Outdated egg!

This is an egg for CHICKEN 4, the unsupported old release. You're almost certainly looking for the CHICKEN 5 version of this egg, if it exists.

If it does not exist, there may be equivalent functionality provided by another egg; have a look at the egg index. Otherwise, please consider porting this egg to the current version of CHICKEN.

cairo

Chicken bindings for Cairo, a vector graphics library.

Usage

(require-extension cairo)

Documentation

To build this extension, you will need a current version of cairo. To build/run the test-program, the sdl egg is required.

Currently there is no documentation, see the source-files for more information.

Examples

By Christian Kellermann:

(import scheme (chicken base) cairo miscmacros (chicken random))

(define *rotation* 0)
(define *delta* 2.7)
(define *width* 18)
(define *height* 26)
(define *box-size* 15)

(define s (cairo-pdf-surface-create "schotter.pdf" 842 1190)) ; A3
(define c (cairo-create s))

;; use millimeters as units from here on
(cairo-scale c (/ 72 25.4) (/ 72 25.4))
(cairo-set-source-rgba c 1 0 0 1)

(dotimes (y *height*)
  (dotimes (x *width*)
    (cairo-save c)
    (cairo-set-line-width c .3)
    (cairo-translate c (+ 12 (* x *box-size*)) (+ 16 (* y *box-size*)))
    (cairo-rotate c (* (if (> 1 (pseudo-random-integer 2)) -1 1)
                       (/ cairo-pi 180)
                       (* *rotation*  (pseudo-random-real))))
    (cairo-rectangle c 0 0 *box-size* *box-size*)
    (cairo-set-source-rgba c 0 0 0 1)
    (cairo-stroke c)
    (cairo-restore c))
  (set! *rotation* (+ *rotation* *delta*)))

(cairo-surface-show-page s)
(cairo-destroy c)
(cairo-surface-finish s)
(cairo-surface-destroy s)
