Matplotlib Style Gallery
This is a simple Flask application to compare different Matplotlib styles.
A static version of this gallery, without support for generating plots for custom inputs, can be found here: http://tonysyu.github.io/raw_content/matplotlib-style-gallery/gallery.html
To start up the gallery, make sure that this module is in your python path (either by installing it or just changing to this directory) and execute:
$ python -m mpl_style_gallery
This will fire up a local server with the gallery app running and open your web-browser to that page.
After you've run the application for first time, you don't need to re-build the images for the gallery (unless you've added your own plot scripts), so you can skip the plotting as follows:
$ python -m mpl_style_gallery --skip-build
Adding your own styles
Comparing the default styles is great, but what if you want to test something different?
This app provides two ways to add your own stylesheets:
- Find a stylesheet online and copy the URL into the app's input area.
- Create a stylesheet on the fly by adding valid matplotlibrc syntax. into the input area of the application.
Adding your own plot-scripts
If you have a plot script that you believe would help others decide which is the best stylesheet, pull requests are welcome!
To test out your own plot script, just grab a copy of this project and drop any plotting script into the scripts directory:
To run the gallery, you don't actually need to install this package. You can simply grab the source and run the package as a script:
$ git clone https://github.com/tonysyu/matplotlib-style-gallery.git $ cd matplotlib-style-gallery $ python -m mpl_style_gallery
