Kivy is a Modern UI framework that greatly simplifies the development of cross-platform apps suitable for both mobile and desktop.
This book is a practical guide that will walk you through the creation of intuitive multi-platform games and apps for day-to-day use. You will learn how to build simple, common apps such as Stopwatch and Paint. Then, we will gradually dive into more advanced Python and Kivy features. We will also cover a number of related topics ranging from UI design to low-level GLSL shaders. You will be able to fill your resume with practical applications and games, including those inspired by the insanely popular puzzle game 2048 and Flappy Bird. Each chapter covers a fully functional program, highlighting different aspects of the Kivy framework.
