Installation

guizero is designed to allow children to quickly and easily create GUIs for their programs.

In educational settings (schools, libraries etc.), installation of extra programs and features may be difficult, so the setup process is designed to be as simple as possible. guizero only requires tkinter to be installed, and this is already bundled with most Python installations.

The aim is for installation and getting started to be as simple as possible.
