Introduction

OOFCanvas is a replacement for libgnomecanvas, designed for use in OOF2, but hopefully useful elsewhere. OOFCanvas is based on Cairo and is compatible with gtk3. It might eventually also be compatible with gtk+2.

OOF2 used libgnomecanvas to display and interact with images and meshes. But libgnomecanvas requires gtk+2, and gtk+2 works only with Python3, not Python2, and Python2 is being phased out. In order to upgrade OOF2 to Python3, we need to first upgrade it from gtk+2 to Gtk3, and to do that we need to first replace libgnomecanvas.

The canvas is a drawing area that can display a variety of shapes, including text. It can be scrolled, zoomed, and printed. Items drawn on the canvas can be selected with the mouse.

OOFCanvas is not a drop-in replacement for libgnomecanvas. It's also not a full-fledged gtk widget. It's a set of classes that does some of what libgnomecanvas did and uses gtk.

All of the code is in C++. Wrappers for Python 2.7 have been generated by an old version of SWIG, which is included in OOFCanvas. Wrappers for Python 3 will be forthcoming.
