KivyAuth Desktop Test Demo

Desktop_demo_test gif



  • Fixed crashing when user doesn’t have a photo

v2.3.1 – KivyAuth cross-platform

  • Kivyauth APIs are now platform-independent
  • Desktop support for linux, win and possibly mac

v2.3 – KivyAuth cross-platform

  • Desktop support added(in alpha)
  • All android auths are inside while those for desktops are inside kivyauth.desktop


  • Added Auto-login feature
  • login_providers are now inside kivyauth rather than kivyauth.providers


  • Individual login providers are moved into respective folders
  • Fix problem of not being able to use individual login methods
  • Now it’s relatively easier to use the library

How to use

Instruction for testing out KivyAuth for Desktop:

  • pip install kivyauth
  • Make Sure you’ve created OAuth apps and have their CLIENT_ID and CLIENT_SECRET handy before running demo application

Note(for android):

Make sure you go through the prerequisites
for the login methods you’re going to integrate in your application before moving further

The example below shows integrating google login. Similarly other login methods can also be used.

  • Include necessary imports for google login
from kivyauth.google_auth import initialize_google, login_google, logout_google
  • Initialize google login inside your app’s build method

def build(self):
  initialize_google(self.after_login, self.error_listener)

after_login is a function to be called upon successful login with name, email, and photo url of the user. So, create a success listener function which accepts three parameters and perform after-login stuffs(like updating UI, etc.). error_listener is called in case of any error and it doesn’t accept any argument.

  • You can also add auto-login( if the user is already logged in then directly move to after-login stuff) inside app’s on_start method as below(mention only login providers you are using in your app):

def on_start(self):

    if auto_login(
        self.current_provider =
    elif auto_login(login_providers.facebook):
        self.current_provider = login_providers.facebook
    elif auto_login(login_providers.github):
        self.current_provider = login_providers.github
    elif auto_login(login_providers.twitter):
        self.current_provider = login_providers.twitter
  • Next, call login_google() upon a button click to initiate login process.

  • Similarly, to logout, call logout_google as


after_logout is a function to be called after user gets logged out. For example, to update UI.

  • Make sure to include kivyauth as a requirement in the buildozer.spec file
requirements = python3,kivy,kivyauth
  • See demo for reference.


  • Make it cross-platform
