How to create a COVID19 Data Representation GUI?

Prerequisites: Python Requests, Python GUI – tkinter

Sometimes we just want a quick fast tool to really tell whats the current update, we just need a bare minimum of data. Web scrapping deals with taking some data from the web and then processing it and displaying the relevant content in a short and crisp manner.

What the code is doing ?

  • First we are using Tkinter Library to make GUI required for our script
  • We are using requests Library to get the data from the unofficial api
  • Then we are displaying the data we need in this case its Total active cases: and confirmed cases

below is the implementation.





import requests
import json
from tkinter import *
window = Tk()
# creating the Box
# Determining the size of the Box
# Including labels
lbl = Label(window,
            text ="Total active cases:-......")
lbl1 = Label(window,
             text ="Total confirmed cases:-...")
lbl.grid(column = 1, row = 0)
lbl1.grid(column = 1, row = 1)
lbl2 = Label(window, text ="")
lbl2.grid(column = 1, row = 3)
def clicked():
    # Opening the url and loading the
    # json data using json Library 
    url = " / data.json"
    page = requests.get(url)
    data = json.loads(page.text)
    lbl.configure(text ="Total active cases:-"
                  + data["statewise"][0]["active"])
    lbl1.configure(text ="Total Confirmed cases:-"
                   + data["statewise"][0]["confirmed"])
    lbl2.configure(text ="Data refreshed")
btn = Button(window, text ="Refresh", command = clicked)
btn.grid(column = 2, row = 0)
