Python | Animation in Kivy using .kv file
Kivy is a platform independent GUI tool in Python. As it can be run on Android, IOS, Linux, and Windows, etc. It is basically used to develop the Android application, but it does not mean that it can not be used on Desktops applications.
Animation and AnimationTransition are used to animate Widget properties. You must specify at least a property name and target value. To use Animation, follow these steps:
- Setup an Animation object
- Use the Animation object on a Widget
To use animation you must have to import:
from kivy.animation import Animation
Basic Approaches: 1) import runTouchApp 2) import Builder 3) import Widget 4) import Animation 5) import Clock 6) import Window 7) import random 8) import listproperty 9) Build the .kv file 10) Create root class 11) Create the clock and anim react class used to animate the boxes 12) Run the App
In the below example we are creating the two boxes (red and green) in which we are giving animations to the red box i.e when the App starts the red box is in its animated view but to clear the concepts i am providing the green box which on click provide random animations i.e it goes anywhere at random.
The program consists of two main classes first is clock class which is for the red box as we are declaring it animated and the green box animation is in anim class.
To provide the motion you must have to play with velocity.
Implementation of the Approach:
