  • enaml

    Declarative User Interfaces for Python

  • kiwi-java

    A Java port of the Kiwi C++ implementation of the Cassowary constraint solving algorithm

  • Nucleic also makes Kiwi one of the fastest Cassowary Constraint implementations. It is very useful for implementing custom GUIs as it can make building internal component layouts and general layout systems fairly straightforward and it’s very performant.

    I highly encourage taking a look at it and it has also been ported to a wide range of language.

    I’m using Nim kiwi with my own GUI library now. I’ll have to take a peak at how enaml is using kiwi for its layouts.

  • cssgrid

    Pure Nim CSS Grid layout engine

  • https://github.com/elcritch/cssgrid/blob/main/tests/tlayout....

    Super easy to let autoflow pack around your main items which is great for UIs:

  • pyrract

    Discontinued A React-esque library for Python

  • This is really cool. I was playing around with a similar concept myself a few years ago (trying to build something React-esque, but for Python GUIs). It was way over my head then though, so I've never got anything more than a proof of concept working.

  • enaml-web

    Build interactive websites with enaml

  • traitsui

    TraitsUI: Traits-capable windowing framework

  • It's not quite a new implementation, since the initial version of enaml was implemented almost a decade ago, and was partly inspired by an earlier toolkit called Traits/TraitsUI - https://github.com/enthought/traitsui.

  • qtpy

    Provides an uniform layer to support PyQt5, PySide2, PyQt6, PySide6 with a single codebase
