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

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 a work in progress, needs quite a lot of work in
order to reflect the new API, a lot of new examples are provided,
anyway help will be greatly appreciated.

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;= 0.6.0
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

Bug reports should go to
