Description

Diagram combinators specialized to two dimensions. For more general combinators, see Diagrams.Combinators.

Synopsis

# Binary combinators

(===) :: (Juxtaposable a, V a ~ R2, Semigroup a) => a -> a -> aSource

Place two diagrams (or other objects) vertically adjacent to one another, with the first diagram above the second. Since Haskell ignores whitespace in expressions, one can thus write

c
===
d

to place c above d. The local origin of the resulting combined diagram is the same as the local origin of the first. (===) is associative and has mempty as a right (but not left) identity. See the documentation of beside for more information.

(|||) :: (Juxtaposable a, V a ~ R2, Semigroup a) => a -> a -> aSource

Place two diagrams (or other juxtaposable objects) horizontally adjacent to one another, with the first diagram to the left of the second. The local origin of the resulting combined diagram is the same as the local origin of the first. (===) is associative and has mempty as a right (but not left) identity. See the documentation of beside for more information.

atAngle :: (Juxtaposable a, V a ~ R2, Semigroup a, Angle b) => b -> a -> a -> aSource

Place two diagrams (or other juxtaposable objects) adjacent to one another, with the second diagram placed along a line at angle th from the first. The local origin of the resulting combined diagram is the same as the local origin of the first. See the documentation of beside for more information.

# n-ary combinators

hcat :: (Juxtaposable a, HasOrigin a, Monoid' a, V a ~ R2) => [a] -> aSource

Lay out a list of juxtaposable objects in a row from left to right, so that their local origins lie along a single horizontal line, with successive envelopes tangent to one another.

• For more control over the spacing, see hcat'.
• To align the diagrams vertically (or otherwise), use alignment combinators (such as alignT or alignB) from Diagrams.TwoD.Align before applying hcat.
• For non-axis-aligned layout, see cat.

hcat' :: (Juxtaposable a, HasOrigin a, Monoid' a, V a ~ R2) => CatOpts R2 -> [a] -> aSource

A variant of hcat taking an extra CatOpts record to control the spacing. See the cat' documentation for a description of the possibilities.

vcat :: (Juxtaposable a, HasOrigin a, Monoid' a, V a ~ R2) => [a] -> aSource

Lay out a list of juxtaposable objects in a column from top to bottom, so that their local origins lie along a single vertical line, with successive envelopes tangent to one another.

• For more control over the spacing, see vcat'.
• To align the diagrams horizontally (or otherwise), use alignment combinators (such as alignL or alignR) from Diagrams.TwoD.Align before applying vcat.
• For non-axis-aligned layout, see cat.

vcat' :: (Juxtaposable a, HasOrigin a, Monoid' a, V a ~ R2) => CatOpts R2 -> [a] -> aSource

A variant of vcat taking an extra CatOpts record to control the spacing. See the cat' documentation for a description of the possibilities.

# Spacing/envelopes

strutX :: (Backend b R2, Monoid' m) => Double -> QDiagram b R2 mSource

strutX d is an empty diagram with width d, height 0, and a centered local origin. Note that strutX (-w) behaves the same as strutX w.

strutY :: (Backend b R2, Monoid' m) => Double -> QDiagram b R2 mSource

strutY d is an empty diagram with height d, width 0, and a centered local origin. Note that strutY (-w) behaves the same as strutY w.

padX :: (Backend b R2, Monoid' m) => Double -> QDiagram b R2 m -> QDiagram b R2 mSource

padX s "pads" a diagram in the x-direction, expanding its envelope horizontally by a factor of s (factors between 0 and 1 can be used to shrink the envelope). Note that the envelope will expand with respect to the local origin, so if the origin is not centered horizontally the padding may appear "uneven". If this is not desired, the origin can be centered (using centerX) before applying padX.

padY :: (Backend b R2, Monoid' m) => Double -> QDiagram b R2 m -> QDiagram b R2 mSource

padY s "pads" a diagram in the y-direction, expanding its envelope vertically by a factor of s (factors between 0 and 1 can be used to shrink the envelope). Note that the envelope will expand with respect to the local origin, so if the origin is not centered vertically the padding may appear "uneven". If this is not desired, the origin can be centered (using centerY) before applying padY.

view :: (Backend b R2, Monoid' m) => P2 -> R2 -> QDiagram b R2 m -> QDiagram b R2 mSource

view p v sets the envelope of a diagram to a rectangle whose lower-left corner is at p and whose upper-right corner is at p .+^ v. Useful for selecting the rectangular portion of a diagram which should actually be "viewed" in the final render, if you don't want to see the entire diagram.
