VFD (Vernacular Figure Description) is a JSON-based description system for plots. It aims to describe *what* needs to be
plotted, while *how* it is done is decided when the files are opened. This allows to generate a set of files describing
the plots, which can latter be batch-processed to produce a consistent set of figures.

Also check for tools to use it from other applications.

* Free software: LGPLv3+
* Documentation:

* Describe and plot:
* Scatter plots
* Error bars
* Color maps (from arrays of 2D data)
* Multiple plots in one file
* Two *x* or *y* axes in the same plot
* GUI, CLI and python package to plot the files with matplotlib.
* API mimicking matplotlib's to generate files without changing your code.
* File format will be always backward-compatible. While version < 1.0.0, CLI and API might change.
