I have released Version 1.0 beta of wxPyPlot for producing simple plots in wxPython. Since the alpha3 release I have optimized the speed for markers and fixed a small bug in location in the y-axis label.
For your viewing pleasure, the website now has some html docs as well as a few more screen shots of things. Check out: http://www.cyberus.ca/~g_will/wxPython/wxpyplot.html
Comments and suggestions welcome.
------------------------------------------------------------- What is wxPyPlot??
wxPyPlot is an enhanced derivative version of wxPlotCanvas to provide simple lightweight plotting in wxPython. The emphasis is both on simple and lightweight.
Before starting this work I looked at two plotting packages that could be adapted to work with wxPython. SciPy Plt and Chaco are sophisticated and powerful, but at the expense of consuming huge amounts of computer resources for simple plots. They can be found at http://scipy.com. I was looking for something that could be incorporated into a Boa application and had the ability to plot lines with large numbers of points quickly for data capture applications. wxPlotCanvas had the speed and some of the functionality that I was looking for, but lacked a lot of features that I needed. This effort has filled the gap.
Features: - Automatic Scaling of Axes - Legends for lines and markers - Plot Title and Axis Labels - Zoom Region with Mouse (Rubber Band) or Programmatically - Scroll Up/Down, Left/Right - Plot Grid (Graticule) on Graph - Printing, Preview, and Page Set-up (margins) -WYSIWYG - Cursor X-Y User Axis Values - Simple, Lightweight and Fast - Can be Used with Boa Applications if Desired - Lots of Comments and Doc Strings along with Example Usage
I have tested this out on Windows using Python 2.2 and wxPython 184.108.40.206. If you have the chance to test it on Linux, please let me know how it works. Suggestions and improvements welcome.
