A simple script for periodically changing windows desktop wallpaper written in Python 3.5
It took me 2 days to bring it to "completion".
The UI was very difficult to write, especially with multithreading.
The primary reason I chose python instead of say, C#, was the easy availability and ease of use of libraries such as Requests, BeautifulSoup and the like; and while the core functional part of the program was completed relatively quickly, actually polishing the program further, I found, was very tough in python.
Needless to say, there's a lot of stuff that could be improved on but I don't think I will be continuing this project with python any more. I found it very cumbersome to say the least.

Anyway, here is the UI of the program:
The actual script is available here
Installing Anaconda with Python >= 3.5 is recommended since that's what it was written under.
