On Wednesday, March 4th, our monthly meetup took place at TechHub Riga. Pizza and cookies were provided courtesy of EGlobal, who have a bunch of pythonistas here in Latvia.


Aigars Mahinovs ( showed us how to build Android and iOS application with Kivy.

Kivy is a Open source Python library for rapid development of applications that make use of innovative user interfaces, such as multi-touch apps. It runs on Linux, Windows, OS X, Android and iOS. You can run the same code on all supported platforms. It can use natively most inputs, protocols and devices.

Only drawback is lack of native look and feel. But there is some work done in this direction.
