Project Description

# bashplotlib plotting in the terminal

<img src=”examples/img/basichist.png”>

## what is it? bashplotlib is a python package and command line tool for making basic plots in the terminal. It’s a quick way to visualize data when you don’t have a GUI. It’s written in pure python and can quickly be installed anywhere using pip.

## installation ### install with pip ` $ pip install bashplotlib ` ### install from source ` $ git clone git@github.com:glamp/bashplotlib.git $ cd bashplotlib $ python setup.py install `

Either method will install the bashplotlib python package and will also add <code>hist</code> and <code>scatter</code> to your python scripts folder. This folder should be on your path (add it if it’s not).

## features

  • quick plotting from the command line
  • customize the color, size, title, and shape of plots
  • pipe data into plots with stdin

## usage ### command line <code>hist</code> takes input from either stdin or specified using the -f parameter. Input should be a single column of numbers. <img src=”examples/img/histhelp.png”> <code>scatter</code> takes x and y coordinates as input form either a comma delimited file using -f or from 2 different files using -x and -y. <img src=”examples/img/scatterhelp.png”>

### in python If you want to use bashplotlib from python, just import histogram and scatterplot. ` from bashplotlib.scatterplot import plot_scatter ` <img src=”examples/img/scatterplothelp.png”> ` from bashplotlib.histogram import plot_hist ` <img src=”examples/img/histogramhelp.png”>

##examples ` $ scatter --file data/texas.txt --pch . ` <img src=”examples/img/texas.png”>

` $ hist --file data/exp.txt ` <img src=”examples/img/histogram.png”>

` $ scatter -x data/x_test.txt -y data/y_test.txt ` <img src=”examples/img/scatter.png”>

##todo

  • sideways numbers for x-axis of histograms
  • colors for individual points
  • line charts
  • trendlines
