1 Overview

(gnome canvas) wraps the Gnome-Canvas library for Guile. It is a part of Guile-GNOME.

Libgnomecanvas is a retained-mode canvas: you tell it what should be on it, and it handles redraw operations for you. It is a bit dated, in that it is backed by a library called “libart” and not Cairo, but no clear successor has emerged yet.

The source distribution has a fairly comprehensive example; see examples/canvas.scm for more information.

See the documentation for (gnome gobject) for more information on Guile-GNOME.
