tilings – A TikZ library for drawing tiles and tilings

This package provides a TikZ library for working with tiles, tilings, and tessellations. Using it, one can define tiles, place tiles, deform tiles, and — in some cases — apply replacement rules to generate tessellations. It has pre-defined tiles for most of the Penrose tile sets and the aperiodical polykite tiles.

This is a replacement for the penrose package, renamed as it now deals with more extensive tiles than just the Penrose tile sets.
