Stuck on an issue?

document the structure of trace modules

See original GitHub issue

Motivated by #63 … we should describe this structure somewhere in the contributor’s guide. What’s generally supposed to be the role of attributes, supplyDefaults, supplyLayoutDefaults, calc, setPositions, plot, and style (anything else?), how to tell the difference, and when each of them gets called. Without that it’s pretty hard for new people to make any meaningful contributions to the drawing code. The non-trace modules (axes, annotations, etc…) may still be too ad-hoc for this kind of doc to be useful, but I think the traces are fairly uniform by now.

Of course if this leads us to the desperately needed refactor & modularization of restyle and relayout I wouldn’t complain, but that shouldn’t stop us from documenting what we have.

It would be helpful to know “when each of them gets called”.
