DrawBot Test Bench DrawBot App Builder codecov

DrawBot

DrawBot is a powerful, free application for macOS that invites you to write Python scripts to generate two-dimensional graphics. The built-in graphics primitives support rectangles, ovals, (bezier) paths, polygons, text objects, colors, transparency and much more. You can program multi-page documents and stop-motion animations. Export formats include PDF, SVG, PNG, JPEG, TIFF, animated GIF and MP4 video.

To download the latest version of the app, go to

Using DrawBot as a Python module

DrawBot can also be installed as a Python module, the app is not required.

Install

The easiest way is to use pip:

$ pip install git+https://github.com/typemytype/drawbot

To install it manually, follow these instructions:

download: https://github.com/typemytype/drawbot/archive/master.zip

run cd <path/where/you/have/downloaded/and/unzipped/drawBot> run python setup.py install

Usage

    import drawBot

    drawBot.newDrawing()
    drawBot.newPage(1000, 1000)
    drawBot.rect(10, 10, 100, 100)
    drawBot.saveImage("~/Desktop/aRect.png")
    drawBot.endDrawing()

It is adviced to start with newDrawing() and end with endDrawing(), to clear the instruction stack and remove installed fonts.
