PS, I had already (before you commented) gotten PyWebview to work just fine; one downside of that (at least that’s what made me look into FlaskWebGui to begin with), is that I haven’t been able to use something like the Chrome Developer Tools provide. But for now I’ll just implement a flag option to either run my app with FlaskWebGui whilst developing and PyWebview when deploying.

Still, I’m interested to incorporate Tauri and utilize all three (add to that a cross-OS packager that always works) into one easy to use Python module that irons out any build workflow complexities.

Implementing Tauri, is DEFINITELY the right approach in my mind. Also, consider the following:

  • Tauri (which also spawns a client’s native Webview but adds a lot more control) is originally targeted at writing packaged Desktop apps with html, css, JS on the frontend UI, and Rust at the backend
  • Tauri does support (via SideCar, as mentioned) including Python binaries
  • but doing so isn’t currently the main objective of the Tauri team, so it seems; Tauri is currently NOT targeting Python solutions
  • but for Python devs, to code Desktop Apps, the stack html, css, JS for the frontend and Flask for the backend, wrapped in a Tauri package, would be ideal.

In my mind “FlaskWebGui” could be that solution, and it shouldn’t require complex configurations to get going, ideally.
