Hi HN !

Months ago I showcased [1] Pyrustic [2], a framework and software suite to help develop, package, and publish Python desktop applications [3].

The framework adds megawidgets like Table and Scrollbox to Tkinter, implements views with lifecycle and more GUI related contributions. But it's not just a framework for the GUI, for example it comes with Gurl for resource fetching with a built-in responses caching system and support for conditional requests, multithreading made easier with even the possibility of retrieving from the main thread the values returned by the functions executed in other threads and also the exceptions raised by these functions, etc.

Pyrustic is not a framework highly specialized in a specific domain, but rather a framework which aims to help build full featured desktop applications (capable of resource fetching, database support, etc.)

Pyrustic is also a lightweight software suite: a command line program to help the developer manage his project, a graphical SQL editor, a graphical test runner, and also a tool to publish the packaged application on Github.

Once the developer has published packaged app on Github, the next challenge is: how to make the download-unpack-install-run-manage-apps process easier for the end user ?

So here I am back to showcase Hubstore [4].

I look forward to reading your comments [5], questions etc. Thanks for your feedback. Genuinely appreciated.
