    The entire interface for the Catalog is defined in kivycatalog.kv, although
    individual containers are defined in the container_kvs directory.

    To add a container to the catalog,
    first create the .kv file in container_kvs
    The name of the file (sans .kv) will be the name of the widget available
    inside the kivycatalog.kv
    Finally modify kivycatalog.kv to add an AccordionItem
    to hold the new widget.
    Follow the examples in kivycatalog.kv to ensure the item
    has an appropriate id and the class has been referenced.

    You do not need to edit any python code, just .kv language files!
