A small matplotlib wrapper/UI for creating publication-ready plots, graphs, and images

Project Description
# SciPlot-PyQt: Publication-ready scientific plotting for Python #

SciPlot-PyQt (aka SciPlot) is a user-interface/matplotlib wrapper built with
PyQt5 that allows interactive plotting through an embedded matplotlib canvas.
It enables fast and easy publication-ready plots and images:
* Interactive plotting
* Theme and style editing (TODO)
* Figure saving and opening for later editing (TODO)

## Installation ##
# Make new directory for crikit2 and enter it
# Clone from github
git clone

# Install (mainly check installation)
pip install -e .

# IMPORTANT: You will need to manually install PyQt5 and Qt5
# These packages are not pip-installable at this time

## Usage ##
import sciplot
sp = sciplot.main()

## Example ##
sp.plot((0,1),(2,3),label='Line', x_label='X', y_label='Y', ls='--')
sp.fill_between((0,1),(1,2),(3,4),label='Fill Between', color='r', alpha=0.25)

sp.hist(r, bins=100, label='Histogram', color=[0, .2, .3],
x_label='Amplitude', y_label='Counts', alpha=0.5)

sp.imshow(r, clim=[25,75], cmap='viridis', label='Imshow', x_label='X (pix)',
y_label='Y (pix)')
## Dependencies##

Note: These are the developmental system specs. Older versions of certain
packages may work.

* Python >= 3.4
* Numpy (1.9.3)
* PyQT5 (5.5.1)
* Matplotlib (1.5.0rc3)
