Kivy is an open source library for developing multi-touch applications. It is completely cross platform (Linux/OSX/Win/Android) and released under the terms of the MIT license.

It comes with native support for many multi-touch input devices, a growing library of multi-touch aware widgets, hardware accelerated OpenGL drawing, and an architecture that is designed to let you focus on building custom and highly interactive applications as quickly and easily as possible.

Kivy is a mixed Python library with Cython code, to take advantage of its highly dynamic nature and use any of the thousands of high quality and open source Python libraries out there, with the speed of C code.

This package contains the Python 3 compatible version of the library.

The Python Imaging Library (PIL) adds an image object to your Python interpreter. You can load images from a variety of file formats, and apply a rich set of image operations to them.

Image Objects:

  • Bilevel, greyscale, palette, true colour (RGB), true colour with transparency (RGBA).
  • colour separation (CMYK).
  • Copy, cut, paste operations.
  • Flip, transpose, resize, rotate, and arbitrary affine transforms.
  • Transparency operations.
  • Channel and point operations.
  • Colour transforms, including matrix operations.
  • Image enhancement, including convolution filters.

File Formats:

  • Full (Open/Load/Save): BMP, EPS (with ghostscript), GIF, IM, JPEG, MSP, PDF, PNG, PPM, TIFF, XBM.
  • Read only (Open/Load): ARG, CUR, DCX, FLI, FPX, GBR, GD, ICO, IMT, IPTC, MCIDAS, MPEG, PhotoCD, PCX, PIXAR, PSD, TGA, SGI, SUN, TGA, WMF, XPM.
  • Save only: PDF, EPS (without ghostscript).

Vim is an almost compatible version of the UNIX editor Vi.

Many new features have been added: multi level undo, syntax highlighting, command line history, on-line help, filename completion, block operations, folding, Unicode support, etc.

This package contains a version of vim compiled with a rather standard set of features. This package does not provide a GUI version of Vim. See the other vim-* packages if you need more (or less).

The package is enhanced by the following packages: halibut notmuch tpp vim-latexsuite vim-scripts
