A Python native, OS native GUI toolkit.

Project description


A Python native, OS native GUI toolkit.


Minimum requirements

* Toga requires **Python 3**. Python 2 is not supported.

* If you're on macOS, you need to be on 10.7 (Lion) or newer.

* If you're on Linux, you need to have GTK+ 3.10 or later. This is the version
that ships starting with Ubuntu 14.04 and Fedora 20. You also need to install
the Python 3 bindings to GTK+.

* We're working on Windows support, but not all features and widgets are supported. At a minimum, you'll need Python 3 and .NET Framework 4. This has been tested on Windows 10, but should work on 7 and 8. Pull requests, help and corrections are most welcome.

Optional extras

If you want to use the WebView widget, you'll
also need to have WebKit, plus the GI bindings to WebKit installed. This means
you'll need to install the following:
* **Ubuntu 14.04** ``apt-get install python3-gi gir1.2-webkit-3.0``

* **Ubuntu 16.04 / Debian 8** ``apt-get install python3-gi gir1.2-webkit2-4.0``
or ``apt-get install python3-gi gir1.2-webkit-3.0``

* **Fedora** ``dnf install python3-gobject pywebkitgtk``
or ``yum install python3-gobject pywebkitgtk``

Other distros should be similar, but feel free to send a pull request with updated dependencies if needed.

If these requirements aren't met, Toga either won't work at all, or won't have
full functionality.


To get a demonstration of the capabilities of Toga, run the following::

$ pip install toga-demo
$ toga-demo

This will pop up a GUI window with some sample widgets.


Documentation for Toga can be found on `Read The Docs`_.


Toga is part of the `BeeWare suite`_. You can talk to the community through:

* `@pybeeware on Twitter`_

* The `pybee/general`_ channel on Gitter.


If you experience problems with Toga, `log them on GitHub`_. If you
want to contribute code, please `fork the code`_ and `submit a pull request`_.
