Project description

dotmatrix

A dot matrix rendered using braille characters.

Description

This library provides class called Matrix which represents a dot matrix that can be rendered to a string of Braille characters. In addition the class also provides some usefull functions for drawing all kinds of things onto said matrix.

Install

Use can install this library from PyPI:

pip install dotmatrix

Example

Code

from dotmatrix import Matrix

m = Matrix(64, 64)

m.rectangle((0, 0), (63, 63))
m.circle((31, 31), 31)

print(m.render())

Output

Drawing functions

As of now this library contains the following drawing functions:

  • scatter – Scatters some points.
  • show – Draws an object implementing the Dotted protocol.
  • line – Draws a line.
  • chain – Draws a chain of segments.
  • polygon – Draws a polygon.
  • rectangle – Draws an axis aligned rectangle. (from a simplified representation, i.e. from two opposing corners)
  • cricle – Draws a circle.
  • ellipse – Draws an axis aligned ellipse.
  • plot – Plots a series of XY-coordinates. (matplotlib.pyplot style)
  • plotf – Plots a function.
  • curve – Draws a Bézier curve.

Implementing the Dotted protocol for any class comes down to adding a __dots__ function to your class:

def __dots__(self) -> Iterable[Tuple[int, int]]:
    """Generate the pixel positions representing this object."""

⚠️  The origin or the coordinate system, i.e. (0, 0), is at the top left corner!

More examples

Bézier curves

Code

from dotmatrix import Matrix

m = Matrix(64, 64)

m.curve((0, 0), (63, 0), (0, 63), (63, 63))
m.curve((0, 0), (0, 63), (63, 0), (63, 63))
m.curve((63, 0), (0, 0), (63, 63), (0, 63))
m.curve((63, 0), (63, 63), (0, 0), (0, 63))

print(m.render())

Function plotting

Code

from dotmatrix import Matrix

m = Matrix(64, 64)

m.plotf(
    lambda x: 0.005 * x ** 3,
    range(-31, 31),
    origin=(31,31),
)

print(m.render())
