Kivy Designer

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.

Build Status

Prerequisites

Installation

To install the prerequisites, enter a console (on Windows use kivy.bat in the kivy folder):

pip install -U watchdog pygments docutils jedi gitpython six kivy-garden

or simple run:

pip install -r requirements.txt

To install the FileBrowser, enter a console (on Windows use kivy.bat in the kivy folder):

garden install filebrowser

With the prerequisites installed, you can use the designer:

git clone http://github.com/kivy/kivy-designer/
cd kivy-designer
python main.py

Without git, download, extract and execute main.py:

https://github.com/kivy/kivy-designer/archive/master.zip

On OS X you might need to use the kivy command instead of python if you are using our portable package.

If you're successful, you'll see something like this:
