My name is Alex Plotnikov. I live in Voronezh obl. Russia where Alex may refer to Aleksei or Aleksandr, me being latter.

I'm in Tcl/Tk realms since 2018.

A fan of the book by Ashok P. Nadkarni. Still my main (perhaps only:) interest in Tcl/Tk is its GUI component.

Book of Tcl by Ashok Nadkarni read here and there


Ramble through the wiki! Ramble here and there getting hints, tips, ideas with its Search really so helpful, much better than simple googling.

My tiny contributions to the wiki caused largely by its coherent ideas are:

Few pages are devoted to my experience I'd like to share with Tcl/Tk community:


aplsimple.github.io became my site after sundowning Mercurial by Bitbucket, hopefully the new site will never be damaged with the sunny acrobatics.

There is also its mirror at chiselapp.com . As for Tcl/Tk sources, my chiselapp.com is more active than github.com .

I'll never stop feeling warm-hearted about Tcl/Tk. Although it is underestimated now, it keeps believing in its future and its sponsors to come.

I hope to write some day an application sort of all people are brothers and sisters however pompous and silly it could sound. Tcl/Tk is good for this sort of applications.

Obviously, now is not the time to think of such type of hope. The hope may seem a sad irony at the best, a rude hypocrisy at the worst.

When being on a ship of fools with her crazy crew led by an Ahab, you don't feel certain even of the near future.

I'll be grateful to anyone who will try and fork/save my repos at github.com or at chiselapp.com as I don't feel certain of their future either.

However, hope is hope.

    The river begins to freeze when the cooler comes
    Her vapours send us a farewell message
    Like saying you'll not see me
    Till the warmer's return
    Till springs
    Till waves
    Till birds
    Till leaves' gay rustle.
