As your GUI code increases in complexity, you want to separate the GUI components from the business logic, separating them out into different modules. This is what we'll do in this video.
- [Instructor] In the previous video,…we've started to use queues.…This video will talk about passing queues…among different modules.…In this video, we will pass instances of a queue…from our main GUI thread to other Python modules,…which will enable us to write the ScrolledText widget…from another module while keeping our GUI responsive.…In this video, we will pass queues…around different modules.…As our GUI code increases in complexity,…we want to separate the GUI components…from the business logic.…
Separating them out into different modules.…Modularization gives us code reuse, and also,…makes the code more readable.…Once the data to be displayed in our GUI…comes from different data sources,…we will face latency issues, which is what queues solve.…By passing instances of queues…among different Python modules,…we're separating the different concerns…of the modules functionalities.…The GUI code ideally would only be concerned…with creating and displaying widgets.…
The business logic's modules job is…to only to the business logic.…
