Shoebot

Shoebot is a creative coding environment designed for making vector graphics and animations with Python. It's geared towards playful graphic exploration, creating SVG images for pen plotters, and is a great tool for automated/headless image generation.

Build Status Matrix channel

Shoebot takes a Python script describing a drawing process, and outputs a graphic in vector (SVG, PDF, PostScript) and bitmap formats (PNG). Animations can be easily created and output to video files (mp4). Scripts can describe their own GUIs for controlling variables interactively. Shoebot can also be run from the commandline and used as a Python module inside other Python scripts.

Shoebot is a port/rewrite of Nodebox 1, which is derived from DrawBot. The playful coding philosophy of Shoes also inspired its development. Thus, "Shoebot".

Documentation

Getting help

Installation is the trickiest aspect of Shoebot. If you run into trouble following the install steps, create a new issue and paste the output of the following commands:

python3 setup.py diagnose
python3 setup.py test

This will help us diagnose common issues more quickly.
