Dear PyGui is a simple to use (but powerful) Python GUI framework. Dear PyGui is NOT a wrapping of Dear ImGui in the normal sense. It is a library built with Dear ImGui which simulates a traditional retained mode GUI (as opposed to Dear ImGui's immediate mode paradigm).


Dear PyGui is fundamentally different than other Python GUI frameworks. Under the hood, Dear PyGui uses the immediate mode paradigm and your computer's GPU to facilitate extremely dynamic interfaces. Dear PyGui is currently supported on the following platforms:

Platform Rendering API Newest Version
Windows 10 DirectX 11 PYPI
macOs Metal PYPI
Linux OpenGL 3 PYPI
Raspberry Pi 4 OpenGL ES PYPI

In the same manner Dear ImGui provides a simple way to create tools for game developers, Dear PyGui provides a simple way for python developers to create quick and powerful GUIs for scripts.

def save_callback():
    print("Save Clicked")

with dpg.window(label="Example Window"):
    dpg.add_text("Hello world")
    dpg.add_button(label="Save", callback=save_callback)
