Platform Independent Graphics with Python
Speaker: Christopher Lee
Time: 1:30pm - 2:15pm
Location: San Carlos III
"Plug In Drawing, Does Little Else" ("PIDDLE") is a library for platform-independent vector graphics in Python. It can output drawings to Bitmap Images (via Python Imaging Library), PDF (via ReportLab), PostScript, Tkinter, wxPython, MacOS, OpenGL and a variety of other formats. This library is very important for anyone building GUI applications or outputting for both web and print. The session will cover how it works on various platforms, how to draw with PIDDLE, and charting libraries which can work with it, such as GRAPHITE and SNOW.
