Pyglet has an active developer and user community. If you find a bug, please open an issue.
pyglet runs under Python 2.7, and 3.4+. The entire codebase is fully 2/3 dual compatible, making use of the future module for backwards compatibility with legacy Python. Being written in pure Python, it also works on other Python interpreters such as PyPy. pyglet works on the following operating systems:
- Windows XP or later
- Mac OS X 10.3 or later
- Linux, with the following libraries (most recent distributions will have
these in a default installation):
- OpenGL and GLX
- GDK 2.0+ or PIL (required for loading images other than PNG and BMP)
- OpenAL or Pulseaudio (required for playing audio)
If you're reading this README from a source distribution, you can install pyglet with:
python setup.py install
pyglet is also pip installable from PyPi:
pip install --upgrade pyglet --user
There are no compilation steps during the installation; if you prefer, you can simply add this directory to your PYTHONPATH and use pyglet without installing it. You can also copy pyglet directly into your project folder.
If you want to build the documentation yourself, please check the README file in the doc directory.
pyglet makes use of pytest for it's test suite.
Please check the documentation for more information about running and writing tests.
