A simple, embeddable Matplotlib-based image viewer.


Typically mplview is used within the context of the Jupyter Notebook. Though it can also be used with any interactive GUI backend that matplotlib provides. Below is a brief example of how this works in the Jupyter Notebook with some dummy data. Similar usage can be applied to other contexts.

# Run the following in your Notebook
# %matplotlib notebook

import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
from mplview.core import MatplotlibViewer

arr = np.random.random((25, 30, 35))

mplsv = plt.figure(FigureClass=MatplotlibViewer)

The array provided to set the images must provide a reasonable subset of the NumPy array interface (primarily slicing and coercion to NumPy Arrays). This allows other array types to be used for visualization easily (e.g. Dask Arrays).


This package was created with Cookiecutter and the nanshe-org/nanshe-cookiecutter project template.
