Vite Vite for Kivy was conceived as a kind of Bootstrap project for Kivy, the fantastic new Python GUI framework for mobile and desktop. The goal of this project is to create a toolkit of attractive, reusable components that will make Kivy app development faster and easier. At the moment, Vite Vite is confined to Android components, but other platforms may eventually be added.
For convenience, I've already created a build script for Vite Vite on Linux. This script builds an installable apk package from the base Vite Vite app (main.py and its dependencies) and optionally installs the package to your Android device. To use this script, you must first set up the Android SDK and Kivy. Once you have this environment configured, enter the appropriate settings in the
build.cfg file in the root directory. Then run the
build.sh shell script.
The script takes the following optional flags and values:
Pass a configuration FILE other than the default
Takes a BUILD value of either
This flag tells the script to install the finished package to your attached android device using
./build.sh -c myconfig.cfg -b release -a
Builds a release Android package using the settings indicated in myconfig.cfg and installs it to the attached Android device.
