DrawBot is a free MacOS application that makes it easy to use the Python programming language to draw two-dimensional graphics. DrawBot was conceived by typeface designer Just van Rossum as a tool to teach the Python programming language to his design students, and in the last five years or so DrawBot’s development has been pushed forward by Frederik Berlaen, an alumnus of Just’s course. If Just van Rossum’s name sounds familiar, it’s no coincidence — his brother Guido van Rossum authored the Python programming language!
Learn how to use DrawBot on MacOS, from some Python basics to graphics to some very lovely effects. See the guide today.
