Announcing pypaint 0.3

pypaint 0.3


This module provides a light Python wrapper for libart written in C. It allows you to create static images quickly. pypaint runs on both Linux and Windows.

It only provides basic functionality at the moment - line drawing, rectangles, polygons, arcs, fill, and simple font support (using freetype 1). The images are output in PNG format.

There will be support for a pypaint backend in the next release of matplotlib.

pypaint is available at In future, there will be a homepage up at
