
• useful improvements on existing widgets

## Tkinter Setup¶

Each of the code examples assumes a structure similar to the below in order to setup the root environment.:

import tkinter as tk
import tk_tools

root = tk.Tk()

# -----------------------------------
# ----- your GUI widget(s) here -----
# -----------------------------------

root.mainloop()
