Kivy - A Gestural Toolkit living in GPU ======================================= Website: http://kivy.org/ Kivy is the toolkit derivated from PyMT. About 1.0 alpha --------------- This is alpha, so keep in mind that it might not work as intended at all times. You can post bug reports and feature requests on our Google Project page : http://code.google.com/p/kivy/issues/list If you need more help, you can discuss on mailing list : * Google Group : http://groups.google.com/group/kivy-dev * Email : firstname.lastname@example.org We also have an IRC channel : * Server : irc.freenode.net * Channel : #kivy Introduction ------------ Kivy is a python module for developing multi-touch enabled media rich applications. Currently the aim is to allow for quick and easy interaction design and rapid prototype development. Kivy is written in python, based on OpenGL and supports different input methods like Mouse, Dual Mouse, TUIO, WiiMote, WM_TOUCH, HIDtouch etc. Kivy is actively being developed by a community and free to use. It operates on all major platforms (Linux, OSX, Windows). Installation ------------ Depending on your operating system you can follow one of the following guides to install Kivy and the dependencies: * http://kivy.org/wiki/DevGuide/InstallKivyUbuntu * http://kivy.org/wiki/DevGuide/InstallKivyMacOSX * http://kivy.org/wiki/DevGuide/InstallKivyWindows If you chose to install all the dependencies (see below) yourself, you can invoke the setup script as follows to install kivy systemwide for python: python setup.py install Dependencies ------------ Since we abstract from the libraries that we use, some dependencies are optional and may be used instead of others. A list of dependencies and what we use them for is http://kivy.org/wiki/Devel/FeaturesByLibraries Here is what works best: * python (>= 2.6, < 3.0) - http://python.org * PyOpenGL >= 3.0.1 * Pygame * PIL * GST + PyGST * Cython * nosetests >= 0.11 (for unittest) * coverage >= 0.34 (for coverage) Dcoumentation, Examples & Tutorials ----------------------------------- There is an API reference included in doc. Check the doc/README about how to build the documentation. It's also available online at : http://kivy.org/docs/ There is some simple example apps in the examples folder that should get you started for now. Additionally you may want to take a look at our wiki at : http://kivy.org/wiki/ Other Python/MT resources ------------------------- pymt.eu ^^^^^^^ Experimental toolkit in python for multitouch interaction. Now deprecated in favour of Kivy. movid.org ^^^^^^^^^ Another image tracker we are working on. nuigroup.com ^^^^^^^^^^^^ THE resource and research community for open source multi touch and other natural user interfaces.
