Pytplot is a python package which aims to mimic the functionality of the IDL "tplot" libraries. The primary routine (tplot) generates HTML files for the specified plots, and automatically opens the files in a browser tab. These files have several user interaction tools built in, such as zooming and panning.
Pytplot can be used in python scripts, or interactively through IPython and the Jupyter notebook.
You will need Python version 3.5 to run pytplot.
It is recommended that you install `Anaconda <https: www.continuum.io="" downloads=""/>`_, as it comes with a suite of packages that are useful for data science.
You could also install python directly from `python.org <https: www.python.org="" download=""/>`_.
Open up a terminal, and type::
pip install pytplot
This will install pytplot and all of it's dependencies.
To start using pytplot in a similar manner to IDL tplot, start up an interactive environment through the terminal command::
or, if you prefer the jupyter interactive notebook::
then, just import the package by typing the command::
