simple, elegant python plotting
Biggles is a Python module for creating publication-quality 2D scientific plots. It supports multiple output formats (postscript, x11, png, svg, gif), understands simple TeX, and sports a high-level, elegant interface. It’s intended for technical users with sophisticated plotting needs.
Here’s a simple biggles script:
>>> import biggles >>> x = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5] >>> y = [5, 4, 3, 2, 1] >>> p = biggles.FramedPlot() >>> p.add(biggles.Curve(x, y)) >>> p.show()
This produces an X window with a framed plot of the curve y(x). You can find more in the examples directory included with the source distribution. Also, see the gallery on the web.
See the full documentation for more details.
Biggles requires numpy and GNU plotutils.
$ sudo port install plotutils +x11 $ pip install biggles
$ brew install plotutils --with-x11 $ pip install biggles
$ sudo apt-get libplot-dev plotutils $ pip install biggles
This kind of install is not well tested at the moment. Please report bugs if you find them!
