pyafg – affine fractal generator   Leave a comment


pyafg is an affine fractal generator written in python and using PIL and pygame for image rendering. It can save fractals as an image, or view fractals being generated with pygame. Included is libifs, a flexible library for drawing affine fractals. This can easily be extended to add different colorings and outputs (GTK anyone? :).


  • Powerful command line options
  • Save generated image in png format
  • Transform Viewer
  • Many different colorization algorithms
  • libifs makes it very easy to extend
  • Free under the GNU GPL v2


You can get the latest version from my github repo:

The source (should) has all the info you need to get started.


Check out my flickr set for images of fractals generated with it:
