TikZ/pgf is a portable graphics package developed for LaTeX, also supporting ConTeXt. It is a possible alternative to MetaPost & MetaFun.

TikZ is included as a (third party) module for ConTeXt.

## Example

From the TikZ/pgf manual.

\setupcolors[state=start] \definecolor[darkgreen][g=.5] \usemodule[tikz] \starttext \starttikzpicture[ scale=3,line cap=round axes/.style=, important line/.style={very thick}, information text/.style={rounded corners,fill=red!10,inner sep=1ex} ] \draw[help lines,step=0.5cm] (-1.4,-1.4) grid (1.4,1.4); \draw (0,0) circle (1cm); \draw[->] (-1.5,0) -- (1.5,0) node[right] {$x$} coordinate(x axis); \draw[->] (0,-1.5) -- (0,1.5) node[above] {$y$} coordinate(y axis); \foreach \x/\xtext in {-1, -.5/-\frac{1}{2}, 1} \draw[xshift=\x cm] (0pt,1pt) -- (0pt,-1pt) node[below,fill=white] {$\xtext$}; \foreach \y/\ytext in {-1, -.5/-\frac{1}{2}, .5/\frac{1}{2}, 1} \draw[yshift=\y cm] (1pt,0pt) -- (-1pt,0pt) node[left,fill=white] {$\ytext$}; \filldraw[fill=green!20,draw=green!50!black] (0,0) -- (3mm,0pt) arc(0:30:3mm); \draw (15:2mm) node[green!50!black] {$\alpha$}; \draw[important line,red] (30:1cm) -- node[left=1pt,fill=white] {$\sin \alpha$} (30:1cm |- x axis); \draw[important line,blue] (30:1cm |- x axis) -- node[below=2pt,fill=white] {$\cos \alpha$} (0,0); \draw[important line,orange!80!black] (1,0) -- node[right=1pt,fill=white] { $\displaystyle \tan \alpha \black = \frac{{\red \sin \alpha}}{\blue \cos \alpha}$} (intersection of 0,0--30:1cm and 1,0--1,1) coordinate (t); \draw (0,0) -- (t); \draw[xshift=1.85cm] node[right,text width=6cm,information text] { The {\darkgreen angle $\alpha$} is $30^\circ$ in the example ($\pi/6$ in radians). The {\red sine of $\alpha$}, which is the height of the red line, is \startformula {\red \sin \alpha} = 1/2. \stopformula By the Theorem of Pythagoras ... }; \stoptikzpicture \stoptext

## Placing TikZ graphics

You should wrap TikZ graphics inside \hbox when placing them, for example:

\placefigure[here][fig:myfig]{My figure.}{\hbox{\starttikzpicture \draw (0, 0) circle (3cm); \stoptikzpicture}}

Otherwise, positioning will not work (figure will not be centered). See this post by Aditya Mahajan for explanation.

## Example for commutative diagrams

There is a tikz-cd package at CTAN: https://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/graphics/pgf/contrib/tikz-cd?lang=en

In order to use it, download the the file `tikzlibrarycd.code.tex`

and put it in `CONTEXT_HOME/tex/texmf-modules/tex/generic/pgf/libraries/`

. Then run

mtxrun --generate context --make

You should now be able to use tikz-cd.

Makes sure to follow the translation rules in the manual for ConTeXt. In addition to that, it seems that you have to replace the apostrophe with "below".

The first few examples in the manual, which compiled with latest ConTeXt:

\usemodule[tikz] \usetikzlibrary[cd] \starttext \starttikzcd A \arrow{rd} \arrow{r}{𝜑} \NC B \NR \NC C \stoptikzcd \starttikzcd A \arrow[r, "\phi"] \arrow[d, red] \NC B \arrow[d, "\psi" red] \NR C \arrow[r, red, "\eta" blue] \NC D \stoptikzcd \starttikzcd A \arrow[r, "\phi" near start, "\psi" below, "\eta" near end] \NC B \stoptikzcd \starttikzcd T \arrow[drr, bend left, "x"] \arrow[ddr, bend right, "y"] \arrow[dr, dotted, "{(x,y)}" description] \NC \NC \NR \NC X \times_Z Y \arrow[r, "p"] \arrow[d, "q"] \NC X \arrow[d, "f"] \NR \NC Y \arrow[r, "g"] \NC Z \stoptikzcd \starttikzcd[column sep=tiny] \NC \pi_1(U_1) \ar[dr] \ar[drr, "j_1", bend left=20] \NC \NC[1.5em] \NR \pi_1(U_1\cap U_2) \ar[ur, "i_1"] \ar[dr, "i_2" below] \NC \NC \pi_1(U_1) \ast_{ \pi_1(U_1\cap U_2)} \pi_1(U_2) \ar[r, dashed, "\simeq"] \NC \pi_1(X) \NR \NC \pi_1(U_2) \ar[ur]\ar[urr, "j_2" below, bend right=20] \NC \NC \stoptikzcd \stoptext
