Tech stack

Dear PyGui is built on top of Dear ImGui, including the ImPlot and imnodes extensions, and is fundamentally different than other Python GUI frameworks. Under the hood, it uses the immediate mode paradigm and your computer's GPU to facilitate extremely dynamic interfaces. In the same manner Dear ImGui provides a simple way to create tools for game developers, Dear PyGui provides a simple way for python developers to create quick and powerful GUIs for scripts. Dear PyGui is written in C/C++ resulting in highly performant Python applications. Dear PyGui is currently supported on the following platforms.

Platform Graphics API Newest Version
Windows 10 DirectX 11 PYPI
macOS Metal PYPI
Linux OpenGL 3 PYPI
Raspberry Pi 4 OpenGL ES PYPI
