IPE - extensible drawing editor
Closed, WontfixPublic


Name: ipe
Why? :

Ipe - extensible drawing editor is a toole, like inkscape, for drawing vector graphics. However, where inkscape is very free hand, IPE makes sure to constrain you to grids or angles. This makes it ideal for drawing physichs and math figures. It creates figures nearly on level with programatic figure programs (tikz, matplotlib or something like that), however more user friendly than those)

JoshStrobl added a project: Needs Maintainer.

Lua 5.3 subtask has been resolved for almost a year and this has sat in accepted for inclusion for over a year now. Clearly, there is a lack of demand for the inclusion of this software, nobody has stepped up to provide a patch, maintain it, and properly integrate it. Closing as a result. Feel free to reopen but only when someone offers a patch via our proper patch submission methods and volunteers to be maintainer.
