wumpus-basic: Common drawing utilities built on wumpus-core.
** WARNING ** - this package is sub-alpha. It was released to Hackage prematurely - designing a higher-level drawing library turns out to be much more demanding than designing a low-level one (Wumpus-Core).
Some of the modules (SafeFonts, SVGColours, X11Colours) are
relatively stable. The core modules of
DrawingContext) seem to support a good set
primitive functions, but the exact types of drawing objects do
not feel right at the moment. Other modules (Paths, Chains,
Shapes) are essentially sketches and are expected to be
substantially revised in subsequent updates.
Version 0.11.0 is an interim release. It is expected that the
next release will substantially rework Shapes and likely change
Graphic.Base types. As quite a large amount of code has
already changed since version 0.10.0 (to support better
arrowheads and connectors) it seems sensible to release 0.11.0
now, rather than have a huge delta after Shapes have been
reworked again. The current versions of
Wumpus-Microprint will work with version 0.11.0 if their
.cabal files are edited to bump the version number.
There will be no matching releases to work automatically with
version 0.11.0 of Wumpus-Basic.
10.0 to 0.11.0:
Reworked arrowheads and connectors - connectors are now configurable: there are functions to make connectors with a left arrowhead, right arrowhead, none or both.
Reworked shapes - internally shapes now create a
Pathrather than a
Graphicthis means the path can be manipulated (e.g. round cornered rectangles, diamonds... can be constructed).
Coordinateis no longer a
Shape- it is now similar object but of a different type. Likewise,
FreeLabelhas been replaced by
Plaintextwhich is not a
Shape, but has some similar properties. Unfortunately, the Shape types are still difficult to work with and a larger reworking is still necessary.
PathEmptyconstructor removed so empty paths cannot be created. This allows a better API for taking points on a path. It also means
Pathis no longer an instance of Monoid. Type changes to various functions (e.g.
tipL) reflecting that as paths cannot now be empty, functions on them can generally be total.
toPrimPathUremoved as converting to a PrimPath as now always safe.
Basic.Graphic- the types
ConnGraphicetc. have had their names expanded to
Basic.SafeFont- font names changed to use underscore separators rather than camelCase. Wumpus generally uses underscored names for constants.
Basic.Graphic.Drawing. Connectors should be used instead.
Applicativeas a superclass.
