I think most people today would use a web front-end to Erlang/Elixir, with events over websockets (cowboy), using WebGL in the browser, with either server-side rendering (Phoenix LiveView) or client-side JS integration (pick your poison).
These ideas were first proposed by ... joearms, of course, way back in 2009.
Because WxErlang is distributed as an OTP application with the current OTP package, it's dependency implications are different. Not necessarily better or worse, just different.
Where was this in 2014 when I wasted two months on doing the most basic WX things?
There was a Python book on Wx back then if I am correct. At least that was what I used when writing a WxPerl program, a few years ago.
