A full featured Tk-based knot and link editor

Project description

PLink is a full featured graphical editor for knot and link projections, using the cross-platform GUI toolkit Tk. The primary focus is on piecewise-linear link projections, but it also supports a “smooth mode” and can export images in PostScript, PDF, SVG, and TikZ formats. See the PLink home page for complete details.

This is a pure Python module and you can install it via pip. See the documentation for more.
