Libboard: a vector graphics C++ library

The LibBoard C++ library

Purpose

The LibBoard C++ library allows the drawing of Postscript, SVG, and FIG (XFig) vector graphics using the C++ programming language.

It is suitable for adding SVG/EPS/FIG output support to a program; but also for drawing graphics that involve a large (huge?) number of primitives. In the latter case, one can indeed use loops, variables, functions and all C++ features. Produced files may afterwards be edited using dedicated tools.

Features

For now, LibBoard can handle primitives like lines, rectangles, triangles, polylines, circles, ellipses, bitmap images and text. See the TODO file for a list of features that should be added in future releases.
