Project Description

These bindings provide an object oriented API to the potrace library.

Example usage

The bindings work with input images represented as numpy arrays:

import numpy as np
import potrace

# Make a numpy array with a rectangle in the middle
data = np.zeros((32, 32), np.uint32)
data[8:32-8, 8:32-8] = 1

# Create a bitmap from the array
bmp = potrace.Bitmap(data)

# Trace the bitmap to a path
path = bmp.trace()

# Iterate over path curves
for curve in path:
    print "start_point =", curve.start_point
    for segment in curve:
        print segment
        end_point_x, end_point_y = segment.end_point
        if segment.is_corner:
            c_x, c_y = segment.c
        else:
            c1_x, c1_y = segment.c1
            c2_x, c2_y = segment.c2

Installation

Make sure you have the agg and potrace development packages installed (libagg-dev and libpotrace-dev on ubuntu) and run:

python setup.py install

Building on Windows

Thanks to klonuo for the instructions

Here are instruction how to make this package work on Windows, by using MinGW system. Probably it can be done with Visual Studio, but I lack skills to make such magic.

So assuming user has MinGW available, additional two packages are needed:

  1. potrace source: http://potrace.sourceforge.net/#downloading
  2. agg source: http://www.antigrain.com/download/index.html

I extracted both packages in my C:\src folder. Both are easy to build by executing ./configure; make and ./autogen.sh; make respectively, on MSYS prompt.

After that, we need some variables to build pypotrace successfully:

First, includes paths:

  • “numpy/arrayobject.h”: C:/Python27/Lib/site-packages/numpy/core/include
  • potrace headers: C:/src/potrace-1.11/src
  • agg headers: C:/src/agg-2.5

there is a little catch for agg includes, as paths referenced in cpp sources point to agg2/*.h while in downloaded agg package we don’t have agg2 folder. For me it was easiest to rename C:/src/agg-2.5/include to C:/src/agg-2.5/agg2 and use C:/src/agg-2.5 as agg include folder.

Next, libdirs for libraries we build above:

  • potrace: C:/src/potrace-1.11/src/.libs
  • agg: C:/src/agg-2.5/src

and we can make pypotrace build command, and execute it:

python setup.py build_ext -IC:/Python27/Lib/site-packages/numpy/core/include;C:/src/potrace-1.11/src;C:/src/agg-2.5 -LC:/src/potrace-1.11/src/.libs;C:/src/agg-2.5/src

Finally install the package:
