Project Summary:

A metapackage to install the full BeeWare suite of tools.

Project Description:

Write once. Deploy everywhere.

Write your apps in Python and release them on iOS, Android, Windows, MacOS, Linux, Web, and tvOS using rich, native user interfaces. Multiple apps, one codebase, with a fully native user experience on every platform.

 

One codebase. Multiple apps.

BeeWare allows you to write your app in Python and release it on multiple platforms. No need to rewrite the app in multiple programming languages. It means no issues with build tools, environments, compatibility, etc.

 

Python native tools...

Python has proven itself as a highly capable language - approachable for newcomers, but powerful in the hands of experts. Why shouldn't you be able to use Python everywhere that you need to tell a computer to do something? And shouldn't your tools exploit all the capabilities of Python as a language, not just the bits that map nicely to a C binding?

 

...on mobile & desktop...

Modern computing doesn't happen in an 80x25 console window. It happens on phones, tablets, and desktop machines with rich user interfaces. Shouldn't you be able to use Python in all those locations, and exploit the unique capabilities of those platforms?

 

...behaving natively.

End users shouldn't have to care what language their tools are written in. And that starts with looking and behaving like completely native tools. Native appearance, native behavior, delivered in the way a native app is delivered. Why shouldn't your Python tools fit in just as well as a native tool?

 

This is BeeWare.

This is what BeeWare provides. Tools to help you write Python code with a rich, native user interface; and the libraries and support code necessary to get that code running on iOS, Android, macOS, Linux, Windows, tvOS, and more.

 

Open source

The Open Source development process has proven itself to be the most reliable way to develop robust and reliable software. That's why the entire BeeWare suite of tools are BSD licensed, and available for all to use and modify.
