I've been using wxGlade to build two different GUI's and doesn't seem to be available on Gentoo anymore.
Does anyone know if that is perm cause also doesn't seem to be avail with pip.
Could install local if need, but prefer package handler to do it.

Thanks

Not familiar with it but I believe the issue is that there was no one actively looking after it and version bumping :(

It was dropped as part of python2 cleanup but sounds like newer versions support 3 just fine, 0.9.5+ notably claims to support python3.8 in release notes.

If you need the python2.7 version, that's definitely done for though.
Edit: If opened a bug about re-adding it with py3 (preferably with an ebuild attached), the Gentoo wxWidgets Project "might" pick it back up.. albeit it does look understaffed with only 1 member.

Added bug to see about getting it readmitted to portage.

Well, doesn't look like this is going to get done anytime soon. So will provide a little update from my end.

Currently running as main Python 3.6.12, but have 3.7.9 & 3.8.5 install as needed. Decided to check out wxGlade at sourceforge. Looked like it can be ran local from users home folder. That is indeed the case!

Put in my home folder and runs perfectly under Python 3.6.12. Haven't tried the others yet, but at least I can now modify my two GUI's if need to now.

So unless you need it system-wide you can install it by just running it from home folder as user.
