Simple matplotlib-related utility functions.

Project description


This is where I keep matplotlib-related plotting utility functions I have found useful.

To install::

pip install plotutils


How to use `setfig`:

This will create a new figure (same as plt.figure() call in

>>> from plotutils import setfig
>>> setfig(None) #or setfig()

You can also set the current figure to be a given figure number, clear it, and start over, e.g.: `setfig(3)`.

`setfig(0)` will do nothing, implying you want to overplot on the currently active figure.

I use the `setfig` function in every function that I write that makes
a plot, almost always as follows:

.. code-block:: python

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
def my_plot(x,y,fig=None,**kwargs):
