"UI for Python Code"

What do you like best?

Kivy is the best python library that helps you to design a UI in python for a python code.Using kivy you can really develop applications using python with much ease.Kivy helps you to design your application UI just by some simple python codes which are like XML tags(similiar to).You can also add buttons and give them functions to be executed onclick or on hover and so on.Also you can get the input text from the user.You can also set the backgroud color or image and also many more things regarding UI can be done using kivy.

What do you dislike?

Kivy is the innovative library for python and like an angel to py developers because they just got an UI for their code so it is best.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend all the python developers to use kivy to get your code some UI so that you can showecase the naive user what you actually have developed using your skills.Moreover you can create really attractive and usefull end user application using kivy which is really great.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am a python developer and have always wanted to deploy my code in the form of an application.Everytime I had to take help of any third party software that would either convert or connect my code to the UI.Instead when I came to know about kivy,i am easily able to develop my end-user application using python itself and withou help of anybody else which is really great.

"Python framework to build Android apps."

What do you like best?

- Documentation and examples provided.

- You can build a great UI/UX for your android application using Kivy.

What do you dislike?

No support for Windows when you talk about building .apk. You can create application test it but when it comes to build .apk you need a Linux environment. It becomes very difficult when using Windows Operating System.

Recommendations to others considering the product

When using with Windows, download Buildozer it is a necessary tool without it you won't be able to create .apk files. I better recommend to use Linux based operating system, no issues regarding this when using in Linux encireonment.

"A great jump start to making a UI for your Python Applications"

What do you like best?

It's very powerful and free. While it is positioned as being mainly for mobile development, I found it works fine for desktop applications as well.

What do you dislike?

It would be better if you could only include the required Kivy components for your particular application.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's definitely one of the better free ui options out there.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use python scripts to perform a number of tasks. I can now use Kivy to easily build a user interface so that employees not versed in Python can perform these tasks no different than operating any other user friendly application.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use it in Linux environment.

Making android apps using python.

"Great new cross platform application framework!"

What do you like best?

The online community (IRC, forums) is a great place to learn. The users are extremely helpful and nice.

KV language is great. Kivy is great for building a cross platform application. Easy to port to android.

What do you dislike?

A little tricky at times to get the event dispatching and property bindings right, but once you understand it it becomes very powerful.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a great new platform. It can help you create amazing cross platform apps and it's framework is very flexible and robust. It will not, however, create native looking applications. With a little time and effort you can make the application look native.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Cross platform application development with main focus on embedded linux and android. It was very easy to build the app for both linux and android. There was no differences in how it ran under each OS.

What do you like best?

The creating of UI elements and binding them to your own functionalities is extremely easy to do and very intuitive.

Performance wise is not the best I`ve seen for even simple applications. I`ve run into many race conditions in regards to scheduling clock events when updating canvas' and displaying the appropriate image.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Excellent tool to create a simple front end GUI for your application.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

To create a cross platform solution to migrate our flagship software from the Desktop space onto an integrated embedded system as well as a maintaining a reliable Desktop solution at the same time.
