Python bindings for the amazing dear imgui C++ library - a Bloat-free Immediate Mode Graphical User Interface.
pyimgui is available on PyPI so you can easily install it with
pip install imgui[full]
Above command will install
imgui package with additional dependencies for all
built-in rendering backend integrations (pygame, cocos2d, etc.). If you don't
want to install all additional dependencies you can always use bare
pip install imgui command or select a specific set of extra requirements:
- for pygame backend use
pip install imgui[pygame]
- for GLFW3 backend use
pip install imgui[glfw]
- for SDL2 backend use
pip install imgui[sdl2]
- for Cocos2d backend use
pip install imgui[cocos2d]
- for pyglet backend use
pip install imgui[pyglet]
Package is distributed in form of built wheels so it does not require compilation on most operating systems. For more details about compatibility with diffferent OSes and Python versions see the Project ditribution section of this documentation page.
imgui package provides support for the majority of core ImGui widgets and
functionalities. Some low-level API elements and complex widgets (like plots)
may be missing. We are working hard to provide 100% feature mapping of the core
ImGui library. The completion badge shows up-to-date status of that goal.
This project has working build pipeline on Appveyor and Travis and builds succesfully for all major operating systems with different architectures:
- Windows (32bit & 64bit)
- Linux (32bit & 64bit)
- OS X (universal build)
Right now we are ready to shipping the built wheels for these three systems
(even for Linux using
manylinux1 wheels). The build pipeline covers multiple
pyimgui provides documentation with multiple visual examples. Thanks to custom Sphinx extensions we are able to render GUI examples off screen directly from docstring snippets. These examples work also as automated functional tests. Documentation is hosted on pyimgui.readthedocs.io.
If none of these wheels work in your environment you can install the
package by compiling it directly from sdist distribution using one of following
# will install Cython as extra dependency and compile from Cython sources pip install imgui[Cython] --no-binary imgui # will compile from pre-generated C++ sources pip install imgui --no-binary imgui
We have tried hard to make the process of bootstraping this project as simple as possible.
In order to build and install project locally ,ake sure you have created and
activated virtual environment using
python -m venv (for newer
Python releases). Then you can just run:
This command will bootstrap whole environment (pull git submodules, install
dev requirements etc.) and build the project.
make will automatically install
imgui in the development/editable mode. Then you can run some examples
found in the
doc/examples directory in order to verify if project is working.
For building documentation and running tests you will need some additional
You can run tests with:
If you have any problems with building or installing the project just ask us for help by creating GitHub issue.
