A few weeks ago I wrote about Lattice drawings. I mentioned that I had used a Python program to produce the figures there, and of course, was asked in the comments to publish the program. I didn’t, because the program was an unpresentable piece of crap. I had to edit text files, and then the program would draw the result. Yuk.
So last week while I was on vacation, I wrote a new program, called Platitude. This is a GUI application that lets you manipulate the lattice with the mouse. It still is very bare bones, but I wanted to get it out the door. I consider it a presentable piece of crap.
Try it and see what you think. It’s available as a Windows executable, and Python source. If someone could help me understand why I get bitmap errors on the Mac, that would be fabulous!
