Painter

I could not for the life of me find a solid module for generating simple images from Node. Enter Painter. It uses SVG to hold the current representation, then renders that representation out to other formats on request.

Installation

npm install painter

Usage Example

```
var Painter = require('painter')
  , map

map = Painter.createPainter({
  width: 400,
  height: 400
})

map.polygon({
  stroke: {
    color: 'black',
    width: 5
  },
  fill: 'none',
  points: [
    { x: 200, y: 100 },
    { x: 300, y: 100 },
    { x: 300, y: 200 },
    { x: 100, y: 200 },
    { x: 100, y: 300 },
    { x: 200, y: 300 }
  ]
})

map.render('./map.svg')
```

Output Formats

  • SVG (Surprised?)

Other formats pending. Patches welcome.

TODO

  • Make some better documentation. Until then, don't be afraid to look at the source code. Promise it won't byte.
  • Have ideas? Send me an email (or a patch!)
