Kivy - Open source Python library for rapid development of applications
that make use of innovative user interfaces, such as multi-touch apps.
Kivy runs on Linux, Windows, OS X, Android, iOS, and Raspberry Pi. You can run the same code on all supported platforms.
It can natively use most inputs, protocols and devices including WM_Touch, WM_Pen, Mac OS X Trackpad and Magic Mouse, Mtdev, Linux Kernel HID, TUIO. A multi-touch mouse simulator is included.
Python is an easy to learn, powerful programming language. It has efficient high-level data structures and a simple but effective approach to object-oriented programming. Python’s elegant syntax and dynamic typing, together with its interpreted nature, make it an ideal language for scripting and rapid application development in many areas on. It supports editing, browsing, IntelliSense, mixed Python/C debugging, remote Linux/MacOS debugging, profiling, IPython, and web development with Django and other frameworks. From the Visual Studio 2017 or Visual Studio 2019 installer, select the Python or Data Science workload to add Python support to Visual Studio.

I think this is the python located in /usr/bin/python. Unfortunately I have already installed Anaconda, which installs python 3.6.3, and changes things so that the command python xxx.py automatically runs xxx.py using python 3.6.3. Visual Studio 2019 for Mac. Develop apps and games for iOS, Android and using.NET. Download Visual Studio for Mac. Create and deploy scalable, performant apps using.NET and C# on the Mac.
Kivy is 100% free to use, under an MIT license (starting from 1.7.2) and LGPL 3 for the previous versions. The toolkit is professionally developed, backed and used. You can use it in a commercial product.
The framework is stable and has a well documented API, plus a programming guide to help you get started.
The graphics engine is built over OpenGL ES 2, using a modern and fast graphics pipeline.
The toolkit comes with more than 20 widgets, all highly extensible. Many parts are written in C using Cython, and tested with regression tests.
