Helper functions and context manager to make it easier to save matplotlib plots as images.

Project description


A library of functions (just one at the moment) to streamline the saving and exporting of matplotlib plots as images and whatnot.

I wrote it because I was spending a lot of time creating and saving plots in another project of mine and wanted to automate it.


from matplotsave import pltsave

xs = list(range(10))
ys = [i**2 for i in xs]
with pltsave("myplot.png") as (fig,ax):

This will export the plot to myplot.png painlessly after you are given the chance to actually plot some data.

Because the pltsave context manager returns the fig and ax objects the entire matplotlib api is still accessible.
