pgf – A Portable Graphic Format for

CI

PGF is a macro package for generating graphics. It is platform- and format-independent and works together with the most important backend drivers, including pdftex and dvips. It comes with a user-friendly syntax layer called TikZ.

See the directory doc/generic/pgf for more information. See the file doc/generic/pgf/pgfmanual.pdf (also available from https://pgf-tikz.github.io/pgf/pgfmanual.pdf) for a manual. This documentation also explains the installation. See the file doc/generic/pgf/license/LICENSE for license details.

Please go to the official repository at https://github.com/pgf-tikz/pgf or the official mailing list at https://tug.org/mailman/listinfo/pgf-tikz to submit bug reports, request new features, etc.

Installation

In general you should just use the version of PGF that is shipped by your distribution. See their documentation on how to install packages.

If you are feeling adventurous you can install the latest development version in Live from our tlcontrib repository.

$ tlmgr repository add http://pgf-tikz.github.io/pgf/tlnet pgf-development
$ tlmgr pinning add pgf-development "*"
$ tlmgr update --self --all
$ tlmgr install pgf --reinstall

Development

Currently PGF does not have a comprehensive test suite to check for regressions, so for now we check for bugs by building the manual for each commit. To build the manual locally you can either copy the PGF repository into your texmf tree (not recommended) or use the usertree option of Live. For the usertree option on GNU/Linux, follow these steps:

$ git clone https://github.com/pgf-tikz/pgf
$ tlmgr init-usertree --usertree pgf
$ export TEXMFHOME=$(readlink -f pgf)
$ cd pgf
$ texlua build.lua manual luatex

We recommend building at least the version for Lua, as shown in the example above because this has the broadest coverage of PGF features. To test the animations feature you have to build the version for dvisvgm.

pgf – Create PostScript and PDF graphics in

PGF is a macro package for creating graphics. It is platform- and format-independent and works together with the most important backend drivers, including pdf and dvips. It comes with a user-friendly syntax layer called TikZ.

Its usage is similar to pstricks and the standard picture environment. PGF works with plain (pdf-), (pdf-), and Cont. Unlike pstricks, it can produce either PostScript or PDF output.
