[IPython-User] [IPython-user] matplotlib under ipython
Fri Jun 18 10:03:43 CDT 2010
I am playing with matplotlib under ipython per
http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/users/shell.html When I leave the backend
at the default 'AGG' nothing appears despite what that page implies. I just
see this in my shell:
$ ipython-2.6 -pylab # installed from Macports
Python 2.6.5 (r265:79063, Jun 17 2010, 23:18:57)
. . .
Welcome to pylab, a matplotlib-based Python environment.
For more information, type 'help(pylab)'.
In : x = randn(10000)
In : hist(x, 100)
(array([ 4, 3, 1, 0, 0, 1, 3, 3, 6, 12, 9, 10, 11,
. . .
In : figure()
Out: <matplotlib.figure.Figure object at 0x2d145f0>
In : plot()
In : savefig('test.png') #produces a file with axes but no chart
If I start ipython without the pylab profile (sh instead), import what I
need manually setting the backend to 'macosx', then a window does appear.
Can anyone tell me what is going on here and how it is supposed to work /
what makes the most sense for interactive work? Along those lines is there
a convenient way to get pylab and sh profile behaviors at the same time?
