Python | Carousel Widget In Kivy
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.
The Carousel widget provides the classic mobile-friendly carousel view where you can swipe between slides. You can add any content to the carousel and have it move horizontally or vertically. The carousel can display pages in a sequence or a loop.
Some Important Points to notice:
1) It provides ease to traverse set of slides.
2) It can hold image, videos or any other content
3) The movement can be vertical or horizontal swipes
4) Kivy provides several customizations to a Carousel that include:
- Animation effect while a transition is made from one slide to another slide, duration of the transition period
- Specifying the direction of the swipe
- Disabling vertical swipes
- Whether the carousel should loop infinitely or not
- Specification of minimum distance to be considered while accepting a swipe
- Specification of minimum duration to be considered while accepting a swipe
- Specifying current, previous and next slides
