 It seems that the pip install command is very particular for
wxPython_Phoenix (which is the name registred in PyPI repo):

   sudo pip install --upgrade --trusted-host --pre -f wxPython_Phoenix

So I really think that I will have to write my own plugin indeed.

I begin to look at the Playpen example, but as a non-dev, I have some
difficulties to undersand very quickly without explanation ^^ So I will not
talk about GUI for youtube-dl in my workshop tomorrow (slides in french are
, but still interested in understanding and create a snapcraft.yaml for
youtube-dl-gui project.


Let's talk about that next week at OSS if you have some times. I'll take
some examples with me and maybe with your explanation it will be more
easily to understand
