Grid-based game framework built with Kivy 1.9

Project description

## Okapi

#### What it is A library to build grid-based games using Kivy 1.9

#### Installation

Installing packages with Kivy is a joy because you cannot use virtual environments (assuming you use the Kivy package installer). Kivy creates its own unique snowflake environment, then provides a kivy command-line utility that heavily modifies your PYTHONPATH before ultimately launching the python interpreter. Thus, virtual environments are off the table, as none of their packages can be imported after using kivy.

  1. [Download the Kivy installer](http://kivy.org/docs/installation/installation.html) and use it to install Kivy.
  1. Next, install Okapi from PyPI, but be sure to install it where Kivy is willing to look on your machine. On Mac OS X, that is here: /Applications/Kivy.app/Contents/Resources/venv/lib/python2.7/site-packages

    pip install kivy-okapi==0.1.0 -t /Applications/Kivy.app/Contents/Resources/venv/lib/python2.7/site-packages

#### Launching an Okapi App

Once Okapi is installed where Kivy is willing to look, you can simply navigate into any game folder and run kivy main.py like normal, and all Okapi libraries will be available.
