Just a curious Question,
Is there a way of putting Vpython in wxpython as we do in case of wx.MediaCtrl and other stuffs?

Vpython and wxPython each use their own event loops, so it will not be easy and very smooth.

The Open Graphics Library (OGL) is now well integrated with wxPython, but to go from there to something that works like VPython you need lots of work:

import wx
import wx.lib.ogl as ogl

class MyFrame(wx.Frame):
    def __init__(self):
        wx.Frame.__init__( self, None, wx.ID_ANY,
            title="explore wx.lib.ogl", size=(400,300))

        canvas = ogl.ShapeCanvas(self) …

So not possible?
How difficult and effective is pyOpenGL compared to Vpython?
Can anyone give a simple comparison?

Anyone with update on the two frameworks

Any documentation on Open GL in wxPython?

Hav you read the thread?
they are not yet integrated. So I think good candindate to answer this question is Vpython mailing list or wxPython ones. They are both very active lists

I haven't read the thread, where can I find?

where can I find some tutorial, because I don't have any error , but I can't see my graphic.
