In this video I’ll show you how to use python in your .kv design files.

Can we use actual Python on a Kivy .kv file? Well….sort of! I’ll show you how to do it in this video.

#kivy #codemy

Python Code:
GitHub Code:

from kivy.lang import Builder
from import MDApp

class MainApp(MDApp):
	some_text = "Hello World!"
	our_list = ["John", "Mary", "Tina"]
	def build(self):
		self.theme_cls.theme_style = "Light"
		self.theme_cls.primary_palette = "BlueGray"
		return Builder.load_file('code.kv')


Kivy Design Code: code.kv
GitHub Code: code.kv

		text: app.some_text
		pos_hint: {'center_x': .5, 'center_y': .5}
			for i in app.our_list:\
			our_label.text = our_label.text + "\n" + i

		id: our_label
		text: ""
		pos_hint: {'center_x': .95, 'center_y': .4}
