New in version 1.7.0.
Changed in version 1.8.0.
Garden is now distributed as a separate Python module, kivy-garden. You can install it with pip:
pip install kivy-garden
The garden module does not initially include any packages. You can download them with the garden tool installed by the pip package:
# Installing a garden package garden install graph # Upgrade a garden package garden install --upgrade graph # Uninstall a garden package garden uninstall graph # List all the garden packages installed garden list # Search new packages garden search # Search all the packages that contain "graph" garden search graph # Show the help garden --help
All the garden packages are installed by default in ~/.kivy/garden.
In previous versions of Kivy, garden was a tool at kivy/tools/garden. This no longer exists, but the kivy-garden module provides exactly the same functionality.
If you want to include garden packages in your application, you can add –app to the install command. This will create a libs/garden directory in your current directory which will be used by kivy.garden.
cd myapp garden install --app graph
