pyglet Documentation

pyglet is a cross-platform windowing and multimedia library for Python, intended for developing games and other visually rich applications. It supports windowing, user interface event handling, game controllers and joysticks, OpenGL graphics, loading images and videos, and playing sounds and music. pyglet works on Windows, OS X and Linux.

Some of the features of pyglet are:

  • No external dependencies or installation requirements. For most application and game requirements, pyglet needs nothing else besides Python, simplifying distribution and installation.
  • Take advantage of multiple windows and multi-monitor desktops. pyglet allows you to use as many windows as you need, and is fully aware of multi-monitor setups for use with fullscreen games and applications.
  • Load images, sound, music and video in almost any format. pyglet has built-in support for common audio and image formats, and can optionally use ffmpeg to load almost any other compressed audio or video files.
  • pyglet is provided under the BSD open-source license, allowing you to use it for both commercial and other open-source projects with very little restriction.
