Getting started


KrySA is still in pre-alpha, most of the features are buggy or not yet supported. Read Contributing section if you want to help speed up the process.

KrySA runs on Kivy framework, therefore it is possible to run it on any of available platforms for Kivy, mainly Windows, Linux and Mac with all required packages correctly compiled:

There’s no executable for KrySA yet, you’ll need to install it from source and run with Python until there is a release available.

Minimum system requirements

RAM At least 256 MB
Disk space At least 400 MB free(*)
Resolution Minimum of 800 x 600
CPU ? ? ?
GPU Anything with OpenGL 2.0 support should be enough
Internet Necessary for downloading requirements and updating

*if installing from scratch


First of all you’ll need Python. To simplify the process use KivyInstaller on Windows, which will install Python together with Kivy. On other platforms use Kivy Installation page as reference.


KrySA requires the latest version of Kivy. It’s available either as daily-builds on ppa or as the .whl files uploaded on Google Drive. If none of those are good, compile Kivy from source.

Then it gets a little bit harder with SciPy and NumPy because those need to be compiled and it sometimes doesn’t work with Windows. For this case we will use already compiled packages in .whl files. You can find them either on pypi or here. Choose packages for Python 2.7 (cp27). On Linux they should work without issues with pip install <package>.

pip install <path to package>.whl

Then install MatPlotLib. This is easy even on Windows:

pip install matplotlib

Getting KrySA

There are many ways how to get it, but basically you need to download it from the official repository.

  1. Pip

    KrySA is available on PyPi, simply type:

    pip install krysa

    and then run it with:

    python -m krysa
  2. Git

    Clone the whole repository and be able to update KrySA when a new version arrives with a simple git pull.

    git clone
  3. Zip

    Click on the Clone or download button, download the zip file and unpack its contents.

When the repo clone(git/zip) of KrySA is ready, simply navigate into it and run:


About docs

The documentation includes source with notes how most of the things work for example which widgets are connected, what’s needed to call to make a custom Task and other related stuff.

Each documented class or function/method will have a little source link on the right side. This will send you to its place in the code. In the code there are similar docs links (they’ll return you back) at the same place as it was for the source in modules’ documentation.
