wumpus-basic: Common drawing utilities built on wumpus-core.
** WARNING ** - this package is sub-alpha, it was released to Hackage prematurely and while its capabilities have improved with subsequent updates it is arguably becoming even less stable and more experimental (unfortunately the only thing consistent about the API is that it consistently changes...).
Version 0.13.0 significantly differs form the previous release
as font metrics support has been added and the core graphic
types have been redesigned. With these re-workings some modules
that were previously fairly stable have changed substantially or
are likely to change soon (
Basic.PictureLanguage has become
Basic.SafeFonts no longer seems
very SVG safe so it is marked as pending change).
NOTE - many of the demos now use font metrics. Font metrics for
the "Core 14" PostScript fonts are distributed as
files with GhostScript in the
fonts directory. Wumpus expects
the GhostScript font metrics to be AFM version 2.0 files (this
matches GhostScript 8.63). Alternatively, metrics for the Core
14 fonts are available from Adode (AFM version 4.1), see the
links below. To run the demos properly you will need one of
these sets of metrics.

WARNING - the font metrics parsing in version 0.13.0 is essentially a proof-of-concept and is not very robust. Generally, if a font cannot be parsed, fallback metrics will be used. At the moment there no error logging, so there is little indication of whether Wumpus has used the correct metrics or the fallback for a requested font.
12.0 to 0.13.0:
Major changes to
Drawingand is substantially re-worked. Graphic functional types are now encapulated in the Drawing constructor
Drawing (ctx -> pt -> prim)rather than partially outside it
pt -> Drawing (ctx -> prim).
Rudimentary font loading added, only AFM files are supported.
Basic.Shapes.Coordinatere-worked. The Coordinate type is now more like the Shapes types (excepting the intentional difference in drawing style).
