Kivy on Buster or Stretch (pi zero)

Has anyone tried to run kivy on any recent version of DietPi?

I have followed instructions for installing kivy for generic linux, and also raspbian installation. They haven’t updated their instructions for Buster, but I found some instructions within an issue ticket on github for the pi 3b+ and 4. All have the same issue, failed to find valuable window provider.

Here’s what it looks like on the newest Buster, 6.26.3, the newest kivy, python 3.7.3, and all the dependencies required for raspbian buster desktop as per
