MetaPost Applications

For more current information, see What appears below is primarily of historical interest.

METAGRAF is an interactive drawing tool based on MetaPost and runs in Java.

Laurence Finston's 3DLDF is a package for 3D drawing with MetaPost output.

Finomoton allows you to draw a finite state machine interactively and then export it to plain MetaPost format.

Another application package that uses MetaPost is Thorsten Ohl's feynmf for drawing Feynman diagrams.

CERN is publishing a tutorial. Pointers to the tutorials appear on Ohl's home page.

I have also been told that gnuplot can produce MetaPost output.

Numerous contributed MetaPost macro packages appear in CTAN under graphics/metapost/contrib/macros. Another macro package is blockdraw.
