Luxor.@draw
— Macro@draw drawinginstructions [width] [height]
Create and preview an PNG drawing, optionally specifying width and height (the default is 600 by 600). The drawing is stored in memory, not in a file on disk.
These 'shortcut' macros are designed for convenience and to save typing. The macro @draw ⟦ body ⟧ width height
expands to:
Drawing(width, height, :png)
origin()
background("white")
sethue("black")
⟦ body ⟧
finish()
preview()
For full control of the drawing construction, use these functions directly rather than the shortcut macros.
Examples
@draw circle(O, 20, :fill)
@draw circle(O, 20, :fill) 400
@draw circle(O, 20, :fill) 400 1200
@draw begin
setline(10)
sethue("purple")
circle(O, 20, :fill)
end
@draw begin
setline(10)
sethue("purple")
circle(O, 20, :fill)
end 1200 1200
Luxor.@drawsvg
— Macro@drawsvg begin
body
end w h
Create and preview an SVG drawing. Like @draw
but using SVG format, but unlike @draw
(PNG), there is no background, by default.
Luxor.@eps
— Macro@eps drawinginstructions [width] [height] [filename]
Create and preview an EPS drawing, optionally specifying width and height (the default is 600 by 600). The file is saved in the current working directory as filename
if supplied, or luxordrawing(timestamp).eps
.
On some platforms, EPS files are converted automatically to PDF when previewed.
These 'shortcut' macros are designed for convenience and to save typing. The macro @draw ⟦ body ⟧ width height filename
expands to:
Drawing(width, height, filename)
origin()
background("white")
sethue("black")
⟦ body ⟧
finish()
preview()
For full control of the drawing construction, use these functions directly rather than the shortcut macros.
Examples
@eps circle(O, 20, :fill)
@eps circle(O, 20, :fill) 400
@eps circle(O, 20, :fill) 400 1200
@eps circle(O, 20, :fill) 400 1200 "/tmp/A0version"
@eps circle(O, 20, :fill) 400 1200 "/tmp/A0version.eps"
@eps begin
setline(10)
sethue("purple")
circle(O, 20, :fill)
end
@eps begin
setline(10)
sethue("purple")
circle(O, 20, :fill)
end 1200 1200
Luxor.@imagematrix
— Macro@imagematrix drawinginstructions [width=256] [height=256]
Create a drawing and return a matrix of the image.
This macro returns a matrix of pixels that represent the drawing produced by the vector graphics instructions. It uses the image_as_matrix()
function.
The default drawing is 256 by 256 points.
You don't need finish()
(the macro calls it), and it's not previewed by preview()
.
m = @imagematrix begin
sethue("red")
box(O, 20, 20, :fill)
end 60 60
julia> m[1220:1224] > show
ARGB32[ARGB32(0.0N0f8,0.0N0f8,0.0N0f8,0.0N0f8),
ARGB32(1.0N0f8,0.0N0f8,0.0N0f8,1.0N0f8),
ARGB32(1.0N0f8,0.0N0f8,0.0N0f8,1.0N0f8),
ARGB32(1.0N0f8,0.0N0f8,0.0N0f8,1.0N0f8),
ARGB32(1.0N0f8,0.0N0f8,0.0N0f8,1.0N0f8)]
If, for some strange reason you want to draw the matrix as another Luxor drawing again, use code such as this:
m = @imagematrix begin
sethue("red")
box(O, 20, 20, :fill)
sethue("blue")
box(O, 10, 40, :fill)
end 60 60
function convertmatrixtocolors(m)
return convert.(Colors.RGBA, m)
end
function drawimagematrix(m)
d = Drawing(500, 500, "/tmp/temp.png")
origin()
w, h = size(m)
t = Tiler(500, 500, w, h)
mi = convertmatrixtocolors(m)
@show mi[30, 30]
for (pos, n) in t
c = mi[t.currentrow, t.currentcol]
setcolor(c)
box(pos, t.tilewidth 1, t.tileheight  1, :fill)
end
finish()
return d
end
drawimagematrix(m)
Transparency
The default value for the cells in an image matrix is transparent black. (Luxor's default color is opaque black.)
julia> @imagematrix begin
end 2 2
2×2 reinterpret(ARGB32, ::Array{UInt32,2}):
ARGB32(0.0,0.0,0.0,0.0) ARGB32(0.0,0.0,0.0,0.0)
ARGB32(0.0,0.0,0.0,0.0) ARGB32(0.0,0.0,0.0,0.0)
Setting the background to a partially or completely transparent value may give unexpected results:
julia> @imagematrix begin
background(1, 0.5, 0.0, 0.5) # semitransparent orange
end 2 2
2×2 reinterpret(ARGB32, ::Array{UInt32,2}):
ARGB32(0.502,0.251,0.0,0.502) ARGB32(0.502,0.251,0.0,0.502)
ARGB32(0.502,0.251,0.0,0.502) ARGB32(0.502,0.251,0.0,0.502)
here the semitransparent orange color has been partially applied to the transparent background.
julia> @imagematrix begin
sethue(1., 0.5, 0.0)
paint()
end 2 2
2×2 reinterpret(ARGB32, ::Array{UInt32,2}):
ARGB32(1.0,0.502,0.0,1.0) ARGB32(1.0,0.502,0.0,1.0)
ARGB32(1.0,0.502,0.0,1.0) ARGB32(1.0,0.502,0.0,1.0)
picks up the default alpha of 1.0.

Base.:*
— Method*(m::Matrix, pt::Point)
Transform a point pt
by the 3×3 matrix m
.
julia> M = [2 0 0; 0 2 0; 0 0 1]
3×3 Matrix{Int64}:
2 0 0
0 2 0
0 0 1
julia> M * Point(20, 20)
Point(40.0, 40.0)
To convert between Cairo matrices (6element Vector{Float64}) to a 3×3 Matrix, use cairotojuliamatrix()
and juliatocairomatrix()
.
Base.convert
— Methodconvert(Point, bbox::BoundingBox)
Convert a BoundingBox to a fourpoint clockwise polygon.
convert(Vector{Point}, BoundingBox())
Base.hcat
— Methodhcat(D::Drawing...; valign=:top, hpad=0, clip=true)
Create a new SVG drawing by horizontal concatenation of SVG drawings. If drawings have different height, the valign
option can be used in order to define how to align. The hpad
argument can be used to add padding between concatenated images.
The clip
argument is a boolean for whether the concatenated images should be clipped before concatenation. Note that drawings sometimes have elements that go beyond it's margins, and they only show when the image is drawn in a larger canvas. The clip
argument ensures that these elements are not drawn in the concatenated drawing.
Example:
d1 = Drawing(200, 100, :svg)
origin()
circle(O, 60, :fill)
finish()
d2 = Drawing(200, 200, :svg)
rect(O, 200, 200, :fill)
finish()
hcat(d1, d2; hpad = 10, valign = :top, clip = true)

Compare points.
Base.rand
— Methodrand(bbox::BoundingBox)
Return a random Point
that lies inside bbox
.
Base.vcat
— Methodvcat(D::Drawing...; halign=:left, vpad=0, clip=true)
Creates a new SVG drawing by vertical concatenation of SVG drawings. If drawings have different widths, the halign
option can be used in order to define how to align. The vpad
argument can be used to add padding between concatenated images.
The clip
argument is a boolean for whether the concatenated images should be clipped before concatenation. Note that drawings sometimes have elements that go beyond it's margins, and they only show when the image is drawn in a larger canvas. The clip
argument ensures that these elements are not drawn in the concatenated drawing.
Example:
d1 = Drawing(200, 100, :svg)
origin()
circle(O, 60, :fill)
finish()
d2 = Drawing(200, 200, :svg)
rect(O, 200, 200, :fill)
finish()
vcat(d1, d2; vpad = 10, halign = :left, clip = true)

.
Luxor._adjust_background_rects
— Method_adjust_background_rects(buffer::UInt8[]; addmarker = true)
See issue https://github.com/JuliaGraphics/Luxor.jl/issues/150 for discussion details.
Setting backgrounds in a recording surface (:rec) and creating a svg from it result in elements as
<rect x="0" y="0" width="16777215" height="16777215" .../>
independent of an existing transformation matrix (e.g. set with origin(...) or snapshot with a crop bounding box). An existing transformation matrix manifests in the svg file as
<use xlink:href="#surface199" transform="matrix(3 1 1 3 30 40)"/>
which is applied to every element including the background rects. This transformation needs to be inversed for the background rects which is added in this function.
If addmarker
is not set to false, a class property is set as marker:
<rect class="luxor_adjusted" x="0" y="0" width="16777215" height="16777215" .../>
Luxor._betweenpoly
— Method_betweenpoly(loop1, loop2, k;
samples = 100,
easingfunction = easingflat)
Find a simple polygon between the two simple polygons loop1
and loop2
corresponding to k
, where 0.0 < k < 1.0
.
By default, easingfunction = easingflat
, so the intermediate steps are linearly spaced. If you use another easing function, intermediate steps are determined by the value of the easing function at k
.
Used by polymorph()
.
Because polysample()
can treat the polygon as open or closed (with different results), you can specify how the sampling is done here, with the closed=
keyword:
closed = true > polygons are sampled as closed
closed = false > polygons are sampled as open
closed = (true, false) > first polygon is sampled as closed, second as open
Luxor._drawing_indices
— MethodLuxor._drawing_indices()
Get a UnitRange over all available indices of drawings.
With Luxor you can work on multiple drawings simultaneously. Each drawing is stored in an internal array. The first drawing is stored at index 1 when you start a drawing with Drawing(...)
. To start a second drawing you call Luxor._set_next_drawing_index()
, which returns the new index. Calling another Drawing(...)
stores the second drawing at this new index. Luxor._set_next_drawing_index()
will return and set the next available index which is available for a new drawing. This can be a new index at the end of drawings, or, if you already finished a drawing with finish()
, the index of this finished drawing. To specify on which drawing the next graphics command should be applied you call Luxor._set_drawing_index(i)
. All successive Luxor commands work on this drawing. With Luxor._get_drawing_index()
you get the current active drawing index.
Multiple drawings is especially helpful for interactive graphics with live windows like MiniFB.
Example:
using Luxor
Drawing(500, 500, "1.svg")
origin()
setcolor("red")
circle(Point(0, 0), 100, action = :fill)
Luxor._drawing_indices() # returns 1:1
Luxor._get_next_drawing_index() # returns 2 but doesn't change current drawing
Luxor._set_next_drawing_index() # returns 2 and sets current drawing to it
Drawing(500, 500, "2.svg")
origin()
setcolor("green")
circle(Point(0, 0), 100, action = :fill)
Luxor._drawing_indices() # returns 1:2
Luxor._set_drawing_index(1) # returns 1
finish()
preview() # presents the red circle 1.svg
Luxor._drawing_indices() # returns 1:2
Luxor._set_next_drawing_index() # returns 1 because drawing 1 was finished before
Drawing(500, 500, "3.svg")
origin()
setcolor("blue")
circle(Point(0, 0), 100, action = :fill)
finish()
preview() # presents the blue circle 3.svg
Luxor._set_drawing_index(2) # returns 2
finish()
preview() # presents the green circle 2.svg
Luxor._drawing_indices() # returns 1:2, but all are finished
Luxor._set_drawing_index(1) # returns 1
preview() # presents the blue circle 3.svg again
Luxor._set_drawing_index(10) # returns 1 as 10 does not existing
Luxor._get_drawing_index() # returns 1
Luxor._get_next_drawing_index() # returns 1, because 1 was finished
Luxor._empty_neighbourhood
— Methodemptyneighbourhood(sample, w, h, cellsize, d, points, grid)
Uses entries in grid
to check whether the sample
point is more than d
units away from any other point in points
.
The region we're analyzing lies between the origin and Point(w, h)
`.
Luxor._get_drawing_index
— MethodLuxor._get_drawing_index()
Returns the index of the current drawing. If there isn't any drawing yet returns 1.
Luxor._get_next_drawing_index
— MethodLuxor._get_next_drawing_index()
Returns the next available drawing index. This can either be a new index or an existing index where a finished (finish()
) drawing was stored before.
Luxor._has_drawing
— MethodLuxor._has_drawing()
Returns true if there is a current drawing available or finished, otherwise false.
Luxor._set_drawing_index
— MethodLuxor._set_drawing_index(i::Int)
Set the active drawing for successive graphic commands to index i if exist. if index i doesn't exist, the current drawing is unchanged.
Returns the current drawing index.
Example:
next_index=5
if Luxor._set_drawing_index(next_index) == next_index
# do some additional graphics on the existing drawing
...
else
@warn "Drawing "*string(next_index)*" doesn't exist"
endif
Luxor._set_next_drawing_index
— MethodLuxor._set_next_drawing_index()
Set the current drawing to the next available drawing index. This can either be a new index or an existing index where a finished (finish()
) drawing was stored before.
Returns the current drawing index.
Luxor._split_string_into_head_mid_tail
— Method_split_string_into_head_mid_tail(s::String,id::String)
splits s into head, mid and tail string. Example:
s="head...<g id="\$id">...</g>...tail"
results in
head="head..."
mid="<g id="\$id">...</g>"
tail="...tail"
Luxor.add_mesh_patch
— Functionadd_mesh_patch(pattern::Mesh, bezierpath::BezierPath,
colors=Array{Colors.Colorant, 1})
Add a new patch to the mesh pattern in pattern
.
The first three or four elements of the supplied bezierpath
define the three or four sides of the mesh shape.
The colors
array define the color of each corner point. Colors are reused if necessary. At least one color should be supplied.
Use setmesh()
to select the mesh, which will be used to fill shapes.
Luxor.add_mesh_patch
— Functionadd_mesh_patch(pattern::Mesh, plist::Array{Point}, colors=Array{Colors.Colorant, 1})
Add a new patch to the mesh pattern in pattern
.
The first three or four sides of the supplied points
polygon define the three or four sides of the mesh shape.
The colors
array define the color of each corner point. Colors are reused if necessary. At least one color should be supplied.
Luxor.addstop
— Methodaddstop(b::Blend, offset, col)
addstop(b::Blend, offset, (r, g, b, a))
addstop(b::Blend, offset, string)
Add a color stop to a blend. The offset specifies the location along the blend's 'control vector', which varies between 0 (beginning of the blend) and 1 (end of the blend). For linear blends, the control vector is from the start point to the end point. For radial blends, the control vector is from any point on the start circle, to the corresponding point on the end circle.
Examples:
blendredblue = blend(Point(0, 0), 0, Point(0, 0), 1)
addstop(blendredblue, 0, setcolor(sethue("red")..., .2))
addstop(blendredblue, 1, setcolor(sethue("blue")..., .2))
addstop(blendredblue, 0.5, sethue(randomhue()...))
addstop(blendredblue, 0.5, setcolor(randomcolor()...))
Luxor.anglethreepoints
— Methodanglethreepoints(p1::Point, p2::Point, p3::Point)
Find the angle formed by two lines defined by three points.
If the angle is less than π, the line heads to the left.
Luxor.animate
— Methodanimate(movie::Movie, scene::Scene; creategif=false, framerate=30)
Create the movie defined in movie
by rendering the frames define in scene
.
Luxor.animate
— Methodanimate(movie::Movie, scenelist::Array{Scene, 1};
creategif=false,
framerate=30,
pathname="",
tempdirectory="",
usenewffmpeg=true)
Create the movie defined in movie
by rendering the frames define in the array of scenes in scenelist
.
If creategif
is true
, the function runs the ffmpeg
utility on the resulting frames to build a GIF animation. This will be stored in the pathname
keyword argument (an existing file will be overwritten; use a ".gif" suffix), or in (movietitle).gif
in a temporary directory. The FFMPEG package is loaded with Luxor,
In suitable environments, the resulting animation is displayed in the Plots window.
Example
animate(bang, [
Scene(bang, backdrop, 0:200),
Scene(bang, frame1, 0:200, easingfunction=easeinsine)],
creategif=true,
pathname="/tmp/animationtest.gif")
The usenewffmpeg
option, true
by default, uses singlepass palette generation and more complex filtering provided by recent versions of the ffmpeg
utility, mainly to cope with transparent backgrounds. If set to false
, the behavior is the same as in previous versions of Luxor.
If you prefer to use the FFMPEG.jl package and run ffmpeg
with your own options  to create an MPF file, for exxample  use code like this:
using Luxor
using FFMPEG
...
tempdirectory = "/tmp/temp/"
animate(movie, [
Scene(movie, frame, 1:50)
],
creategif=false,
tempdirectory=tempdirectory)
FFMPEG.ffmpeg_exe(`r 30 f image2 i $(tempdirectory)/%10d.png c:v libx264 r 30 pix_fmt yuv420p y /tmp/animation.mp4`)
Luxor.arc
— Methodarc(centerpoint::Point, radius, angle1, angle2; action=:none)
arc(centerpoint::Point, radius, angle1, angle2, action)
Add an arc to the current path from angle1
to angle2
going clockwise, centered at centerpoint
.
Angles are defined relative to the xaxis, positive clockwise.
See also: carc()
, arc2r()
, arc2sagitta()
, ...
Luxor.arc2r
— Method arc2r(c1::Point, p2::Point, p3::Point; action=:none)
arc2r(c1::Point, p2::Point, p3::Point, action)
Add a circular arc centered at c1
that starts at p2
and ends at p3
, going clockwise, to the current path.
c1
p2
really determines the radius. If p3

Luxor.arc2sagitta
— Methodarc2sagitta(p1::Point, p2::Point, s;
action=:none)
Make a clockwise arc starting at p1
and ending at p2
that reaches a height of s
, the sagitta, at the middle, and add it to the current path.
Return tuple of the center point and the radius of the arc.
Luxor.arrow
— Functionarrow(start::Point, finish::Point, height::Vector, action=:stroke;
keyword arguments...)
Draw a Bézier arrow between start
and finish
, with control points defined to fit in an imaginary box defined by the two supplied height
values (see bezierfrompoints()
). If the height values are different signs, the arrow will change direction on its way.
Keyword arguments are the same as arrow(pt1, pt2, pt3, pt4)
.
Example
arrow(pts[1], pts[end], [15, 15],
decoration = 0.5,
decorate = () > text(string(pts[1])))
Luxor.arrow
— Functionarrow(start::Point, C1::Point, C2::Point, finish::Point, action=:stroke;
linewidth = 1.0,
arrowheadlength = 10,
arrowheadangle = pi/8,
startarrow = false,
finisharrow = true,
decoration = 0.5,
decorate = nothing
arrowheadfunction = nothing)
Draw a Bezier curved arrow, from start
to finish
, with control points C1
and C2
. Arrow heads can be added/hidden by changing startarrow
and finisharrow
options.
The decorate
keyword argument accepts a function that can execute code at one or more locations on the arrow's shaft. The inherited graphic environment is centered at each point on the shaft given by scalar or vector decoration
, and the xaxis is aligned with the direction of the curve at that point.
Example
This code draws an arrow head that's filled with orange and outlined in green.
function myarrowheadfunction(originalendpoint, newendpoint, shaftangle)
@layer begin
setline(5)
translate(newendpoint)
rotate(shaftangle)
sethue("orange")

end
Luxor.arrow
— Methodarrow(centerpos::Point, radius, startangle, endangle;
linewidth = 1.0,
arrowheadlength = 10,
arrowheadangle = π/8,
decoration = 0.5,
decorate = nothing,
arrowheadfunction = nothing,
clockwise = true)
Draw a curved arrow, an arc centered at centerpos
starting at startangle
and ending at endangle
with an arrowhead at the end. Angles are measured clockwise from the positive xaxis.
Arrows don't use the current linewidth setting (setline()
); you can specify the linewidth.
The decorate
keyword argument accepts a zeroargument function that can execute code at one or more locations on the arrow's shaft. The inherited graphic environment is centered at points on the shaft between 0 and 1 given by scalar or vector decoration
, and the xaxis is aligned with the direction of the curve at that point.
A triangular arrowhead is drawn by default. But you can pass a function to the arrowheadfunction
keyword argument that accepts three arguments: the shaft end, the arrow head end, and the shaft angle. Thsi allows you to draw any shape arrowhead.
Luxor.arrow
— Methodarrow(startpoint::Point, endpoint::Point;
linewidth = 1.0,
arrowheadlength = 10,
arrowheadangle = pi/8,
decoration = 0.5 or range(),
decorate = nothing,
arrowheadfunction = nothing)
Draw a line between two points and add an arrowhead at the end. The arrowhead length will be the length of the side of the arrow's head, and the arrowhead angle is the angle between the sloping side of the arrowhead and the arrow's shaft.
Arrows don't use the current linewidth setting (setline()
), and defaults to 1, but you can specify another value. It doesn't need stroking/filling, the shaft is stroked and the head filled with the current color.
Decoration
The decorate
keyword argument accepts a function with zero arguments that can execute code at one or more locations on the arrow's shaft. The inherited graphic environment is centered at each point on the shaft between 0 and 1 given by scalar or vector decoration
, and the xaxis is aligned with the direction of the curve at that point.
Arrowheads
A triangular arrowhead is drawn by default. But you can pass a function to the arrowheadfunction
keyword argument that accepts three arguments: the shaft end, the arrow head end, and the shaft angle. Thsi allows you to draw any shape arrowhead.
Example
function redbluearrow(shaftendpoint, endpoint, shaftangle)
@layer begin
sethue("red")
sidept1 = shaftendpoint + polar(10, shaftangle + π/2 )
sidept2 = shaftendpoint  polar(10, shaftangle + π/2)
poly([sidept1, endpoint, sidept2], :fill)
sethue("blue")
poly([sidept1, endpoint, sidept2], :stroke, close=false)
end
end
@drawsvg begin
background("white")
arrow(O, O + (120, 120),
linewidth=4,
arrowheadlength=40,
arrowheadangle=π/7,
arrowheadfunction = redbluearrow)
arrow(O, 100, 3π/2, π,
linewidth=4,
arrowheadlength=20,
clockwise=false,arrowheadfunction=redbluearrow)
end 800 250
Luxor.arrowhead
— Functionarrowhead(target[, action=:fill];
shaftangle=0,
headlength=10,
headangle=pi/8)
Draw an arrow head. The arrowhead length will be the length of the side of the arrow's head, and the arrowhead angle is the angle between the sloping side of the arrowhead and the arrow's shaft.

`. Previouslydrawn graphics will be wholly or partly obscured depending on the opacity of the color.
Returns a tuple (r, g, b, a)
of the color that was used to paint the background.
The macros @png
, @draw
, and @svg
use background("white")
as part of the drawing setup.
Examples:
background("antiquewhite")
background(1, 0.0, 1.0)
background(1, 0.0, 1.0, .5)
background(Luxor.Colors.RGB(0, 1, 0))

background(RGB(0, 1, 0))
background(RGBA(0, 1, 0))
background(RGBA(0, 1, 0, .5))
background(Luv(20, 20, 30))
If you don't specify a background color for a PNG drawing, the background will be transparent. You can set a partly or completely transparent background for PNG files by passing a color with an alpha value, such as this 'transparent black':
background(RGBA(0, 0, 0, 0))
or
background(0, 0, 0, 0)
Returns a tuple (r, g, b, a)
of the color that was used to paint the background.
Luxor.barchart
— Methodbarchart(values;
boundingbox = BoundingBox(O + (250, 120), O + (250, 120)),

margin = 5,
border=false,
labels=false,
labelfunction = (values, i, lowpos, highpos, barwidth, scaledvalue) > begin
label(string(values[i]), :n, highpos, offset=10)
end,
barfunction = (values, i, lowpos, highpos, barwidth, scaledvalue) > begin
@layer begin
setline(barwidth)
line(lowpos, highpos, :stroke)
end
end)
Draw a barchart where each bar is the height of a value in the values
array. The bars will be scaled to fit in a bounding box.
Text labels are drawn if the keyword labels=true
.
Extended help
The function returns a vector of points; each is the bottom center of a bar.
Draw a Fibonacci sequence as a barchart:
fib(n) = n > 2 ? fib(n  1) + fib(n  2) : 1
fibs = fib.(1:15)
@draw begin
fontsize(12)
barchart(fibs, labels=true)
end
To control the drawing of the text and bars, define functions that process the end points:
mybarfunction(values, i, lowpos, highpos, barwidth, scaledvalue)
mylabelfunction(values, i, lowpos, highpos, barwidth, scaledvalue)
and pass them like this:
barchart(vals, barfunction=mybarfunction)
barchart(vals, labelfunction=mylabelfunction)
function myprologfunction(values, basepoint, minbarrange, maxbarrange, barchartheight)
@layer begin
setline(0.2)

— Methodbeziercurvature(t, A::Point, A1::Point, B1::Point, B::Point)
Return the curvature of the Bézier curve at t
([01]), given start and end points A and B, and control points A1 and B1. The value (kappa) will typically be a value between 0.001 and 0.001 for points with coordinates in the 100500 range.
κ(t) is the curvature of the curve at point t, which for a parametric planar curve is:
\[\begin{equation} \kappa = \frac{\mid \dot{x}\ddot{y}\dot{y}\ddot{x}\mid} {(\dot{x}^2 + \dot{y}^2)^{\frac{3}{2}}} \end{equation}\]
The radius of curvature, or the radius of an osculating circle at a point, is 1/κ(t). Values of 1/κ will typically be in the range 1000 to 1000 for points with coordinates in the 100500 range.
TODO Fix overshoot...

Luxor.blendadjust
— Functionblendadjust(ablend, center::Point, xscale, yscale, rot=0)
Modify an existing blend by scaling, translating, and rotating it so that it will fill a shape properly even if the position of the shape is nowhere near the original location of the blend's definition.

)
blendgoldmagenta = blend(
Point(0, 0), 0, # first circle center and radius
Point(0, 0), 1, # second circle center and radius
"gold",
"magenta"
)
you can use it in a shape that's 100 units across and centered at pos

Draw the path in path
starting at the beginning and stopping at k
between 0 and 1. So if k
is 0.5, half the path is drawn.

, and curve()
with the storepath()
function.
By default, startnewpath=true
, which starts a new path, discarding any existing path contents.
Luxor.easeincirc
— Methodeaseincirc(t, b, c, d)
circular easing in  accelerating from zero velocity
Luxor.easeincubic
— Methodeaseincubic(t, b, c, d)
cubic easing in  accelerating from zero velocity
Luxor.easeinexpo
— Methodeaseinexpo(t, b, c, d)
exponential easing in  accelerating from zero velocity
Luxor.easeinoutbezier
— Functioneaseinoutbezier(t, b, c, d, cpt1, cpt2)
This easing function takes six arguments, the usual t
, b
, c
, and d
, but also two points. These are the normalized control points of a Bezier curve drawn between Point(0, 0)
to Point(1.0, 1.0)
. The y
value of the Bezier is the eased value for t
.
In your frame()
generating function, if a Scene specifies the easeinoutbezier
easing function, you can use this:
...
lineareasing = rescale(framenumber, 1, scene.framerange.stop)
beziereasing = scene.easingfunction(lineareasing, 0, 1, 1,
Point(0.25, 0.25), Point(0.75, 0.75))
...
These two control points lie on the line between 0/0
and 1/1
, so it's equivalent to a linear easing (lineartween()
or easingflat
).
However, in the next example, the two control points define a wavelike curve that changes direction before changing back. When animating with this easing function, an object will 'go retrograde' for a while.
lineareasing = rescale(framenumber, 1, scene.framerange.stop)
beziereasing = scene.easingfunction(lineareasing, 0, 1, 1,
Point(0.01, 1.99), Point(0.99, 1.5))

When the origin is moved to 400/400, it looks like this:
getmatrix() = [1.0, 0.0, 0.0, 1.0, 400.0, 400.0]
To reset the 'matrix' to the original:
setmatrix([1.0, 0.0, 0.0, 1.0, 0.0, 0.0])
To modify the current 'matrix' by multiplying it by a 6 element 'matrix' a
, see transform(a::Array)

The default coordinate system for Luxor drawings is that the top left corner is 0/0. If you use origin()
(or the various @
macro shortcuts), everything moves to the center of the drawing, and this function with the default centered
option assumes an origin()
function. If you choose centered=false
, the returned coordinates will be relative to the top left corner of the drawing.

Make a hypotrochoid with short line segments, and add it to the current path. (Like a Spirograph.) The curve is traced by a point attached to a circle of radius r
rolling around the inside of a fixed circle of radius R
, where the point is a distance d
from the center of the interior circle. Things get interesting if you supply nonintegral values.
Special cases include the hypocycloid, if d

julia> initnoise(); noise(1)
0.7453148982810598
julia> initnoise(); noise(1)
0.7027617067916981
If you provide an integer seed, it will be used to seed Random.seed!()
` when the noise code is initialized:
julia> initnoise(41); noise(1) # yesterday
0.7134000046640385
julia> initnoise(41); noise(1) # today
0.7134000046640385
If you need to control which type of random number generator is used, you can provide your own and it will be used instead of the default Julia implementation.

and ip2
. If the circles don't intersect at all, or one is completely inside the other, flag
is false
and the points are both Point(0, 0).
Use intersection2circles()
to find the area of two overlapping circles.
In the pure world of maths, it must be possible that two circles 'kissing' only have a single intersection point. At present, this unromantic function reports that two kissing circles have no intersection points.

If crossingonly == true
the point of intersection must lie on both lines.
If crossingonly == false
the point of intersection can be where the lines meet if extended almost to 'infinity'.
Accordng to this function, collinear, overlapping, and parallel lines never intersect. Ie, the line segments might be collinear but have no points in common, or the lines segments might be collinear and have many points in common, or the line segments might be collinear and one is entirely contained within the other.
If the lines are collinear and share a point in common, that is the intersection point.

extended = false,
atol = 10E5)
Return true
if the point pt
lies on a straight line between pt1
and pt2
.
If extended
is false (the default) the point must lie on the line segment between pt1
and pt2
. If extended
is true, the point lies on the line if extended in either direction.
Luxor.ispointonpoly
— Methodispointonpoly(pt::Point, pgon;
atol=10E5)
Return true
if pt
lies on the polygon pgon.

innercircleratio=0.65,
action=:fill)
Draw the three Julia circles ("dots") in color centered at the origin.
The distance of the centers of each circle from the origin is radius
.
The optional keyword argument outercircleratio
(default 0.75) determines the radius of each circle relative to the main radius. So the default is to draw circles of radius 75 points around a larger circle of radius 100.
Return the three centerpoints.
The innercircleratio
(default 0.65) no longer does anything useful (it used to draw the smaller circles) and will be deprecated.
Luxor.julialogo
— Methodjulialogo(;
action=:fill,
color=true,
bodycolor=colorant"black",
centered=false)
Draw the Julia logo. The default action is to fill the logo and use the colors:
julialogo()
If color
is false
, the bodycolor
color is used for the logo.
The function uses the current drawing state (position, scale, etc).
The centered
keyword lets you center the logo at its mathematical center, but the optical center might lie somewhere else  it's difficult to position well due to its asymmetric design.
To use the logo as a clipping mask:
julialogo(action=:clip)
(In this case the color
setting is automatically ignored.)
To obtain a stroked (outlined) version:
julialogo(action=:path)
sethue("red")
strokepath()
TODO Return something more useful than a Boolean.

, :SW
, :NW
to position the label relative to that point.
label("text") # positions text at North (above), relative to the origin
label("text", :S) # positions text at South (below), relative to the origin
label("text", :S, pt) # positions text South of pt
label("text", :N, pt, offset=20) # positions text North of pt, offset by 20
The default offset is 5 units.
If leader
is true, draw a line as well.
leaderoffsts
uses normalized fractions (see between()
) to specify the gap between the designated points and the start and end of the lines.
TODO: Negative offsets don't give good results.

— Functionlabel(txt::T where T <: AbstractString, direction::Float64, pos::Point=O;
offset=5,
leader=false,
leaderoffsets=[0.0, 1.0])

Luxor.markcells
— Methodmarkcells(t::Union{Tiler, Table}, cells;
action = :stroke,
func = nothing)
Mark the cells of Tiler/Table t
in the cells
.
By default a box is drawn around the cell using the current settings and filled or stroked according to action

, width
, height
, and number
.

, y
, z
, and w
values. An x
value on its own produces 1D noise, x
and y
make 2D noise, and so on.
The detail
value is an integer (>= 1) specifying how many octaves of noise you want.
The persistence
value, typically between 0.0 and 1.0, controls how quickly the amplitude diminishes for each successive octave for values of detail
greater than 1.
Luxor.offsetlinesegment
— Methodoffsetlinesegment(p1, p2, p3, d1, d2)
Given three points, find another 3 points that are offset by d1 at the start and d2 at the end.

.
Luxor.offsetpoly
— Methodoffsetpoly(plist, shape::Function)
Return a closed polygon that is offset from and encloses an polyline.
The incoming set of points plist
is treated as an polyline, and another set of points is created, which form a closed polygon offset from the source poly.
There must be at least 4 points in the polyline.
This method for offsetpoly()
treats the list of points as n
vertices connected with n  1
lines. (The other method offsetpoly(plist, d)
treats the list of points as n
vertices connected with n
lines.)
The supplied function determines the width of the line. f(0, θ)
gives the width at the start (the slope of the curve at that point is supplied in θ), f(1, θ)
provides the width at the end, and f(n, θ)
is the width of point n/l
.
Examples
This example draws a tilde, with the ends starting at 20 (10 + 10) units wide, swelling to 50 (10 + 10 + 15 + 15) in the middle, as f(0.5) = 25.
f(x, θ) = 10 + 15sin(x * π)
sinecurve = [Point(50x, 50sin(x)) for x in π:π/24:π]
pgon = offsetpoly(sinecurve, f)

Luxor.offsetpoly
— Methodoffsetpoly(plist;
startoffset = 10,
endoffset = 10,
easingfunction = lineartween)
Return a closed polygon that is offset from and encloses an open polygon.
The incoming set of points plist
is treated as an open polygon, and another set of points is created, which form a polygon lying ...offset
units away from the source poly.
This method for offsetpoly()
treats the list of points as n
vertices connected with n  1
lines. It allows you to vary the offset from the start of the line to the end.
The other method offsetpoly(plist, d)
treats the list of points as n
vertices connected with n
lines.
Extended help
This function accepts a keyword argument that allows you to control the offset using a function, using the easing functionality built in to Luxor. By default the function is lineartween()
, so the offset changes linearly between the startoffset
and the endoffset
. The function:
f(a, b, c, d) = 2sin((a * π))
runs from 0 to 2 and back as a
runs from 0 to 1. The offsets are scaled by this amount.
Luxor.offsetpoly
— Methodoffsetpoly(plist::Array{Point, 1}, d) where T<:Number
Return a polygon that is offset from a polygon by d
units.
The incoming set of points plist
is treated as a polygon, and another set of points is created, which form a polygon lying d
units away from the source poly.
Polygon offsetting is a topic on which people have written PhD theses and published academic papers, so this short braindead routine will give good results for simple polygons up to a point (!). There are a number of issues to be aware of:
very short lines tend to make the algorithm 'flip' and produce larger lines
small polygons that are counterclockwise and larger offsets may make the new polygon appear the wrong side of the original
very sharp vertices will produce even sharper offsets, as the calculated intersection point veers off to infinity
duplicated adjacent points might cause the routine to scratch its head and wonder how to draw a line parallel to them
Luxor.origin
— Methodorigin(pt:Point)
Reset the current position, scale, and orientation, then move the 0/0
position to pt
.
Luxor.origin
— Methodorigin()
Reset the current position, scale, and orientation, and then set the 0/0 origin to the center of the drawing (otherwise it will stay at the top left corner, the default).
You can refer to the 0/0 point as O
. (O = Point(0, 0)
),
Luxor.paint
— Methodpaint()
Paint the current clip region with the current settings.
Luxor.pathlength
— Methodpathlength(path::Path;
steps=10)
Return the length of a Path.
The steps
parameter is used when approximating the length of any curve (Bezier) sections.
Luxor.pathsample
— Methodpathsample(path::Path, spacing;
steps=10)
Return a new Path that resamples the path
such that each line and curve of the original path is divided into sections that are approximately spacing
units long.
The steps
parameter is used when approximating the length of any curve (Bezier) sections. For measurement purposes, each Bezier curve is divided in steps
straight lines; the error will be smaller for flatter curves and larger for more curvy ones.
Luxor.pathtobezierpaths
— Methodpathtobezierpaths(
; flat=true)
Convert the current Cairo path (which may consist of one or more paths) to an array of Bézier paths, each of which is an array of BezierPathSegments. Each path segment is a tuple of four points. A straight line is converted to a Bézier segment in which the control points are set to be the same as the end points.
If flat
is true, use getpathflat()
rather than getpath()
.
Example
This code draws the BezierPathSegments and shows the control points as "handles", like a vectorediting program might.

Luxor.pie
— Methodpie(radius, startangle, endangle;
action=:none)
Make a pie shape centered at the origin, and add it to the current path.
Luxor.placeeps
— Methodplaceeps(epsfile; log=false)
This function loads and interprets an EPS file previously exported by Cairo. Commands are 'applied' to the current drawing.
The primary intention is to extract some geometry  points and curves, etc.  from an EPS vector graphic.
This function reads only 'Cairoflavoured' EPS files. Every application that exports EPS files defines its own chosen set of PostScript functions in a prolog. There's no standard. The 'Cairoflavoured' EPS prolog is hardcoded into EPS files exported from Cairo so it's predictable, but other EPS exporters define their own flavour, defining and calling who knows what PostScript functions. So it's unlikely that EPS files from other sources will be successfully processed with this function.
Also note:
ignores clipping for now; I'm not sure how the Cairo>EPS>Cairo transformations work yet
ignores
rectfill
` commands for now  I think these are often used just for the initial BoundingBoxes/clipping, but if they're used matrix transforms they'll need interpreting somehowignores blends and gradients, embedded images, embedded fonts, among many other things...
Use log
to print the commands to the REPL as well as execute them.
Examples
@draw begin
translate(boxtopleft())
Luxor.placeeps("/tmp/julia.eps")
end
You can convert an SVG file to EPS by reading the SVG into Luxor, saving as EPS, then placing that saved EPS file onto a new drawing:
svgfile = readsvg("julia.svg")
@eps begin
placeimage(svgfile, centered = true)
end 800 500 "/tmp/julia.eps"
@draw begin
translate(boxtopleft())
placeeps("/tmp/julia.eps")
end
If you want to put the list of Luxor commands in a text file for pasting into another file, you could try this (Julia v.1.7 and up). Let's say you have an SVG called julia.svg
.
# load an SVG and save as EPS
@eps begin
svgf = readsvg("julia.svg")
placeimage(svgf, centered = true)
end 500 500 "/tmp/t.eps"
# convert EPS to Luxor commands
redirect_stdio(stdout = "/tmp/output.jl") do
placeeps("/tmp/t.eps", log = true)
end
# include Luxor commands and save as a new SVG:
@svg begin
translate(boxtopleft())
include("/tmp/output.jl")
end 500 500 "/tmp/julia.svg"

.
Luxor.polycentroid

You could test the point using isinside()
.
Luxor.polyclip
— Methodpolyclip(s, c)

Luxor.polyhull
— Methodpolyhull(ptspgon::Array{Point,1})
Find all points in pts
that form a convex hull around the points in pts
, and return them.
This uses the Graham Scan algorithm.
Luxor.polyintersect
— Methodpolyintersect(pgon1::AbstractArray{Point, 1}, pgon2::AbstractArray{Point, 1};
closed=true)
Return an array (possibly empty) containing the polygon(s) that define the intersection between the two polygons, pgon1
and pgon2
.
The pgon1
and pgon2
polygons must not have holes, and cannot be selfintersecting.
Luxor.polyintersectconvex
— Methodpolyintersectconvex(p1::AbstractArray{Point,1}, p2::AbstractArray{Point,1})
Use polyintersect()
.
Luxor.polymorph
— Methodpolymorph(pgon1::Array{Array{Point,1}}, pgon2::Array{Array{Point,1}}, k;
samples = 100,
easingfunction = easingflat,
kludge = true
closed = true)
"morph" is to gradually change from one thing to another. This function changes one polygon into another.
It returns an array of polygons, [p_1, p_2, p_3, ... ]
, where each polygon p_n
is the intermediate shape between the corresponding shape in pgon1[1...n]
and pgon2[1...n]
at k
, where 0.0 < k < 1.0
. If k ≈ 0.0
, the pgon1[1...n]
is returned, and if `k ≈ 1.0
, pgon2[1...n]
is returned.
pgon1
and pgon2
can be either simple polygons with three or more points each, or arrays of one or more polygonal shapes (eg as created by pathtopoly()
). For example, pgon1
might consist of two polygonal shapes, a square and a triangular shaped hole inside; pgon2
might be a triangular shape with a square hole.
It makes sense for both arguments to have the same number of polygonal shapes. If one has more than another, some shapes would be lost when it morphs. But the suggestivelynamed kludge
keyword argument, when set to (the default) true, tries to compensate for this.
By default, easingfunction = easingflat
, so the intermediate steps are linear. If you use another easing function, intermediate steps are determined by the value of the easing function at k
.
Because polysample()
can treat the polygon as open or closed (with different results), you can specify how the sampling is done here, with the closed=
keyword:
closed = true > polygons are sampled as closed
closed = false > polygons are sampled as open
closed = (true, false) > first polygon is sampled as closed, second as open
This function isn't very efficient, because it copies the polygons and resamples them.
TODO : experimental, can surely be improved.

Examples
This simple morph between a small square and a larger octagon is controlled by the easing function easeinoutinversequad
, which slows down around the middle of the transition.
Only the first shape of the returned polygon array is needed.
pgon1 = ngon(O, 30, 4, 0, vertices = true)
pgon2 = ngon(O, 220, 8, 0, vertices = true)
for i in 0:0.1:1.0
poly(first(polymorph(pgon1, pgon2, i,
easingfunction = easeinoutinversequad)),
action = :stroke,
close = true)

.
Luxor.polyportion
— Functionpolyportion(p::Array{Point, 1}, portion=0.5;
closed=true,
pdist = Array{Union{Float64, Int}, 1}[])
Return a portion of a polygon, starting at a value between 0.0 (the beginning) and 1.0 (the end). 0.5 returns the first half of the polygon, 0.25 the first quarter, 0.75 the first three quarters, and so on.
Use closed=false
to exclude the line joining the final point to the first point from the calculations.
If you already have a list of the distances between each point in the polygon (the "polydistances"), you can pass them in pdist
, otherwise they'll be calculated afresh, using polydistances(p, closed=closed)
.
Use the complementary polyremainder()
function to return the other part.

Use closed=false
to exclude the line joining the final point to the first point from the calculations.
If you already have a list of the distances between each point in the polygon (the "polydistances"), you can pass them in pdist

Return copy of polygon with no collinear points.
Caution: may return an empty polygon... !
TODO This code is still experimental...
Luxor.polyrotate!
— Methodpolyrotate!(pgon, θ;
center=O)
Rotate (permanently) a polygon around center
by θ
radians.
Luxor.polysample
— Methodpolysample(p::Array{Point, 1}, npoints::T where T <: Integer;
closed=true)
Sample the polygon p
, returning a polygon with npoints
to represent it. The first sampled point is:
1/`npoints` * `perimeter of p
`
away from the original first point of p
.
If npoints
is the same as length(p)
the returned polygon is the same as the original, but the first point finishes up at the end (so new=circshift(old, 1)
).
If closed
is true, the entire polygon (including the edge joining the last point to the first point) is sampled.
If include_first
is true, the first point of plist
is included in the result.
If the resulting polygon's first and end points are the same, the end point is discarded.
Luxor.polyscale!

, relative to center
.
Luxor.polysmooth
— Methodpolysmooth(points, radius, action=:action; debug=false, close=true)
polysmooth(points, radius; action=:none, debug=false, close=true)
Make a closed path from the points
and round the corners by making them arcs with the given radius. Execute the action when finished.
The arcs are sometimes different sizes: if the given radius is bigger than the length of the shortest side, the arc can't be drawn at its full radius and is therefore drawn as large as possible (as large as the shortest side allows).
The debug
option also draws the construction circles at each corner.
TODO Return something more useful than a Boolean.
Luxor.polysortbyangle
— FunctionSort the points of a polygon into order. Points are sorted according to the angle they make with a specified point.
polysortbyangle(pointlist::Array, refpoint=minimum(pointlist))
The refpoint
can be chosen, but the default minimum point is usually OK too:
polysortbyangle(parray, polycentroid(parray))
Luxor.polysortbydistance
— MethodSort a polygon by finding the nearest point to the starting point, then the nearest point to that, and so on.
polysortbydistance(p, starting::Point)
You can end up with convex (selfintersecting) polygons, unfortunately.
Luxor.polysplit
— Methodpolysplit(p, p1, p2)
Split a polygon into two where it intersects with a line. It returns two polygons:
(poly1, poly2)
This doesn't always work, of course. For example, a polygon the shape of the letter "E" might end up being divided into more than two parts.
Luxor.polysuper
— Functionpolysuper(center::Point = Point(0, 0);
n1 = 1,
n2 = 1,
n3 = 1,
m = 2,

reversepath = false,
stepby = π / 120)
Build a supershape, a generalization of the superellipse, and apply action

Luxor.polytriangulate
— Methodpolytriangulate(plist::Array{Point,1}; epsilon = 0.01)
Triangulate the polygon in plist
.
This uses the Bowyer–Watson/Delaunay algorithm to make triangles. It returns an array of triangular polygons.
TODO: This experimental polygon function is not very efficient, because it first copies the list of points (to avoid modifying the original), and sorts it, before making triangles.
Luxor.prettypoly
— Functionprettypoly(points::Array{Point, 1}, vertexfunction = () > circle(O, 2, :stroke);
action=:none,
close=false,
reversepath=false,
vertexlabels = (n, l) > ()
)
Draw the polygon defined by points
, possibly closing and reversing it, using the current parameters, and then evaluate the vertexfunction
function at every vertex of the polygon.
The default vertexfunction draws a 2 pt radius circle.
To mark each vertex of a polygon with a randomly colored filled circle:
p = star(O, 70, 7, 0.6, 0, vertices=true)
prettypoly(p, action=:fill, () >
begin
randomhue()
circle(O, 10, :fill)
end,
close=true)
The optional keyword argument vertexlabels
lets you supply a function with two arguments that can access the current vertex number and the total number of vertices at each vertex. For example, you can label the vertices of a triangle "1 of 3", "2 of 3", and "3 of 3" using:
prettypoly(triangle, action=:stroke,
vertexlabels = (n, l) > (text(string(n, " of ", l))))
Luxor.prettypoly
— Functionprettypoly(bbox::BoundingBox, action; kwargs...)
Make a decorated polygon around the BoundingBox in bbox
. The vertices are in the order: bottom left, top left, top right, and bottom right.

are the lengths of the "handles". 0.3 is a typical value.
Luxor.setblend
— Methodsetblend(blend)
Start using the named blend for filling graphics.
This aligns the original coordinates of the blend definition with the current axes.
Luxor.setblendextend
— Methodsetblendextend(blend::Blend, mode)
Specify how color blend patterns are repeated/extended. Supply the blend and one of the following strings:
"repeat": the pattern is repeated
"reflect": the pattern is reflected (repeated in reverse)
"pad": outside the pattern, use the closest color
"none": outside of the pattern, use transparent pixels
Luxor.setcolor
— Methodsetcolor("gold")
setcolor("darkturquoise")
Set the current color to a named color. This use the definitions in Colors.jl to convert a string to RGBA eg setcolor("gold")
or "green", "darkturquoise", "lavender", etc. The list is at Colors.color_names
.
Use sethue()
for changing colors without changing current opacity level.
sethue()
and setcolor()
return the three or four values that were used:
julia> setcolor(sethue("red")..., .8)
(1.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.8)
julia> sethue(setcolor("red")[1:3]...)
(1.0, 0.0, 0.0)
You can also do:
using Colors
sethue(colorant"red")
See also setcolor
.

setcolor(convert(Colors.HSV, Colors.RGB(0.5, 1, 1)))
for i in 1:15:360
setcolor(convert(Colors.RGB, Colors.HSV(i, 1, 1)))
...
end
See also sethue
.
Luxor.setcolor

Luxor.setdash
— Functionsetdash(dashes::Vector, offset=0.0)
Set the dash pattern for lines to the values in dashes
. The first number is the length of the inked portion, the second the space, and so on.
The offset
specifies an offset into the pattern at which the stroke begins. So an offset of 10 means that the stroke starts at dashes[1] + 10
into the pattern.
Or use setdash("dot")
etc.
Luxor.setdash
— Methodsetdash("dot")
Set the dash pattern of lines to one of: "solid", "dotted", "dot", "dotdashed", "longdashed", "shortdashed", "dash", "dashed", "dotdotdashed", "dotdotdotdashed".
Use setdash(dashes::Vector)
to specify the pattern numerically.
Luxor.setfillrule
— Functionsetfillrule(rule::Symbol)
Set the fill rule for paths for the current drawing.
rule
can be :winding
or :even_odd
The fill rule is used to select how subpaths are filled. For both fill rules, whether or not a point is included in the fill is determined by taking a ray from that point to infinity and looking at intersections with the path. The ray can be in any direction, as long as it doesn't pass through the end point of a segment or have a tricky intersection such as intersecting tangent to the path. (Note that filling is not actually implemented in this way. This is just a description of the rule that is applied.)
The default fill rule is :winding
.
:winding
: If the path crosses the ray from lefttoright, counts +1. If the path crosses the ray from right to left, counts 1. (Left and right are determined from the perspective of looking along the ray from the starting point.) If the total count is nonzero, the point will be filled.
even_odd
: counts the total number of intersections, without regard to the orientation of the contour. If the total number of intersections is odd, the point will be filled. (Since 1.0)
See getfillrule
.
Luxor.setfont

— Methodsethue("black")
sethue(0.3, 0.7, 0.9)
setcolor(sethue("red")..., .2)
Set the color without changing opacity.
sethue()
is like setcolor()
, but we sometimes want to change the current color without changing alpha/opacity. Using sethue()
rather than setcolor()
doesn't change the current alpha opacity.
See also setcolor
.
Luxor.sethue
— Methodsethue(0.3, 0.7, 0.9)
Set the color's r
, g
, b
values. Use setcolor(r, g, b, a)

Set the compositing/blending mode. mode
can be one of:
"clear"
Where the second object is drawn, the first is completely removed."source"
The second object is drawn as if nothing else were below."over"
The default mode: like two transparent slides overlapping."in"
The first object is removed completely, the second is only drawn where the first was."out"
The second object is drawn only where the first one wasn't."atop"
The first object is mostly intact, but mixes both objects in the overlapping area. The second object is not drawn elsewhere."dest"

). If no font is specified, on macOS the default font is Times Roman.
To align the text, use halign
, one of "left", "center", or "right", and valign
, one of "top", "center", or "bottom".
angle
is the rotation  in counterclockwise degrees, rather than Luxor's default clockwise (+xaxis to +yaxis) radians.
If markup
is true
, then the string can contain some HTMLstyle markup. Supported tags include:
<b>, <i>, <s>, <sub>, <sup>, <small>, <big>, <u>, <tt>, and <span>
The <span>
tag can contains things like this:
<span font='26' background='green' foreground='red'>unreadable text</span>

angles=[0.1, 0.1],
handles=[1.1, 1.1])
Return a new BezierPathSegment that modifies the Bézier path in bps
by moving the control handles. The values in angles
increase the angle of the handles; the values in handles
modifies the lengths: 1 preserves the length, 0.5 halves the length of the handles, 2 doubles them.

fname = :png,
cb = missing,
scalefactor = 1.0,
addmarker = true)
snapshot(fname, cb, scalefactor)
> finished snapshot drawing, for display

determine the start radius, and the tightness.
For linear spirals (log=false
), b
values are:
lituus: 2
hyperbolic spiral: 1
Archimedes' spiral: 1
Fermat's spiral: 2
For logarithmic spirals (log=true
):
golden spiral: b = ln(phi)/ (pi/2) (about 0.30)
Values of b
around 0.1 produce tighter, staircaselike spirals.

squircle(center::Point, hradius, vradius, action;
rt = 0.5, stepby = pi/40, vertices=false)
Make a squircle or superellipse (basically a rectangle with rounded corners), and add it to the current path. Specify the center position, horizontal radius (distance from center to a side), and vertical radius (distance from center to top or bottom):
The root (rt
) option defaults to 0.5, and gives an intermediate shape. Values less than 0.5 make the shape more rectangular. Values above make the shape more round. The horizontal and vertical radii can be different.

Place a string of text on a curve. It can spiral in or out.
start_angle
is relative to +ve xaxis, arc/circle is centered on pos
with radius start_radius
.
Luxor.textcurvecentered
— Methodtextcurvecentered(the_text, the_angle, the_radius, center::Point;
clockwise = true,
letter_spacing = 0,
baselineshift = 0
This version of the textcurve()
function is designed for shorter text strings that need positioning around a circle. (A cheesy effect much beloved of hipster brands and retronauts.)
letter_spacing
adjusts the tracking/space between chars, tighter is (), looser is (+)). baselineshift
moves the text up or down away from the baseline.
textcurvecentred
(UK spelling) is a synonym.
Luxor.textextents
— Methodtextextents(str)
Return an array of six Float64s containing the measurements of the string str
when set using the current font settings (Toy API):
1 x_bearing
2 y_bearing
3 width
4 height
5 x_advance
6 y_advance
The x and y bearings are the displacement from the reference point to the upperleft corner of the bounding box. It is often zero or a small positive value for x displacement, but can be negative x for characters like "j"; it's almost always a negative value for y displacement.
The width and height then describe the size of the bounding box. The advance takes you to the suggested reference point for the next letter. Note that bounding boxes for subsequent blocks of text can overlap if the bearing is negative, or the advance is smaller than the width would suggest.
Example:
textextents("R")
returns
[1.18652; 9.68335; 8.04199; 9.68335; 9.74927; 0.0]
Luxor.textfit
— Functiontextfit(str, bbox::BoundingBox, maxfontsize = 800;
horizontalmargin=12,
leading=100)
Fit the string str
into the bounding box bbox
by adjusting the font size and line breaks.
Instead of using the current font size, the largest possible value will be calculated. You can specify a size limit in maxfontsize
, such that the text will never be larger than this value, although it may have to be smaller.
horizontalmargin
is applied to each side.
Optionally, leading
can be supplied, and this will be interpreted as a percentage of the final calculated font size. The default value is 110 (%).
The function returns a named tuple with information about the calculated values:
(fontsize = 37.6, linecount = 5, finalpos = Point(117.43, 92.60)
This function is in need of improvement. It's quite difficult to find out the height of a line of text in a specific font. (Unless we import FreeType.) Suggestions for improvements welcome!
Luxor.textformat
— Methodtextformat(e1, e2, e3...;
color=getcolor(),
fontsize=get_fontsize(),
fontface="Helvetica",
leading=120,
baseline=0,
prolog=nothing,
advance=1.0,
position=Point(0, 0),
width=300)
Draw the text in elements e1
, e2
, ... Each element can be either:
a string
a named tuple containing text and formatting parameters:
Text starts at position
and is constrained by the width
.
A named tuple element can be something like this:
(
text= "a string",
color = "blue",
fontsize = 12,
fontface = "JuliaMonoItalic",
leading = 100,
baseline = 0,
advance = 1.0,
prolog = nothing
)
If advance
is 1.0, elements are separated by a space; otherwise by advance
units (positive shifts to the right).
baseline
is usually 0, but positive values move the text upwards.
leading
here is a percentage, relative to the font size; the default is 120%.
prolog
calls a function with arguments (position::Point, str::String)
, which is called before the text is drawn.
Returns the point where the next text would be placed.
This function uses the Toy text API.
Example
This example draws a bold heading in red, and a paragraph below in monospaced text, in orange.
@draw begin
background("black")
fontsize(20)
textformat(
(text="Heading",
fontface="AvenirNextHeavy",
fontsize=40,
leading=100,
color = "red",
),
(text="The first paragraph.",
fontface = "JuliaMonoLight",
fontsize = 20,
color="orange"
),
position = boxtopleft() + (100, 100),
width = 150
)
end
Luxor.textlines
— Methodtextlines(s::T where T <: AbstractString, width::Real;
rightgutter=5)
Split the text in s
into lines up to width
units wide (in the current font).
Returns an array of strings. Use textwrap
to draw an array of strings.
TODO: A rightgutter
optional keyword adds some padding to the right hand side of the column. This appears to be needed sometimes — perhaps the algorithm needs improving to take account of the interaction of textextents
and spaces?
Luxor.textonpoly
— Methodtextonpoly(str, pgon;
tracking = 0,
startoffset = 0.0,
baselineshift = 0.0,
closed = false)
Draw the text in str
along the route of the polygon in pgon
.
The closed
option determines whether the final edge of the polygon (joining the last point to the first) is included or not. Eg if you want to draw a string around all three sides of a triangle, you'd use closed=true
:
textonpoly("mèdeis ageômetrètos eisitô mou tèn
stegèn  let no one ignorant of geometry come under my roof
",
ngon(O, 100, 3, vertices=true),
closed=true)
If false
, only two sides are considered.
Increase tracking
from 0 to add space between the glyphs.
The startoffset
value is a normalized percentage that specifies the start position. So, to start drawing the text halfway along the polygon, specify a start offset value of 0.5.
Positive values for baselineshift
move the characters upwards from the baseline.
Returns a tuple with the number of characters drawn, and the final value of the index, between 0.0 and 1.0. If the returned index value is less than 1, this means that the text supplied ran out before the end of the polygon was reached.
Luxor.textoutlines
— Methodtextoutlines(s::String, pos::Point=O;
action=:none,
halign=:left,
valign=:baseline,
startnewpath=true)
Convert text to polygons and apply action
.
By default this function discards any current path, unless you use startnewpath=false
See also textpath()
. textpath()
retains Bezier curves, whereas textoutlines()
returns flattened curves.
TODO Return something more useful than a Boolean.
Luxor.textpath
— Methodtextpath(s::String, pos::Point;
action=:none,
halign=:left,
valign=:baseline,
startnewpath=true)
Convert the text in string s
to paths and apply the action.
TODO Return something more useful than a Boolean.
Luxor.textpath
— Methodtextpath(t)
Convert the text in string t
to paths, adding them to the current path, for subsequent filling/stroking etc...
You can use pathtopoly()
or getpath()
or getpathflat()
to convert the paths to polygons.
See also textoutlines()
. textpath()
retains Bezier curves, whereas textoutlines()
returns flattened curves.
Luxor.textplace
— Methodtextplace(txt::T where T <: AbstractString, pos::Point, params::Vector;
action = :fill,
startnewpath = false)
A lowlevel function that places text characters one by one according to the parameters in params
. First character uses the first tuple, second character uses the second, and so on.
Returns the next text position.
A tuple of parameters is:
(face = "TimesRoman", size = 12, color=colorant"black", kern = 0, shift = 0, advance = true)
where
face
is fontface "string" # stickysize
is fontsize # pts # stickycolor
is color # stickykern
amount (pixels) shifted to the right # resets after each charshift
= baseline shifted vertically # resets after each charadvance
 whether to advance # resets after each char
Some parameters are "sticky": once set, they apply for all subsequent characters until a new value is supplied. Others aren't sticky, and are reset for each character. So font face, size, and color parameters need only be specified once, whereas kern/shift/advance modifiers are reset for each character.
Example
Draw the Hogwarts Express Platform number 9 and 3/4:
txtpos = textplace("93—4!", O  (200, 0), [
# format for 9:
(size=120, face="BodoniPoster", color=colorant"grey10"),
# format for 3:
(size=60, kern = 5, shift = 60, advance=false,),
# format for :
( kern = 0, shift = 25, advance=false,),
# format for 4:
( kern = 5, shift = 20, advance=true),
# format for !:
(size=120, kern = 20,),
])
Luxor.texttrack
— Methodtexttrack(txt, pos, tracking;
action=:fill,
halign=:left,
valign=:baseline,
startnewpath=true)
texttrack(txt, pos, tracking, fontsize;
action=:fill,
halign=:left,
valign=:baseline,
startnewpath=true)
Place the text in txt
at pos
, leftjustified, and letter space ('track') the text using the value in tracking
.
The tracking units depend on the current font size. In a 12‑point font, 1 em equals 12 points. A point is about 0.35mm, 1em is about 4.2mm, and a 1000 units of tracking are about 4.2mm. So a tracking value of 1000 for a 12 point font places about 4mm between each character.
A negative value tightens the letter spacing noticeably.
The text drawing action applied to each character defaults to textoutlines(... :fill)
.
If startnewpath
is true, each character is acted on separately. To clip and track text, specify the clip action and avoid resetting the clipping path for each character.
newpath()
texttrack(t, O + (0, 80), 200, action=:clip, startnewpath=false)
...
clipreset()
TODO Is it possible to fix strings with combining characters such as "̈"?
Luxor.textwrap
— Methodtextwrap(s::T where T<:AbstractString, width::Real, pos::Point;
rightgutter=5,
leading=0)
textwrap(s::T where T<:AbstractString, width::Real, pos::Point, linefunc::Function;
rightgutter=5,
leading=0)
Draw the string in s
by splitting it at whitespace characters into lines, so that each line is no longer than width
units. The text starts at pos
such that the first line of text is drawn entirely below a line drawn horizontally through that position. Each line is aligned on the left side, below pos
.
See also textbox()
.
Optionally, before each line, execute the function linefunc(linenumber, linetext, startpos, leading)
.
If you don't supply a value for leading
, the font's builtin extents are used.
Text with no whitespace characters won't wrap. You can write a simple chunking function to split a string or array into chunks:
chunk(x, n) = [x[i:min(i+n1,length(x))] for i in 1:n:length(x)]
For example:
textwrap(the_text, 300, boxtopleft(BoundingBox()) + 20,
(ln, lt, sp, ht) > begin
c = count(t > occursin(r"[[:punct:]]", t), split(lt, ""))
@layer begin
fontface("Menlo")
sethue("darkred")
text(string("[", c, "]"), sp + (310, 0))
end
end)
puts a count of the number of punctuation characters in each line at the end of the line.
Returns the position of what would have been the next line.
Luxor.tickline
— Methodtickline(startpos, finishpos;
startnumber = 0,
finishnumber = 1,
major = 1,
minor = 0,
major_tick_function = nothing,
minor_tick_function = nothing,
rounding = 2,
axis = true, # draw the line?
log = false,
vertices = false # just return the points
)
Draw a line with ticks. major
is the number of ticks required between the start and finish point. So 1
divides the line in half. minor
is the number of ticks between each major tick.
Examples
tickline(Point(0, 0), Point(100, 0))
tickline(Point(0, 0), Point(100, 0), major = 4)
majorticks, minorticks = tickline(Point(0, 0), Point(100, 0), axis=false)
Custom ticks
Supply functions to make custom ticks. Custom tick functions should have arguments as follows:
function mtick(n, pos;
startnumber = 0,
finishnumber = 1,
nticks = 1)
...
and
function mntick(n, pos;
startnumber = 0,
finishnumber = 1,
nticks = 1,
majorticklocations = [])
...
For example:
tickline(O  (300, 0), Point(300, 0),
startnumber = 10,
finishnumber = 10,
minor = 0,
major = 4,
axis = false,
major_tick_function = (n, pos;
startnumber=30, finishnumber=40, nticks=10) > begin
@layer begin
translate(pos)
ticklength = get_fontsize()
line(O, O + polar(ticklength, 3π/2), :stroke)
k = rescale(n, 0, nticks  1, startnumber, finishnumber)
ticklength = get_fontsize() * 1.3
text("$(round(k, digits=2))",
O + (0, ticklength),
halign=:center,
valign=:middle,
angle = getrotation())
end
end)

and write it to tofile
with modified glyph names.
Luxor.tidysvg
— Methodtidysvg(fname)
Read the SVG image in fname

Return the name of the modified file.
SVG images use 'named defs' for text, which cause errors problem when used in browsers and notebooks. See this github issue for details.
A kludgy workround is to rename the elements.
Luxor.transform
— Methodtransform(a::Array)
Modify the current matrix by multiplying it by matrix a
.
For example, to skew the current state by 45 degrees in x and move by 20 in y direction:

, pt2
, and pt3
.
Luxor.trianglecircumcenter
— Methodtrianglecircumcenter(pt1::Point, pt2::Point, pt3::Point)

Luxor.triangleincenter
— Methodtriangleincenter(pt1::Point, pt2::Point, pt3::Point)
Return the incenter of the triangle defined by pt1
, pt2
, and pt3
. The incenter is the center of a circle inscribed inside the triangle.
Luxor.triangleorthocenter
— Methodtriangleorthocenter(pt1::Point, pt2::Point, pt3::Point)
Return the orthocenter of the triangle defined by pt1
, pt2
, and pt3
.
Luxor.trimbezier
— Methodtrimbezier(bps::BezierPathSegment, lowpt, highpt)
Chop the ends of a BezierPathSegment at lowpt
and highpt
. lowpt
and highpt
should be between 0 and 1.
Returns a trimmed BezierPathSegment.
Luxor.AnimatedGif
— TypeWraps the location of an animated gif so that it can be displayed
Luxor.BezierPath
— TypeBezierPath is an array of BezierPathSegments. segments
is Vector{BezierPathSegment}
.
Luxor.BezierPathSegment
— TypeBezierPathSegment is an array of four points:
p1
 start point cp1
 control point for start point cp2
 control point for finishpoint p2
 finish point
Luxor.BoundingBox
— MethodBoundingBox(str::AbstractString)
Return a BoundingBox that just encloses a text string, given the current font selection. Uses the Toy text API (ie text()
and textextents()
).
Text is assumed to be placed at the origin (0/0
).
Luxor.BoundingBox
— MethodBoundingBox(tile::BoxmapTile)
Return a BoundingBox of a BoxmapTile (as created with boxmap()
).
Luxor.BoundingBox
— MethodBoundingBox(path::Path)
Find bounding box of a stored Path (made with storepath()
).
Luxor.BoundingBox
— MethodBoundingBox(t::table, rownumber, columnnumber)
Return a BoundingBox that encloses cell at row rownumber
, column colnumber
of table t
.

Luxor.BoundingBox
— MethodBoundingBox(t::table)
Return a BoundingBox that encloses the table t

Luxor.BoundingBox
— MethodBoundingBox(t::Tiler, r, c)
Return the Bounding Box enclosing the tile at row r
column c
.
Luxor.BoundingBox
— MethodBoundingBox(t::Tiler, n)
Return the Bounding Box enclosing tile n
.
Luxor.BoundingBox
— MethodBoundingBox(pointlist::Array)
Return the BoundingBox of a polygon (array of points).
Luxor.BoundingBox
— MethodBoundingBox()
with no arguments returns a BoundingBox that includes the current drawing.
The default BoundingBox(;centered=true)
returns a BoundingBox the same size and position as the current drawing, and assumes the origin (0, 0) is at the center.
If the centered
option is false
, the function assumes that the origin is at the top left of the drawing. So this function doesn't really work if the current matrix has been modified (by translate()
, scale()
, rotate()
etc.)
An instance of the BoundingBox type holds two Points, corner1
and corner2
.
BoundingBox(;centered = true) # the bounding box of the Drawing
BoundingBox(s::AbstractString) # the bounding box of a text string at the origin
BoundingBox(pt::Array) # the bounding box of a polygon
BoundingBox(circle(O, 100)) # the bounding box of a path added by circle()
BoundingBox(path::Path) # the bounding box of a Path
You can use BoundingBox()
with the functions that add graphic shapes to the current path (eg box()
, circle()
, star()
, ngon()
). But note that eg BoundingBox(box(O, 100, 100))
adds a shape to the current path as well as returning a bounding box.
Luxor.Drawing
— TypeCreate a new drawing, and optionally specify file type (PNG, PDF, SVG, EPS), filebased or inmemory, and dimensions.
Drawing(width=600, height=600, file="luxordrawing.png")
Extended help
Drawing()
creates a drawing, defaulting to PNG format, default filename "luxordrawing.png", default size 800 pixels square.
You can specify dimensions, and assume the default output filename:
Drawing(400, 300)
creates a drawing 400 pixels wide by 300 pixels high, defaulting to PNG format, default filename "luxordrawing.png".
Drawing(400, 300, "mydrawing.pdf")
creates a PDF drawing in the file "mydrawing.pdf", 400 by 300 pixels.
Drawing(1200, 800, "mydrawing.svg")
creates an SVG drawing in the file "mydrawing.svg", 1200 by 800 pixels.
Drawing(width, height, surfacetype  filename)
creates a new drawing of the given surface type (e.g. :svg, :png), storing the picture only in memory if no filename is provided.
Drawing(1200, 1200/Base.Mathconstants.golden, "mydrawing.eps")
creates an EPS drawing in the file "mydrawing.eps", 1200 wide by 741.8 pixels (= 1200 ÷ ϕ) high. Only for PNG files must the dimensions be integers.
Drawing("A4", "mydrawing.pdf")
creates a PDF drawing in ISO A4 size (595 wide by 842 high) in the file "mydrawing.pdf". Other sizes available are: "A0", "A1", "A2", "A3", "A4", "A5", "A6", "Letter", "Legal", "A", "B", "C", "D", "E". Append "landscape" to get the landscape version.
Drawing("A4landscape")
creates the drawing A4 landscape size.
PNG and PDF default to transparent backgrounds, unless you specify one using background()
.
Drawing(width, height, :image)
creates the drawing in an image buffer in memory. You can obtain the data as a matrix with image_as_matrix()
.
Drawing(width, height, :rec)
creates the drawing in a recording surface in memory. snapshot(fname, ...)
to any file format and bounding box, or render as pixels with image_as_matrix()
.
Drawing(width, height, strokescale=true)
creates the drawing and enables stroke scaling (strokes will be scaled according to the current transformation). (Stroke scaling is disabled by default.)
Drawing(img, strokescale=true)
creates the drawing from an existing image buffer of type Matrix{Union{RGB24,ARGB32}}
, e.g.:
using Luxor, Colors
buffer=zeros(ARGB32, 100, 100)
d=Drawing(buffer)
Luxor.GridHex
— TypeGridHex(startpoint, radius, width=1200.0, height=1200.0)
Define a hexagonal grid, to start at startpoint
and proceed along the xaxis and then along the yaxis, radius
is the radius of a circle that encloses each hexagon. The distance in x
between the centers of successive hexagons is:
$\frac{\sqrt{(3)} radius}{2}$
To get the next point from the grid, use nextgridpoint(g::Grid)
.
When you run out of grid points, you'll wrap round and start again.
Luxor.GridRect
— TypeGridRect(startpoint, xspacing, yspacing, width, height)
Define a rectangular grid, to start at startpoint
and proceed along the xaxis in steps of xspacing
, then along the yaxis in steps of yspacing
.
GridRect(startpoint, xspacing=100.0, yspacing=100.0, width=1200.0, height=1200.0)
For a column, set the xspacing
to 0:
grid = GridRect(O, 0, 40)
To get points from the grid, use nextgridpoint(g::Grid)
.
julia> grid = GridRect(O, 0, 40);
julia> nextgridpoint(grid)
Luxor.Point(0.0, 0.0)
julia> nextgridpoint(grid)
Luxor.Point(0.0, 40.0)
When you run out of grid points, you'll wrap round and start again.
Luxor.Hexagon
— TypeHexagon
To create a hexagon, use one of the types:
 HexagonOffsetOddR q r origin w h
 HexagonOffsetEvenR q r origin w h
 HexagonAxial q r origin w h
 HexagonCubic q r s origin w h
Functions:
 hextile(hex::Hexagon)  calculate the six vertices

Luxor.HexagonOffsetOddR
— TypeHexagonOffsetOddR
odd rows shifted right
Luxor.Movie
— TypeThe Movie
and Scene
types and the animate()
function are designed to help you create the frames that can be used to make an animated GIF or movie.
1 Provide width, height, title, and optionally a frame range to the Movie constructor:
demo = Movie(400, 400, "test", 1:500)
2 Define one or more scenes and scenedrawing functions.
3 Run the animate()
function, calling those scenes.
Example
bang = Movie(400, 100, "bang")
backdrop(scene, framenumber) = background("black")
function frame1(scene, framenumber)
background("white")
sethue("black")
eased_n = scene.easingfunction(framenumber, 0, 1, scene.framerange.stop)
circle(O, 40 * eased_n, :fill)
end
animate(bang, [
Scene(bang, backdrop, 0:200),
Scene(bang, frame1, 0:200, easingfunction=easeinsine)],
creategif=true,
pathname="/tmp/animationtest.gif")
Luxor.Movie
— MethodMovie(width, height, movietitle)
Define a movie, specifying the width, height, and a title. The title will be used to make the output file name. The range defaults to 1:250
.
Luxor.Partition
— Typep = Partition(areawidth, areaheight, tilewidth, tileheight)
A Partition is an iterator that, for each iteration, returns a tuple of:
the
x
/y
point of the center of each tile in a set of tiles that divide up a rectangular space such as a page into rows and columns (relative to current 0/0)the number of the tile
areawidth
and areaheight
are the dimensions of the area to be tiled, tilewidth
/tileheight
are the dimensions of the tiles.
Tiler and Partition are similar:
Partition lets you specify the width and height of a cell
Tiler lets you specify how many rows and columns of cells you want, and a margin
tiles = Partition(1200, 1200, 30, 30) for (pos, n) in tiles
the point pos is the center of the tile
end
You can access the calculated tile width and height like this:
tiles = Partition(1200, 1200, 30, 30)
for (pos, n) in tiles
ellipse(pos.x, pos.y, tiles.tilewidth, tiles.tileheight, :fill)
end
It's sometimes useful to know which row and column you're currently on:
tiles.currentrow
tiles.currentcol
should have that information for you.
Unless the tilewidth and tileheight are exact multiples of the area width and height, you'll see a border at the right and bottom where the tiles won't fit.
Luxor.Path
— TypeA Path object contains, in the .path
field, a vector of PathElement
s (PathCurve
, PathMove
, PathLine
, PathClose
) that describe a Cairo path. Use drawpath()
to draw it.
Path([PathMove(Point(2.0, 90.5625)),
PathCurve(Point(4.08203, 68.16015), Point(11.28, 45.28), Point(24.8828, 26.40234)),
PathLine(Point(2.0, 90.5625)),
PathClose()
])
Luxor.Path
— MethodPath(ptlist::Vector{Point}; close=false))
Create a Path from the points in ptlist
.
Luxor.Point
— TypeThe Point type holds two coordinates. It's immutable, you can't change the values of the x and y values directly.
Luxor.Scene
— TypeThe Scene type defines a function to be used to render a range of frames in a movie.
 the
movie
created by Movie()  the
framefunction
is a function taking two arguments: the scene and the framenumber.  the
framerange
determines which frames are processed by the function. Defaults to the entire movie.  the optional
easingfunction
can be accessed by the framefunction to vary the transition speed  the optional
opts
which is a single argument of an abstract type which can be accessed within the framefunction
Luxor.Scene
— MethodScene(movie, function, range;
easingfunction=easinoutquad,
optarg=nothing)
Use the Scene() constructor function to create a scene. Supply a movie, a function to generate the scene, and a range of frames. Optionally you can supply an easing function, and other information, in optarg
, which can be accessed as scene.opts
.
Example
function initial(scene, framenumber)
balls = scene.opts
...
end
animate(poolmovie, [
Scene(poolmovie, initial, optarg=balls, 1:20),
...
])
To use an easing function inside the framegenerating function, you can create a normalized value with, for example:
eased_n = scene.easingfunction(framenumber, 0, 1, scene.framerange.stop)
Or, if the scene doesn't start at frame 1, calculate normalized easing function like this:
eased_n = scene.easingfunction(framenumber  scene.framerange.start,

Luxor.Table
— Typet = Table(nrows, ncols)
t = Table(nrows, ncols, colwidth, rowheight)
t = Table(rowheights, columnwidths)
Tables are centered at O
, but you can supply a point after the specifications.
t = Table(nrows, ncols, centerpoint)
t = Table(nrows, ncols, colwidth, rowheight, centerpoint)
t = Table(rowheights, columnwidths, centerpoint)
Examples
Simple tables
t = Table(4, 3) # 4 rows and 3 cols, default is 100w, 50 h
t = Table(4, 3, 80, 30) # 4 rows of 30pts high, 3 cols of 80pts wide
t = Table(4, 3, (80, 30)) # same
t = Table((4, 3), (80, 30)) # same
Specify row heights and column widths instead of quantities:
t = Table([60, 40, 100], 50) # 3 different height rows, 1 column 50 wide
t = Table([60, 40, 100], [100, 60, 40]) # 3 rows, 3 columns
t = Table(fill(30, (10)), [50, 50, 50]) # 10 rows 30 high, 3 columns 10 wide
t = Table(50, [60, 60, 60]) # just 1 row (50 high), 3 columns 60 wide
t = Table([50], [50]) # just 1 row, 1 column, both 50 units wide
t = Table(50, 50, 10, 5) # 50 rows, 50 columns, 10 units wide, 5 units high
t = Table([6, 11, 16, 21, 26, 31, 36, 41, 46], [6, 11, 16, 21, 26, 31, 36, 41, 46])
t = Table(15:5:55, vcat(5:2:15, 15:2:5))
# table has 108 cells, with:
# row heights: 15 20 25 30 35 40 45 50 55
# col widths: 5 7 9 11 13 15 15 13 11 9 7 5
t = Table(vcat(5:10:60, 60:10:5), vcat(5:10:60, 60:10:5))
t = Table(vcat(5:10:60, 60:10:5), 50) # 1 column 50 units wide
t = Table(vcat(5:10:60, 60:10:5), 1:5:50)
A Table is an iterator that, for each iteration, returns a tuple of:
the
x
/y
point of the center of cells arranged in rows and columns (relative to current 0/0)the number of the cell (left to right, then top to bottom)
nrows
/ncols
are the number of rows and columns required.
It's sometimes useful to know which row and column you're currently on while iterating:
t.currentrow
t.currentcol
and row heights and column widths are available in:
t.rowheights
t.colwidths
box(t::Table, r, c)
can be used to fill table cells:
@svg begin
for (pt, n) in (t = Table(8, 3, 30, 15))
randomhue()
box(t, t.currentrow, t.currentcol, :fill)
sethue("white")
text(string(n), pt)
end
end
or without iteration, using cellnumber:
@svg begin
t = Table(8, 3, 30, 15)
for n in eachindex(t)
randomhue()
box(t, n, :fill)
sethue("white")
text(string(n), t[n])
end
end
To use a Table to make grid points:
julia> first.(collect(Table(10, 6)))
60element Array{Luxor.Point,1}:
Luxor.Point(10.0, 18.0)
Luxor.Point(6.0, 18.0)
Luxor.Point(2.0, 18.0)
⋮
Luxor.Point(2.0, 18.0)
Luxor.Point(6.0, 18.0)
Luxor.Point(10.0, 18.0)
which returns an array of points that are the center points of the cells in the table.
Luxor.Tiler
— Typetiles = Tiler(areawidth, areaheight, nrows, ncols, margin=20)
A Tiler is an iterator that, for each iteration, returns a tuple of:
the
x
/y
point of the center of each tile in a set of tiles that divide up a rectangular space such as a page into rows and columns (relative to current 0/0)the number of the tile
areawidth
and areaheight
are the dimensions of the area to be tiled, nrows
/ncols
are the number of rows and columns required, and margin
is applied to all four edges of the area before the function calculates the tile sizes required.
Tiler and Partition are similar:
Partition lets you specify the width and height of a cell
Tiler lets you specify how many rows and columns of cells you want, and a margin:
tiles = Tiler(1000, 800, 4, 5, margin=20)
for (pos, n) in tiles
# the point pos is the center of the tile
end
You can access the calculated tile width and height like this:
tiles = Tiler(1000, 800, 4, 5, margin=20)
for (pos, n) in tiles
ellipse(pos.x, pos.y, tiles.tilewidth, tiles.tileheight, :fill)
end
It's sometimes useful to know which row and column you're currently on. tiles.currentrow
and tiles.currentcol
should have that information for you.
To use a Tiler to make grid points:
first.(collect(Tiler(800, 800, 4, 4)))
which returns an array of points that are the center points of the grid.
Luxor.Turtle
— TypeTurtle()
Turtle(O)
Turtle(0, 0)
Turtle(O, pendown=true, orientation=0, pencolor=(1.0, 0.25, 0.25))
Create a Turtle. You can command a turtle to move and draw "turtle graphics".
The commands (unusually for Julia) start with a capital letter, and angles are specified in degrees.
Basic commands are Forward()
, Turn()
, Pendown()
, Penup()
, Pencolor()
, Penwidth()
, Circle()
, Orientation()
, Rectangle()
, and Reposition()
.
Others include Push()
, Pop()
, Message()
, HueShift()
, Randomize_saturation()
, Reposition()
, and Pen_opacity_random()
.
Luxor.O
— ConstantO is a shortcut for the current origin, 0/0
Luxor.paper_sizes
— Constantpaper_sizes
The paper_sizes
Dictionary holds a few paper sizes, width is first, so default is Portrait:
"A0" => (2384, 3370),
"A1" => (1684, 2384),
"A2" => (1191, 1684),
"A3" => (842, 1191),
"A4" => (595, 842),
"A5" => (420, 595),
"A6" => (298, 420),
"A" => (612, 792),
"Letter" => (612, 792),
"Legal" => (612, 1008),
"Ledger" => (792, 1224),
"B" => (612, 1008),
"C" => (1584, 1224),
"D" => (2448, 1584),
"E" => (3168, 2448))
