I'm just starting with matplotlib and scipy on a Mac. I was able to get some plots to work under X (using the gtk+ renderer), but I wanted to avoid that and use CocoaAgg (that's the best option for mac, right?)
When using the default renderer, it looks like the window (under X11) was in a separate thread and new plots showed up until I cleared.
However, when I use CocoaAgg (and ipython), plot brings up a blank metal-looking window, and then the plot I wanted, but ipython blocks until I close it.
Is this expected?
I downloaded everything from darwinports, and dropped in the .nibs which seemed to be in wrong -- they're XML and it doesn't complain.
What I do:
$ ipython -pylab

Any help appreciated.
