Graphite is a Python graphing package currently under development. Graphite will enable the easy creation of scientific, engineering, and business graphs. Some graph types to be included are line graphs, bar charts, function plots, polar plots, parametric plots, and mesh plots. Graphite will be able to produce output for formats such as poscript, pdf, gif, QuickDraw, Tk. It will also have interactive capability (e.g., positioning labels and other overlays via the mouse or arrow keys), and should run on any platform that supports Python.
