Python | Create a stopwatch using clock object 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 Desktop applications.

The Clock object allows you to schedule a function call in the future; once or repeatedly at specified intervals.
You can get the time elapsed between the scheduling and the calling of the callback via the dt argument:
Note: If the callback returns False, the schedule will be canceled and won’t repeat.
In this, we are going to create the kivy the stopwatch and we are creating 3 buttons in this which are the start, pause, resume.
It is good to use kivy inbuilt module while working with clock and:
from kivy.clock import Clock
Basic Approach: 1) import kivy 2) import kivyApp 3) import Builder 4) import Boxlayout 5) Import clock 6) import kivy properties(only needed one) 7) Set minimum version(optional) 8) Create the .kv code: 1) Create Buttons 2) Add call to button 3) Add label 9) Create Layout class 10) Create App class 11) return Layout/widget/Class(according to requirement) 12) Run an instance of the class
# Implementation of the Approach:
In this when you press start count start, when press Restart it starts again and when pause it get paused.
