Pastel is a cross-platform C++ / Matlab library for geometry and computer graphics.

Source code

The source code for TIM is hosted on BitBucket in a Mercurial repository. Assuming you have Mercurial installed, the repository can be cloned from the command-line by

hg clone

The source code always reflects the current development; it is unstable. To obtain the source code corresponding to this version, write

hg update -r 1.4.0

For previous versions, see the release history


Pastel is licensed under the MIT license.

While this allows you to build your own programs using Pastel, I do not recommend you do this. This is because Pastel is still under development and is thus prone to break backwards-compatibility. Rather, consider it from an educational viewpoint containing implementations and documentations of useful data structures and algorithms.
