A framework for building hierarchical GUIs

Project description

# Introduction

hgf is a hierarchical GUI framework for Python, built on top of Pygame. It is designed to ease the creation of graphical applications that,

  • Support external configuration - controls, options, style
  • Manage structural complexity - by composing simple elements
  • Separate major concerns - behavior, layout, appearance

With code that is easy to read, write, and extend, with minimal boilerplate.

hgf is currently version 0.2.2, pre-alpha. The API may be volatile, but any changes to it will be made in an effort to better manifest these design principles.
