Add Drag and Drop Section to Python GTK+ 3 Tutorial GNOME Project
Status: Closed Time to complete: 120 hrs Mentors: Sebastian Pölsterl Tags: Git, Sphinx, Python, English, Gtk+, PyGObject
  • The Python GTK+ 3 Tutorial is currently missing a section that explains drag and drop. The task includes describing the most important classes and methods used to add drag and drop support to an application. In addition, a short example application that demonstrates the usage of the aforementioned classes and methods should be added. Unfortunately, currently no Python GTK+ 3 reference manual exists, but it is relativity easy to derive the API from the C reference manual. Helpful resources are the GTK+ 3 reference manual and gtkmm3 tutorial.
  • Expected results: A new page in reStructuredText format
  • Requirements: Sphinx, Git, PyGObject, Python, English

Sebastian Pölsterl on November 21 2011 17:30 UTC Getting started

Get started by installing sphinx (most distributions have a package for it) and checkout the project at You can add a new section by creating a new .txt file in the source directory and adding it to index.txt. After that you should read the relevant parts of the GTK+ 3 reference manual.
