Build native mobile apps in python

Project description

# enaml-native Build native mobile apps in python using enaml and native widgets! [![Build Status](]( [![codecov](](

[![Python Playground](](

The goal of this project is to be an alternative to using [kivy]( for building mobile apps with python.

I made this because wanted to have a more “React Native” like environment that: 1. Uses python 2. Uses native widgets (Android / iOS) 3. Can be run from Android Studio / XCode (ie no bootstraps) 4. Uses enaml’s models, and declarative and dynamic widget framework instead of kvlang 5. Versioned “packages” and “recipes” than can be installed/updated/removed to make repeatable builds

> Android apps are currently working and have a lot of components. iOS is currently broken, and is limited to only a few components at the moment

### Docs and Examples ###

See the [project site]( There’s also some short tutorials and examples on [youtube](

### Add-on Packages ###

Enaml-native was redesigned so separate “packages” can be created and installed to add new native widgets and other apis. Similar to the [kivy-garden]( but it borrows the concepts of the [react-native package manager](

Packages can be created using the enaml-native init-package <your-package-name> command. Once made they can be installed with pip or the enaml-native install command (recommended).

### Features ### 1. Enaml’s features: declarative syntax, conditional and looper rendering, automatic data binding 2. Layouts with flexbox 3. Live app code reloading (like react-native’s live reload) 4. Versioned package management and native library linking

### Apps ###

Apps using enaml-native can be found [here](

### Demos ### 1. Try out the beta demo app here [on google play]( 2. Try out code without installing the android SDK or NDK via the [Python Playground](!

### Thanks to ###

This project is built on top of several existing projects:

  1. [enaml](
  2. [python-for-android](
  3. [pybridge](
  4. [react-native]( (inspiration)
  5. [pyjnius](
  6. [kivy-ios](
