This Python module provides bindings for the Cairo graphics library. There is support for multiple output devices, including window systems and image files.
pycairo is a Windows development component for Python. It allows you to create and edit vector images with the help of the Cairo 2D graphics library.
The program lets users generate complex charts and graphs for various scientific applications. It provides options for developing software interfaces and creating data visualizations. Additionally, there are tools for designing beautiful vector graphics for web pages, print materials and online presentations.
How it works
After installing the module you are able to create a new object that represents a sequence of connected lines and curves. There are commands for drawing geometrical shapes. Moreover, it is possible to change the color and thickness of individual lines. Instruments for drawing text inscriptions are provided as well.
Users can draw dashed, dotted or solid lines. A variety of fill gradients and patterns is included. The Clipping feature is intended for drawing only within a specific region. There are tools for scaling, rotating and translating vector graphics.
Resulting pictures can be saved as standard image files or automatically converted to PDF documents.
