What is pygtkChart?

pygtkChart is a Python package that provides PyGTK widgets to simply integrate charts into a GTK application. Currently pygtkChart comes with four widgets:

The appearance of the widgets is highly customizable. All bars, graphs or titles on a chart can be accessed and modified separatly.
Colors, backgrounds and many more properties can be modified for each object.

All objects are inherited from gobject.GObject so they live in the GTK main loop and can emit signals e.g. when a bar on BarChart has been clicked.
