Version: 1.3
Synopsis: Embedded domain-specific language for declarative vector graphics
Description: Diagrams is a full-featured framework and embedded domain-specific langauge for creating
declarative vector graphics and animations.
.
This package is just a convenient wrapper
around the @diagrams-core@, @diagrams-lib@ and
@diagrams-contrib@ packages, so they can be
installed with a single @cabal install diagrams@
command.
.
The package also comes with flags to enable six
different backends.
A Haskell-native SVG
backend (the @diagrams-svg@ package)
can be selected with @-fsvg@. This
flag is enabled by default, so if you do /not/
want the SVG backend, you must explicitly
disable it with @-f-svg@. The SVG backend does not
yet quite support all the features of the cairo
backend: text alignment and embedded images are
the two main missing features at this point, and
of course it can only produce SVG images. It is,
however, much easier to install, so it is the
out-of-the-box default.
.
There is also a cairo backend (the
@diagrams-cairo@ package) which can be selected
with the @-fcairo@ flag. It is fully-featured and
can produce PNG, PS, PDF, SVG, or animated
GIF output; however,
due to its dependencies it can be difficult to
install on some platforms (notably OS X).
.
In addition, there is a GTK backend based on the
cairo backend, for rendering diagrams directly to
GTK windows. You can enable it with the @-fgtk@ flag.
.
The Haskell-native postscript
backend (the @diagrams-postscript@ package)
can be selected with the @-fpostscript@ flag. The only
feature it does not support is transparency.
.
There is a Rasterific backend which is
also Haskell-native (the @diagrams-rasterific@
package) which can be selected with the @-frasterific@
flag. This is a fully featured backend with the ability
to produce PNG, JPG, TIFF, BMP and animated GIF output.
.
Finally there is a Canvas backend, also haskell native,
which can be selected with the @-fcanvas@ flag. This
backend allows users to write interactive images onto
their web browsers.
.
