Hope you are doing great!

Today, We are going to see how can we create a Alarm clock GUI application with tkinter. Choose the time and choose your favorite melody to start the day with pleasure, and not to oversleep interesting moments.

For this, we need the tkinter module and playsound module.

Playsound is a Pure Python, cross platform, single function module with no dependencies for playing sounds.

Tkinter is the standard GUI library for Python. Python when combined with Tkinter provides a fast and easy way to create GUI applications.

To install tkinter module python, type the below command in your terminal–

pip install tkinter 

To install playsound module python, type the below command in your terminal–

pip install playsound

So, Here is the source code for Alarm clock GUI application with tkinter

from tkinter import *
from tkinter import messagebox
import datetime, time            # just import
from playsound import playsound  # pip install playsound

# change color of button when cursor on it
def button_hover(event):
    confirm["bg"] = "lightblue"

# change color of button when remove cursor from it
def button_hover_leave(event):
    confirm["bg"] = "SystemButtonFace"

# check time with alarm time, and turn ON alarm
def alarm(set_alarm):
    while True:
        current = datetime.datetime.now()

        date = current.strftime("%d.%m.%Y")
        time_atm = current.strftime("%H:%M:%S")

        if time_atm == set_alarm:
        # in my case .mp3 file is in same folder

# recive data from user(spinbox)
def alarm_time():
    h = hour.get()
    m = minutes.get()

    answer = messagebox.showinfo("Set alarm",
        f"Alarm will signal at\n{h}:{m}")

    set_alarm = f"{h}:{m}:00"

if __name__ == "__main__":

    window = Tk()

    choose_time = Label(text="Choose the alarm time")
    choose_time.place(x=20, y=20)
    hour = IntVar()
    Spinbox(width=4, from_=0, to=23, state="readonly", textvariable=hour,
            wrap=True).place(x=200, y=20)

    minutes = IntVar()
    Spinbox(width=4, from_=0, to=59, state="readonly", textvariable=minutes,
            wrap=True).place(x=240, y=20)

    confirm = Button(text="Set alarm", command=alarm_time, width=10, height=3)
    confirm.place(x=160, y=70)
    confirm.bind("<Enter>", button_hover)
    confirm.bind("<Leave>", button_hover_leave)

    exit = Button(text="Quit",width=10, command=window.destroy)
    exit.place(x=20, y=170)

    made_by = Label(text="TECHARGE").place(x = 300, y = 178)
