The diagrams-builder package

[Tags: bsd3, library]

diagrams-builder provides backend-agnostic tools for dynamically turning code into rendered diagrams, using the hint wrapper to the GHC API. It supports conditional recompilation using hashing of diagrams source code, to avoid recompiling code that has not changed. It is useful for creating tools which compile diagrams code embedded in other documents. For example, it is used by the BlogLiterately-diagrams package (a plugin for BlogLiterately) to compile diagrams embedded in Markdown-formatted blog posts.

Executables specific to the cairo and SVG backends are included (more executables specific to other backends may be included in the future). Both take an input file and an expression to render, and outputs an image file. If you want these executables you must explicitly enable the -fcairo and/or -fsvg flags.

A LaTeX package, diagrams-latex.sty, is also provided in the latex/ directory of the source distribution, which renders diagrams code found within diagram environments. It makes use of the diagrams-builder-cairo executable, so if you want to use diagrams-latex.sty you should install diagrams-builder with the -fcairo option. Note that diagrams-latex.sty is licensed under the GPL.
