Glade Interface Designer

Glade is a free visual programming environment (Rapid Application Development RAD) for creating intuitive GTK user interface ( GUI). Glade is independent of the programming language used. It does not generate executable code for events but an XML file and - if desired - one or more C files in which the programmer uses its program code. Glade is available in two versions - one for GTK 2 and one for version 3, it is subject to the terms of the GNU General Public License.
