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 Desktop applications.

Setting a good background template is a good thing to make your app look more attractive to the user. For inserting a background template in your App some modifications need to be done in the .kv file. Below is the code to set a background template for your app.

.Py file

# Program to create a background template for the App
# import necessary modules from kivy
from kivy.uix.boxlayout import BoxLayout
from import App
# create a background class which inherits the boxlayout class
class Background(BoxLayout):
    def __init__(self, **kwargs):
# Create App class with name of your app
class SampleApp(App):
# return the Window having the background template.
    def build(self):
        return Background()
# run app in the main function
if __name__ == '__main__':

.kv file

    id: main_win
    orientation: "vertical"
    spacing: 10
    space_x: self.size[0]/3
            rgba: (1, 1, 1, 1)
            size: root.width, root.height
            pos: self.pos
        text: "Click Me"
        pos_hint :{'center_x':0.2, 'center_y':0.2}
        size_hint: .30, 0
        background_color: (0.06, .36, .4, .675)
        font_size: 40
