The wxPython Phoenix project can be used with Python version 2 and version 3. The project applies pretty much the familiar wxPython code. Here we are testing a dragable borderless frame.

''' pwx_drag_frame101.py
experiments with wxPython's Frame styles
create a borderless window that is dragable

for Python3 downloaded project Phoenix latest version
for instance
wxPython_Phoenix-2.9.5.81-r74058-win32-py3.3.tar.gz
from
http://wxpython.org/Phoenix/snapshot-builds/
then simply extracted the wx folder to
C:\Python33\Lib\site-packages

tested with Python27/33 and wx(Phoenix) by  vegaseat  29may2013

hi , I did exactly as you said but I get this error
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<pyshell#0>", line 1, in <module>
import wx
File "c:\python33\lib\site-packages\wx__init__.py", line 17, in <module>
from wx.core import *
File "c:\python33\lib\site-packages\wx\core.py", line 6, in <module>
from ._core import *
ImportError: DLL load failed: The specified module could not be found.
any idea how to fix it

Strange, I don't have
c:\python33\lib\site-packages\wx__init__.py
but I have
c:\python33\lib\site-packages\wx\__init__.py

There is a DLL which you should have ...
c:\python33\lib\site-packages\wx\_core.pyd

I see, DaniWeb screws up \wx\_anything to \wx_anything unless it is in code
