Officially supported backend using cairo.

  • darcs repo

Native SVG

A Haskell-native backend generating SVG. The intention is for this to eventually replace cairo as the "out-of-the-box" diagrams backend.

  • Status: active development
  • Participants: Felipe Lessa, Brent Yorgey

Native Postscript

Very similar to the Cairo backend but only outputting EPS.

A POV-Ray backend for 3D diagrams.
