Expand description

Rust plotting library using Python (Matplotlib)

This library generates plots by calling python3 after generating a python script. The name of the python script is based on the name of the figure (png, svg, …). If an error occurs, a log file is created (also named as the figure).

The main idea here is to create objects such as Curve, Contour, Histogram, or Surface and add it to a plot using the add command. The plot may also configured using the methods of Plot.

Each object (e.g. Curve, Legend, Text) defines a number of configuration options that can be directly set on the object. Then, the draw method of each object must be called before adding to Plot.


let x = &[1.0, 2.0, 3.0, 4.0, 5.0, 6.0, 7.0, 8.0];
let y = &[1.0, 4.0, 9.0, 16.0, 25.0, 36.0, 49.0, 64.0];
let mut curve = Curve::new();
curve.draw(x, y);

let mut plot = Plot::new();
plot.grid_and_labels("x", "y");"/tmp/plotpy/example_main.svg"))?;



Generates a contour plot

Generates a curve (aka line-plot) given two arrays (x,y)

Generates a Histogram plot

Generates a Legend

Driver structure that calls Python

Draw polygonal shapes

Generates a 3D a surface (or wireframe, or both)

Creates text to be added to a plot
