So i'm creating this thing in tkinter called BananaOS. It has some apps and i was wondering if anyone else would like to help with it?

Check out my project workspace-ux.codinuser.repl.co
It uses a similar concept by an os_in_a_window

You can look at it for an idea and some concepts

The basic idea is very simple

create a main frame and add the homescreen widgets
create a taskbar or menubars for the controls
create buttons to launch the apps in the taskbar
create Tkinter frames that hold an app, but they will need a title bar design if you want them to be good

For a simple clock you can use time.strftime and Tkinter labels
I will recommend first having a basic understanding of Tkinter

And i can help, if you need, where do you need help?
