  Description     : OpenGL interactive scientific visualization

 Vispy is an OpenGL-based interactive visualization library in
 Python. Its goal is to make it easy to create beautiful and fast
 dynamic visualizations. For example, scientific plotting of tens of
 millions of points, interacting with complex polygonial models, and
 (dynamic) volume rendering. All thanks to the graphics card’s
 hardware acceleration.
 Vispy will eventually offer graphical APIs at multiple levels,
 including a matplotlib-like scientific plotting library. Currently,
 only the lowest-level API is implemented: it brings an easy-to-use
 Pythonic object-oriented interface to OpenGL. This layer requires you
 to have basic knowledge of modern OpenGL (notably the OpenGL shading
 language, GLSL).
 We are currently working on higher level layers. They will hide most
 OpenGL concepts and let you create beautiful visualizations in a few
 lines of code. Stay tuned!

This package will be maintained under the debian-science team umbrella
