Why Pylash

  1. Cross-platform. Leveraging compatibility of the underlying engine PySide2, pylash supports many mainstream platforms including Ubuntu, macOS and Windows.
  2. Easy-to-use APIs. Pylash adopts ActionScript-like interface designs to raise the efficiency of game developing.
  3. Lightweight. Pylash does not come with piles of third-party tools and frameworks.
  4. Comprehensiveness. Pylash is a universal framework and provides various object-oriented interfaces including display of images, text and vector graphics, collision detection, tween animation, multimedia, etc.

Get Started with Pylash

Installation

$ pip install pylash-engine

Hello World Program

Create a Python file and open it with your favorite text editor. Type in the code below:

from pylash.core import init, addChild
from pylash.display import TextField

def main():
    txt = TextField()
    txt.text = "Hello World"
    txt.size = 40
    txt.x = txt.y = 100
    addChild(txt)

init(30, "Hello World", 400, 300, main)

Run the Python file and you will get a window with a "Hello World" text.
