Shoebot

Shoebot is a Python graphics robot: It takes a Python script as input, which describes a drawing process, and outputs a graphic in a common open standard format (SVG, PDF, PostScript, or PNG). It works through simple text files, and scripts can describe their own GUIs for controlling variables interactively. It can also be used as a Python module, a plugin for Python-scriptable tools such as Inkscape, and run from the command line.

Shoebot is a port/rewrite of Nodebox 1. It was also inspired by DrawBot and Shoes. Thus, "Shoebot".

Build Status

Documentation

You can find the current docs at ReadTheDocs.

The Nodebox tutorials are an excellent intro to the language and its core concepts. Shoebot is a rewrite of Nodebox 1, so the original Nodebox documentation is required reading.

The Shoebot documentation has quite a lot more information on what you can do with Shoebot. Take a look at the wiki for a set of hacks and advanced uses such as:

  • import Shoebot as a Python module
  • use the included socketserver to have other programs control a Shoebot script
  • generate images via CGI scripts

Getting help

Installation can sometimes be tricky, to help us work out whats up paste the output of the following commands into an issue on github

python3 setup.py diagnose
python3 setup.py test

This will help us diagnose common issues more quickly.
