pywebview is a lightweight cross-platform wrapper around a webview component that allows to display HTML content in its own dedicated window. It gives you richness of web technologies in your desktop application, all without a need to resort to an external browser. Combined with a lightweight web framework like Flask, Bottle or, you can create beautiful cross-platform HTML5 user interfaces targeting WebKit, while hiding the implementation details from the end user.

pywebview is lightweight with no dependencies on external GUI framwork. It uses native GUI for creating a web component window: Win32 on Windows, Cocoa on Mac OSX and Qt4/5 or GTK3 on Linux. If you decide to convert your application to an executable format, it does not bundle a heavy GUI toolkit with it, which keeps the size of the executable small. Python 2 and 3 compatible.

pip install pywebview
