Goocanvas [1] is a canvas widget for GTK+, It is similar in many ways
to  FooCanvas, hence the name, but it uses cairo for rendering, it has
an optional  model/view split, and uses interfaces for items & views
(so you can easily turn any application object into a canvas item or

PyGooCanvas is a wrapper which exposes the goocanvas API to the
python world.  It is fairly complete; most of the API are covered.

The documentation is done, anyway bug reports on docs are really
important to improve the documentation.

Like the GTK+ library, PyGTK and GooCanvas itself PyGooCanvas is
licensed under  the GNU LGPL, so is suitable for use in both
free software and proprietary applications.

PyGooCanvas requires:

 o Goocanvas >= 0.13
 o PyGObject >= 2.10.1 (2.11.3 to build the docs)
 o PyGTK >= 2.10.4
 o PyCairo >= 1.4.0

Bug reports should go to
