Messing around with Graphics.py -new article

Fri Apr 12, 2019 2:38 pm

Hi

I've written a short article, aimed at beginners, about using John Zelle's graphics.py to draw some simple mathematical patterns. You can do quite a bit with a few lines or code, just by plotting points. For example, this thing:

Built with sin and cos functions. Back in the 80s this took 10 minutes to draw this on a Dragon 32. Your Pi can do it in 7 seconds, you lucky people...

Cheers,
Jim
PS I wasn't sure where best to post this, hope this is the right forum.

Incidentally if you just want to try the program, here it is on Github: blanc.py
