Redesigning my circle diagrams, part 2 #

In the previous post I described how I redesigned some of the diagrams on my circle drawing page. I found that I had been reusing code in ways that made the diagrams worse. I switched to more copy-paste programming to make the diagrams better.

Redesigning my circle diagrams, part 1 #

Linus Arver's post about circle drawing reminded me that I wanted to add circle outlines to my circle fill page. My page is focused on circle fill rather than outline, but one of the fill algorithms can be adapted to generate outlines instead. I added a section on circle outlines, reusing the code from the circle fill diagrams. Unfortunately … I didn't like the result.
