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.

* Free software: LGPLv3+
* Documentation: https://vfd.readthedocs.io.


Features
--------
* 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.

Instalation
-----------
To install the latest release, assuming you have a Python_ distribution with pip_::

$ pip install vfd
.. _Python: http://www.python.org/
.. _pip: https://pip.pypa.io/en/stable/installing/

Windows users with no interest in Python might use the deployed installer_ instead.

.. _installer: https://github.com/Dih5/vfd/releases/latest

If you want to enable bash autocompletion add ``eval "$(_VFD_COMPLETE=source vfd)"`` to your ``.bashrc`` file.
