MatPlotLib for Mobile OS

Hi,

     It is my first post to matplotlib-dev. I am a theoretical physicist interested a lot in Python/IPython/SymPy/NumPy/MatPlotLib/etc. Both for desktop OS and mobile OS.

     About mobile OS (for smartphones/tablets), MatPlotLib is packaged and works well in :

- MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan OS on Nokia N9/N950, released in 2011, with Nokia N9 selling since September/October. MatPlotLib 1.0.0 was released yesterday by me (as a maintainer) :
http://forum.meego.com/showthread.php?t=5231
http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?p=1128672

- Maemo 5 (Fremantle) OS on Nokia N900, released in 11/2009 and currently difficult to buy brand new. Install using "# apt-get install python-matplotlib" :
http://maemo.org/packages/view/python-matplotlib/

NumPy, SymPy and IPython are also available for both OS. I have searched and found that there is no MatPlotLib for Android OS, iOS and Symbian.

     So it seems that the only smartphone selling today with MatPlotLib support is Nokia N9 (MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan OS). The repositories for Nokia N9 :
http://harmattan-dev.nokia.com/unstable/beta3/Fremantle_Update7_vs_Harmattan_Beta3_content_comparison.html

show about 170 Python packages.
     MeeGo Harmattan is also a developer's paradise, with more than 10 programming languages available now (via "apt-get install" or already installed) : gcc/g++ (3.4, 4.2, 4.4), gfortran 4.4, gpc (GNU Pascal 2.2), Lua 5.1, Perl 5.8, Prolog, Python 2.5/2.6/3.1, Ruby 1.8, TCL 8.4/8.5, Vala 0.12, etc. Also Qt/C++, Qt/Qt Quick, Qt/Python (PySide).

         Best regards from Brazil,

Hi,

    Updating the post below, about MatPlotLib on Mobile OS.

MatPlotLib 1.2.0 was released (in 09/02/2013) for MeeGo Harmattan OS

(for Nokia N9/N950). Including Qt4/PySide backend. See the Talk
Maemo.org topic :
http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?p=1128672

    Also for MeeGo Harmattan OS :
- NumPy 1.7.0 was released today (11/02/2013), just 1 day after the

mainstream release :
http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?p=1322503

···
  • IPython 0.13.1, including
    Notebook and Qt console interfaces, was released in 22/01/2013.
    See the Talk Maemo.org topic :

        See also my blog article comparing scientific Python tools for
    

computers, tablets and smartphones :
The conclusion is very simple : real mobile Linux (with glibc,
X11, dependencies, etc) are better for scientific Python. Like
Maemo 5 OS and MeeGo Harmattan OS. And future Sailfish OS and
Ubuntu Phone OS can follow the same path.

Great news!

I've had a soft spot for Maemo (and it's successors) since I got a N770 a few years ago. Loved the Debian package manager, gnome-ish user space, Python bindings for just about everything on the system -- it was everything a Linux geek would want in a tablet.

It's a shame that Nokia left and Android is filling in the space. But perhaps the open source community can carry the torch forward.

Yeah, Maemo 5 OS (from 2009) has about 500 Python packages,
while MeeGo Harmattan OS (from 2011) has almost 200 Python packages
:
Nokia ceased to sell Nokia N9 in many countries in 2012, but it
is still available in other countries, sometimes at low price. It is
estimated that Nokia N9 sold some million units in 2011 and 2012,
e.g., in 2011/Q4 it sold more (1.5-2 million units) than Nokia
Lumia. So there is a good MeeGo Harmattan community worldwide, and
typical real Linux mobile users keep using their devices for some
years.
So I see MeeGo Harmattan OS on Nokia N9/N950 in its best moment,
mature, with many fantastic projects (Inception, Open Mode Kernek,
MultiBoot, NITDroid/Android 4.1, Easy Debian, Harmattan SDK on
device, etc). And it will be easy to port many softwares to Sailfish
OS and Ubuntu Phone OS, due to common Qt/Qt Quick use.
