[IPython-dev] Fwd: [matplotlib-devel] OpenGL backend with Galry
Sat Nov 17 22:10:21 CST 2012
impressive job by Cyrille Rossant after I gave him just a few quick
pointers on how the JSON handling and WebGL integration had to be set
up; this provides fast 2-d visualization in the notebook with a
matplotlib-like API but using WebGL for the rendering.

OK so I now have a very experimental proof of concept of how
integrating Galry in the IPython notebook. There's a short demo here:
I'll put the code on github but there's of course much more to do.
I'll also work on a basic matplotlib-like high-level interface that
will work in both standard python/ipython consoles, and in the IPython
