I found this in my logs from 2013 and it looks really nice now.

Another example app with Kivy + SQLite: Image Viewer and Organizer, https://github.com/gau-veldt/ImageOrg

This is also interesting: http://libnui.github.io/nui3/ I'm not exactly sure anymore about the relation. Is Kivy based on libnui?




Kivy looks very nice but NUI is a very different beast (I'm the author). The main difference being that even though NUI is a complete multi-plateform framework that uses OpenGL for rendering, it has a strictly C++ API.

If you want to see apps built with NUI I just released reChord: http://bit.ly/rechord And also some very nice music apps with NUI: http://intua.net/products/beatmaker2/ http://www.whitenoiseaudio.com/apps/genome-midi-sequencer/ http://www.whitenoiseaudio.com/apps/bleepbox/


In the GitHub description (https://github.com/kivy/kivy), it says about Kivy:

"Open source software library for creating NUI applications, running on Windows, Linux, MacOSX, Android and iOS"

I guess that is why I searched for NUI and I probably found your lib. I don't remember that I have heard that term "NUI" before.


I've been using the name for 13 years or so but a number of other libs started using the acronym unfortunately (New UI, Natural UI, etc.). I should have been more vocal and public about the lib from the beginning :-).


Some nice looking apps there: well done!


> ImageOrg

I see a few files, but no instructions. Isn't kivy supposed to be a GUI building tool?

Where is the exe or dmg file?


The user hasn't packaged this into a standalone executable (though this is possible with e.g. pyinstaller). You need to run the ImageOrg.py file with python.


No, kivy has no relation to libnui.
