Python Graphics Library

Dear all,

Could you please recommend me a graphics library for python. I saw PYX
which has nice screenshots on the webpage.

My first ambition is to be able to draw 2D or 3D graphs for my
mathematical results. Maybe later, I can handle other types of
graphical operations.

Regards.

Have you seen matplotlib?

PIL (Python Imaging Library) is the "standard" Python graphics library.
It is used to create images in the form of pictures and saving as .png,
..jpg, or whatever.

Also check out ReportLab and my constant recommendation, VPython.
http://www.reportlab.org
-- generate PDFs.
http://www.vpython.org
-- 3(or 2)-D as interactive display graphics. It
gives real 3-D graphics (mouse can roll & zoom).
VPython can also put out POV-Ray source
( http://www.povray.org ).
