Go API Reference 1.4.1 release Join us on Slack
Code Status Build Status Coverage Status


Fyne is an easy to use UI toolkit and app API written in Go. It is designed to build applications that run on desktop and mobile devices with a single codebase.

Version 1.4 is the current release - it introduced high performance collection widgets, Card, Separator and FileIcon widgets as well as a folder open dialog. It also saw a theme refresh updating the colors and button styles for a more material design look. We are now working towards 2.0 which aims to add data bindings, animations and more!


To develop apps using Fyne you will need Go version 1.12 or later, a C compiler and your system's development tools. If you're not sure if that's all installed or you don't know how then check out our Getting Started document.

Using the standard go tools you can install Fyne's core library using:

$ go get

Widget demo

To run a showcase of the features of Fyne execute the following:

$ go get
$ fyne_demo

And you should see something like this (after you click a few buttons):

Fyne Hello Light Theme

Or if you are using the light theme:

Fyne Hello Light Theme

Getting Started

Fyne is designed to be really easy to code with. If you have followed the prerequisite steps above then all you need is a Go IDE (or a text editor).

Open a new file and you're ready to write your first app!

package main

import (

func main() {
	a := app.New()
	w := a.NewWindow("Hello")

	hello := widget.NewLabel("Hello Fyne!")
		widget.NewButton("Hi!", func() {
			hello.SetText("Welcome :)")


And you can run that simply as:

go run main.go

It should look like this:

Fyne Hello Dark Theme Fyne Hello Dark Theme

Note that Windows applications load from a command prompt by default, which means if you click an icon you may see a command window. To fix this add the parameters -ldflags -H=windowsgui to your run or build commands.


Using go install will copy the executable into your go bin dir. To install the application with icons etc into your operating system's standard application location you can use the fyne utility and the "install" subcommand.

$ go get
$ fyne install

Packaging a release

Using the fyne utility "release" subcommand you can package up your app for release to app stores and market places. Make sure you have the standard build tools installed and have followed the platform documentation for setting up accounts and signing. Then you can execute something like the following, notice the -os ios parameter allows building an iOS app from macOS computer. Other combinations work as well :)

$ fyne release -os ios -certificate "Apple Distribution" -profile "My App Distribution" -appID "com.example.myapp"

The above command will create a '.ipa' file that can then be uploaded to the iOS App Store.


More documentation is available at the Fyne developer website or on


You can find many example applications in the examples repository. Alternatively a list of applications using fyne can be found at our website.

Package fyne describes the objects and components available to any Fyne app. These can all be created, manipulated and tested without rendering (for speed). Your main package should use the app package to create an application with a default driver that will render your UI.

A simple application may look like this:

package main

import ""
import ""

func main() {
	a := app.New()
	w := a.NewWindow("Hello")

	hello := widget.NewLabel("Hello Fyne!")
		widget.NewButton("Hi!", func() {
			hello.SetText("Welcome :)")




const SettingsScaleAuto = float32(-1.0)

SettingsScaleAuto is a specific scale value that indicates a canvas should scale according to the DPI of the window that contains it.

Deprecated: Automatic scaling is now handled in the drivers and is not a user setting.

An App is the definition of a graphical application. Apps can have multiple windows, it will exit when the first window to be shown is closed. You can also cause the app to exit by calling Quit(). To start an application you need to call Run() somewhere in your main() function. Alternatively use the window.ShowAndRun() function for your main window.

type WidgetRenderer

type WidgetRenderer interface {
	// BackgroundColor returns the color that should be used to draw the background of this renderer’s widget.
	// Deprecated: Widgets will no longer have a background to support hover and selection indication in collection widgets.

	// as the first child of a MaxLayout, followed by the rest of the widget components.
	BackgroundColor() color.Color
	// Destroy is for internal use.
	// Layout is a hook that is called if the widget needs to be laid out.
	// This should never call Refresh.
	// MinSize returns the minimum size of the widget that is rendered by this renderer.
	MinSize() Size
	// Objects returns all objects that should be drawn.
	Objects() []CanvasObject
	// Refresh is a hook that is called if the widget has updated and needs to be redrawn.

	// SetFullScreen changes the requested fullScreen property
	// true for a fullScreen window and false to unset this.

	// Resize this window to the requested content size.
	// The result may not be exactly as desired due to various desktop or
	// platform constraints.

	// RequestFocus attempts to raise and focus this window.

	// to steal focus from any current focused window.

	// FixedSize returns whether or not this window should disable resizing.
	FixedSize() bool
	// SetFixedSize sets a hint that states whether the window should be a fixed
	// size or allow resizing.

	// the Window object is currently positioned on.

	// Padded, normally true, states whether the window should have inner
	// padding so that components do not touch the window edge.
	Padded() bool
	// SetPadded allows applications to specify that a window should have
	// no inner padding. Useful for fullscreen or graphic based applications.

	// Icon returns the window icon, this is used in various ways
	// depending on operating system.
	// Most commonly this is displayed on the window border or task switcher.
	Icon() Resource

	// SetIcon sets the icon resource used for this window.
	// If none is set should return the application icon.

	// SetMaster indicates that closing this window should exit the app

	// MainMenu gets the content of the window's top level menu.
	MainMenu() *MainMenu

	// SetMainMenu adds a top level menu to this window.
	// The way this is rendered will depend on the loaded driver.

	// SetCloseIntercept sets a function that runs instead of closing if defined.
	// Close() should be called explicitly in the interceptor to close the window.

	// Show the window on screen.
	// Hide the window from the user.
	// This will not destroy the window or cause the app to exit.
	// Close the window.
	// If it is the only open window, or the "master" window the app will Quit.

	// ShowAndRun is a shortcut to show the window and then run the application.
	// This should be called near the end of a main() function as it will block.

	// Content returns the content of this window.
	Content() CanvasObject
	// SetContent sets the content of this window.
	// Canvas returns the canvas context to render in the window.
