Generative tree visualiser for Python
twyg lets you visualise arbitrary tree structures in a pretty way. The appearance of the tree (layout, color, node, connection shapes etc.) is fully controlled via configuration files in a generative way. This means that almost all visual properties of the output can be controlled by expressions that depend on the characteristics of the tree (e.g. the color or shape of a node can be a function of its hierarchical position in the tree). This allows for crafting very flexible configurations that can be applied to trees of arbitrary size and complexity.
Compatible with Python 2.5, 2.6 and 2.7

Fully customisable node and connection shapes and coloring algorithms
High-quality font rendering via Cairo
Gradient and drop shadow support, even in PDF and PostScript files
Custom human-readable configuration language that allows the visual properties of the tree to be defined as expressions of arbitraty complexity
Ability to cascade configurations and configuration sections
