Kivy Designer

WARNING: This project is at an unstable alpha stage and is not yet suitable for general use. Also, there is no current plan about developping it further, please let us know if you are interested in contributing to it.

Kivy Designer is Kivy's tool for designing graphical user interfaces (GUIs) from Kivy Widgets. You can compose and customize widgets, and test them. It is completely written in Python using Kivy.

Prerequisites

With the prerequisites installed, you can use the designer:
