	            Innovative User Interfaces Made Easy


Kivy is a Python library for development of multi-touch enabled media rich
applications. The aim is to allow for quick and easy interaction design and
rapid prototyping, while making your code reusable and deployable.

Kivy is written in Python, based on OpenGL and supports different input devices
such as: Mouse, Dual Mouse, TUIO, WiiMote, WM_TOUCH, HIDtouch, Apple's products
and so on.

Kivy is actively being developed by a community and free to use. It operates on
all major platforms (Linux, OSX, Windows, Android).

/!\ The main resource for information is the website:

Installation, Documentation, Examples

Extensive installation instructions as well as tutorials and general
documentation, including an API reference can be found at:

An offline version in PDF format is also available.
Kivy ships with a bunch of examples that can be found in the examples/ folder.
