Aidil Saputra Kirsan, Kosuke Takano, Sallie Trixie Zebada Mansurina


This study introduces EksPy Python framework, a novel framework designed for developing graphical user interface (GUI) applications in Python. EksPy framework is built on PyQt5, which is a collection of Python bindings for the Qt libraries, and it provides a user-friendly and intuitive interface. The comparative analysis of EksPy framework with existing frameworks such as Tkinter and PyQt highlights its notable features, including ease of use, rapid development, enhanced performance, effective database management, and the model-view-controller (MVC) concept. The experimental results illustrate that EksPy framework requires less code and enhances code readability, thereby facilitating better understanding and efficient development. Additionally, EksPy framework offers a modern and customizable appearance, surpassing Tkinter’s capabilities. Furthermore, it incorporates a built-in object-relational mapping (ORM) feature to simplify database interactions and adheres to the MVC architectural pattern. In conclusion, EksPy Python framework emerges as a powerful, user-friendly, and efficient framework for GUI application development in Python.
