cs1graphics

It is described in the paper A Graphics Package for the First Day and Beyond and used as part of the textbook Object-Oriented Programming in Python.


News:

23 July 2014

Full release of version 1.2 is available for download.

Note: we now provide both multithreaded and singlethreaded releases, which differ only in a single Boolean flag that is set in the configuration near the top of the module. The multithreaded configuration is the prefered model for full support of event handling in cs1graphics, and it has been successfully tested on Windows, Linux, and on third-party python installations on OSX. The singlethreaded configuration is primarily designed to extend support for the default Python/Tk installation on many versions of OSX, for which there have been documented problems (e.g., see discussion).
