Re: Glade vs Hand code

Generally I have found that for data driven applications, GTK as a whole is very painfull to use (this is my opinion based on my first project using GTK as an interface to a control system).

I have found that Glade was an indispensiable tool in making my life easier when putting together this control system. If you want/have to use GTK i would promote the use of Glade along with libglade.

So, an opposite opinion:
simple-minded, static interface => glade is good
complex, dynamic, data-driven => glade is an obstacle
