[vtkusers] Embed VTK in a GUI

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for your great insight. I’m new to Python and totally get lost in
its public libraries. I guess I can google it, but just want to ask your
opinion. Is it possible to pack a standalone app with Python and PySide so
that I can distribute it to other colleagues?
