python -m pip install docutils pygments pypiwin32 kivy_deps.sdl2==0.1.22 kivy_deps.glew==0.1.12
python -m pip install kivy_deps.gstreamer==0.1.17
python -m pip install kivy==1.11.1
(Optionally) Install the kivy examples:
python -m pip install kivy_examples==1.11.1
The examples are installed in the share directory under the root directory where python is installed.
That’s it. You should now be able to
import kivy in python or run a basic example if you installed the kivy examples:
Now...to install the garden.knob Kivy app, you do this (I cut/pasted it from the link I sent this morning - I just posted how to do the knob install for Kivy):
For those trying to install the knobs for Kivy under Windows 10, all you have to do once you have Kivy installed is to do the following on the Command Prompt: garden install garden.knob ...this will install the garden.knob app using the Kivy installer for apps from Github and located in the 'kivy-garden' subdirectory on Github. Once you have that installed, you can download the entire folder from https://github.com/kivy-garden/garden.knob
and then locate it (copy paste using Windows File Explorer) under the Users\<your username>\kivy_venv\share\kivy-examples\ subdirectory. Go to that subdirectory in the Command Prompt and then on the command line type the following: python example.py
and VIOLA - you'll see the knobs appear on a panel and you can play with them..! HAVE FUN WITH IT..!!
And so there it is...You'll have a Kivy environment and all you need it Python 2.7 to make it happen (it's necessary since Kivy is based on Python). Check out the other apps and demos they have...There is one demo you can try with this command on the Command Prompt:
That will show you A LOT of other examples to use with Kivy, too.
Have fun with it, I know I will be with SDRAngel and the Lime..!!
