Python bindings for SFMLΒΆ

This is version 2.3.2 of the official Python bindings for SFML, based on SFML 2.3.2, and is made available under the terms of the zlib/libpng license.

These bindings officially support Python 2.7 and the latest version of Python 3.x but we encourage you to use the latter one. Incidentally, the documentation, tutorials and examples are written in the latest version of Python.
