Hi, I Am a Python NEWBIE

Does anyone have time to plz show me what this kind of Java JFrame + capability looks like in Python?

This will all be for intended use in a game. Is PyGame more suited to this? Why or why not?
What can PyGame do in this situation?

Thanks

class gameWindow extends JFrame implements MouseListener, KeyListener {

  public gameWindow(ClientNetworkEngine CNE, int x, int y) {
            localCNE = CNE;
            setSize...
            setTitle("Game Window");
            ExternalGameLoopThread eglt = new ExternalGameLoopThread(this);
            setLocation(x,y);
            setVisible(true);
            addMouseListener(this);
            addKeyListener(this);
            eglt.start();
            
  }
       public mousePressed(MouseEvent m) {
           System.out.println("mouse pressed at : "+m.getX()+" , "+m.getY());
       }
       public  keyPressed(KeyEvent k ) {
           System.out.println("key pressed : "+k.getChar());
       }

}

I think PyGame looks perfect for my needs.
Do you think it will be decent speed / frame-rate for a fully functioning network RTS?
ie a Blizzard quality RTS. Full screen is a big plus. Will graphics at full screen be clunky?

This means I wont have to be mired in Direct X? Which compared to pygame looks tough.
