This API reference was auto generated using pgi-docgen and describes the interfaces exposed by PyGObject.

Please report any bugs you find on the GitHub bug tracker.

Is this also available for offline use?

Yes, you can download gh-pages.zip (~30 MB), extract it and open the index.html file with Firefox or Chrome.

In case of Chrome/Chromium --allow-file-access-from-files has to be passed on start to enable all features also available in the online version.

Can I use this documentation with Devhelp?
Yes, see pgi-docs-devhelp.
I want to know how to write GTK+ applications...
Check out the Python GTK+ 3 Tutorial.
Why is library <XYZ> not included? How can I use library <XYZ> mentioned here, it's not available for my distro?

This API reference includes all libraries included in Debian testing/unstable. If the library you need is missing it might not be in Debian yet or is no longer included because it no longer has any users in Debian.

I use Debian as a source because it tracks upstream GNOME reasonably fast while still including libraries that are not part of GNOME.
