Shoebot is a creative coding environment designed for making vector graphics and animations with Python. It's geared towards playful graphic exploration, creating SVG images for pen plotters, and is a great tool for automated/headless image generation. In this lightning talk we will quickly demo what Shoebot can do, and what is made possible in the new 1.4 version, the most significant update in recent years.

After years of slow development, we have just published the most significant update yet, with lots of improvements and new features ready to explore. Some of our favourite highlights are variable font support, advanced typographic options, and pretty fast rendering. On the development side of things, a new unit test framework was put in place, making it possible to find and crush several bugs. As a result, Shoebot is more reliable than ever.

To top our excitement, we have launched a new extension for the Atom text editor. It's now much simpler and pleasant to experiment with scripts, shapes and outcomes.

We've put a lot of work on other parts of Shoebot as well: the project documentation was redesigned with many additions and edits, along with a cleaner project home page.

In this lightning talk we will quickly demo what Shoebot can do, and what is made possible by all these recent additions.
