PyQt4 vs 5 sounds still pretty complicated since my experience. Also licensing is too restricted.

Cross-Platform C++ GUI Programming with wxWidgets book

Cross-Platform C++ GUI Programming with wxWidgets book

You may want to check this out which could help

http://www.amazon.com/Cross-Platform-Programming-wxWidgets-Julian-Smart/dp/0131473816?ie=UTF8&keywords=0131473816&qid=1465312204&ref_=sr_1_1&s=books&sr=1-1

It looks like this frameworks includes all C++ functionality ranging from sockets, network, thread, dynamic class loading, etc. There is a lot more here than originally thought but this should be ok for lower frequency trading systems. If you want HFT level, this is not the framework for you.

Overall view of Python for GUI front end design

Overall view of Python for GUI front end design

Ok. I have gone through the various options for front end web design not related to Windows or Microsoft. I have put a survey out to help decide on the final choice (this is like marriage so I need to make the right choice) . Here is my view on using Python which could be adequate but I don’t think you can quickly port the code to a web fron which is something I would like to include as a requirement. 

Tkinter and Pyside with this book

https://www.packtpub.com/application-development/pyside-gui-application-development-second-edition

Do I really need to hand code this stuff? When you got good rapid code generation with tools like Visual Studio or even Qt (if it works as advertised), is there really a need to go through this process? I am not interested in this path as it is now 2016, not 1980.

Participate in my important survey as indicated here

https://quantlabs.net/blog/2016/05/option-for-front-end-hft-trading-design-what-would-you-do-it-in/

Remember the original vision was to use QtDesigner which was part of Qt 4 which it has been folded into version. So we are back at looking at C++ with Qt instead.
