You may want to try moving the "<defs>" containing the clipPath up a
level, so it is a peer with the histogram rectangles.
Yep, that works.
That's just a stab in
the dark. If that turns out that makes the difference, that should be an
easy enough fix within matplotlib.
That would be great !
I have a fix on this branch here:
Would you mind testing it?
Works like a charm !
I'd be glad to contribute an example for the matplotlib gallery if
there is an interest. I think the SVG+JS combo has a lot of potential,
and matplotlib makes it easy.
That would make a great addition. One small comment: I would put the
"onclick" handler on the legend handles as well as the legend text. I
tried to click the legend handles (with nothing happening) until I
realized the "hotspot" was only on the text.
For a long time, I have considered having a framework where arbitrary
XML attributes can be assigned to artists and written out directly by
the SVG writer to avoid the two-pass approach you're using here. (There
is already support for assigning hyperlinks to SVG documents, but that
could be made more general).
I thought about this too. There is already a set_gid method, so I
guess generalizing this to any (attribute, value) pair should not be
too hard. On the other hand, what would also help is more hierarchy
within the svg tree. At the moment, a group is created for figure,
axes, axis, legend and collections (from a quick overview, maybe there
are others.) However, since histogram returns flat patches instead of
a collection of patches, we need to loop through all bar patches to
set their properties. If histogram returned one patchcollection per
variable, we could address this group directly instead of the
But that will require some careful design
consideration etc. to get it done. In the meantime, it's useful having
an example that shows how to do this using ElementTree to modify the SVG
after matplotlib outputs it.
Good, I'll work on this then.
