Matplotlib gallery

I've seen the discussion around the re-organization of the matplotlib gallery.
If that might help, here is a link to a small gallery I made.

The overall organization is simply based on subdirectories so maybe it could be a (temporary) solution for the matplotlib gallery (just matter of moving examples in the right subdirectory).

Nicolas,

Thank you for sharing. Currently, our examples are organized by subdirectories. In fact, the Gallary has the exact same examples as the Examples page (except for animations). Perhaps the most simple solution for the gallary page is to just break it up into the subsections by directory?

Cheers!

THANKS, Nicolas.

This is a nice initiative, but I believe that in the context of a presentation of some software, this is not the way I would have chosen. Why people look-up /such/ galleries? Why I do it myself? What are the needs of my students (about 20 - 30 guys who work with matplotlib week after wek)?

Often because I want to find a concrete program, which answers a concrete question : how to implement timed animations. How to make multiple plots. How to insert a figure in a GUI with widgets, how to distort an image matrix, etc. etc. So a gallery should contains infos about what the hell the example XYZ is about, what does it show, where is the *concrete* documentation page with the description of the tools used, etc.

The order of examples should be rational, and as ALWAYS some cross-links would be useful.
Program-sources without comments are not so useful...

But I believe that this is just a start, and I am aware that to criticize is easier than to do something. (Je suis un grognon né, Nicolas, désolé...). So please, continue, my heart is with you!

I agree, but the current matplotlib gallery is rather clueless about what the examples are related to until you click an image. I'm personally using the gallery by looking at an example that match what I've in mind most closely and then look at the code. But you're right, some structure(s) would definitely help.

Here is an example of a well structured gallery: http://www.gigawiz.com/aagraphs.html.

The first-level structure is organized at:

Specialized Scientific Graphing
Scatter Graphs
Contour Charts (2-D, 3-D, and Ternary)
Heatmaps
Voronoi Diagram
Waterfall Charts
Bubble Charts
Spider Charts
Polar Charts
Column and Bar Charts
Area Charts
Line Charts
Combination Charts (Column-Line, Bar-Line, Area-Line)
Diagrams of Multiple, Independent Value-Axes Column, Bar or Area Graphs
High-Low, (Open)-High-Low-Close, and Range Charts
Pie Charts and X-Y Scatter Pie
Vector Charts
Statistical Charts

Maybe we can find/agree on similar structure(s)/sub-structure(s) and adapt it to the current gallery ?
