Kiwi is an efficient C++ implementation of the Cassowary constraint solving
algorithm. Kiwi is an implementation of the algorithm based on the
seminal Cassowary paper <https://constraints.cs.washington.edu/solvers/cassowary-tochi.pdf>_.
It is not a refactoring of the original C++ solver. Kiwi has been designed
from the ground up to be lightweight and fast. Kiwi ranges from 10x to 500x
faster than the original Cassowary solver with typical usecases gaining a 40x
improvement. Memory savings are consistently > 5x.
In addition to the C++ solver, Kiwi ships with hand-rolled Python bindings for Python 3.7+.
