A friend of mine said that python could be used to make simple GUIs (ie. a couple of buttons and a text box). I googled "python gui" and it looks like there are 30934 libraries to make GUIs. Is there a "standard" or "built in" one?



The "built in" module would be Tkinter, but if you're looking for something simple that will generate native-looking GUIs with minimal effort I would suggest wxPython.

There's a wealth of tutorials and sample code in this forum that you are welcome to use (refer to the sticky wxPython samples thread on the first page).
