Pygame/PySimpleGUI setup help

How do I set up pygame and PySimpleGUI to use in my projects? For desktop apps. Thanks in advance!

I don’t think it’s possible, I think only android and web preview are possible currently. If you really want to use pygame/PySimpleGUI and can’t do it locally, you can try out replit.

I can run pygame and PySimpleGUI locally and replit isn’t the best for bigger projects like I’m doing. I tried using nix to set it up I want but it keeps crashing.

Sadly, you don’t get to access any actual GUI from the host server in Project IDX. From what I know, even the code editor run on your browser, so I don’t think a GUI like Pygame would work.

Okay! I’ll wait when support for pygame and pysimplegui is supported. Thank you!

Yes, @Sunny is correct. There are solutions here that we have prototyped around streaming native UI to the browser, but they aren’t in a state where we can share even an early preview of them for. This is something that will likely be a part of our future roadmap.


I can’t wait for that enter early preview!

I would also be excited to have native GUI streaming, if it is ever implemented please do implement it for flutter desktop as well, thanks!

Absolutely! Flutter Desktop would be one of our highest priority targets :slight_smile:
