Pyglet-gui is an extension of Pyglet for graphical user interfaces (GUIs). Thanks for checking it out.
This project started as a fork of Kytten, but ended up being a new project by its own right since the API changed dramatically.
Implements a controller-viewer pattern.
Pyglet-gui uses the concept of "controllers" to handle window events and "viewers" to draw.
For example, a Button is a subclass of a two-state controller and a viewer.
Use of Mixins
Pyglet-gui uses mixins for extending functionality of viewers and controllers. This increases code reusability and modularity.
For example, mouse hovering behaviour is added with a HoveringMixin class.
Implements an abstraction for graphical appearance
Pyglet-gui uses "themes" where each (static) resource is defined in a JSON file. This file is loaded, and viewers select specific resources from an unique path.
For example, the Pyglet-gui standard Button chooses the path
def get_path(self): path = ['button'] if self.is_pressed(): path.append('down') else: path.append('up') return path
Has some standard user interfaces:
- Button, Slider
- Option selector, Dropdown
- Vertical, Horizontal, Grid containers.
- Scrollable content display

To run Pyglet-gui full test suite, use
python -m tests.runtests
To run a specific module, use
python -m tests.specificModule
The contributor of Kytten was Conrad "Lynx" Wong, which this project reuses.
Jorge C. Leitão designed, unit tested and documented the API.
