A crossword generator
Genxword is a crossword generator written in Python. It works with Python 2.7 and Python 3.
When you install genxword, you will have two programs, genxword-gtk, which has a graphical user interface, and genxword, which runs from the command line.
Both programs create a crossword from a list of words and clues. You can save the crossword, with clues, as a pdf file, or you can save the empty grid and key in png and/or svg format, together with the word bank and clues in a text file.
Please read the wiki for information about how to use genxword.
To install genxword for Python 3 (add sudo to the command, or run as root, if you are using Linux):
pip3 install genxword
To install genxword for Python 2.7, or any version on Windows:
pip install genxword
Genxword depends on pycairo (python-cairo), pygobject (python-gobject or python-gi), python-gi-cairo (if you are using a Debian-based system), pango (gir1.2-pango-1.0) and gtksourceview3 (gir1.2-gtksource-3.0).
These dependencies can easily be installed on Linux by using your package manager, and with most distributions, they will already be installed.
Windows users can download these dependencies from here When installing python-gobject, you also need to install (check the boxes for) gtk3, pango, gdk-pixbuf and gtksourceview3.
