aaaand applying the calligraphic effect to handwriting data (specifically, random glyphs from https://github.com/aparrish/chars74k-json-dump)
after trying to do graphics in python for however many years, I wish python had a Commonly Accepted Way to represent 2D vectors (or n-dimensional vectors for that matter)—like something in the std lib that showed up in introductory chapters of non-specialist python tutorials. I find myself switching between lists of 2-tuples, keeping x and y in separate aligned lists, x and y as individual parameters, numpy arrays *in the same project* depending on the libraries I'm using 🙃
@aparrish unghhh and matplotlib doesn't even sensibly handle 2d numpy arrays, except for certain functions which behave differently
