Py5Graphics.points()
====================
Draw a collection of points, each a coordinate in space at the dimension of one pixel.
Description
-----------
Draw a collection of points, each a coordinate in space at the dimension of one pixel. The purpose of this method is to provide an alternative to repeatedly calling :doc:`py5graphics_point` in a loop. For a large number of points, the performance of ``points()`` will be much faster.
The ``coordinates`` parameter should be a numpy array with one row for each point. There should be two or three columns for 2D or 3D points, respectively.
This method is the same as :doc:`sketch_points` but linked to a ``Py5Graphics`` object. To see example code for how it can be used, see :doc:`sketch_points`.
Underlying Processing method: PGraphics.points
Signatures
----------
.. code:: python
points(
coordinates: npt.NDArray[np.floating], # 2D array of point coordinates with 2 or 3 columns for 2D or 3D points, respectively

) -> None
