Biggles : Scientific Plotting with/in/for Python

https://travis-ci.org/biggles-plot/biggles.svg?branch=master

Biggles is a Python module for creating publication-quality 2D scientific plots. It supports multiple output formats (postscript, x11, png, svg, gif), understands simple TeX, and sports a high-level, elegant interface. It's intended for technical users with sophisticated plotting needs.

Simple Example

Here's a simple biggles script:

>>> import biggles
>>> x = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]
>>> y = [5, 4, 3, 2, 1]
>>> p = biggles.FramedPlot()
>>> p.add(biggles.Curve(x, y))
>>> p.show()

This produces an X window with a framed plot of the curve y(x). You can find more in the examples directory included with the source distribution. Also, see the gallery on the web.

See the full documentation for more details.
