MetaPost Applications

For more current information, see http://www.tug.org/metapost.html. 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.
