=====

Goocanvas [1] is a canvas widget for GTK+, It is similar in many ways to FooCanvas, hence the name, but it uses cairo for rendering, it has an optional model/view split, and uses interfaces for items views (so you can easily turn any application object into a canvas item or view).

PyGooCanvas is a wrapper which exposes the goocanvas API to the python world. It is fairly complete; most of the API are covered.

The documentation is done, anyway bug reports on docs are really important to improve the documentation.

Like the GTK+ library, PyGTK and GooCanvas itself PyGooCanvas is licensed under the GNU LGPL, so is suitable for use in both free software and proprietary applications.

PyGooCanvas requires:
====================

o Goocanvas gt;= 0.8.0
o PyGObject gt;= 2.10.1 (2.11.3 to build the docs)
o PyGTK gt;= 2.10.4
o PyCairo gt;= 1.2.0
