Matplotlib, scipy?

Hi,

I noticed the recent call to update the new SciPy website on the
numpy-discuss list:

http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/forum.php?thread_id=9585553&forum_id=4890

On the documentation page:

http://new.scipy.org/Wiki/Documentation

there is:

http://new.scipy.org/Wiki/Plotting_Tutorial

which has no content at the moment. You are otherwise pointed to the
old page which lists plt, gplt etc scipy libraries. I wondered what
the current thinking was on SciPy and plotting. Is it time to suggest
that SciPy users go straight to matplotlib?

Just a thought,

Matthew

That is pretty much what is suggested on the scipy mailling list.

OK, I put up a bare-bones page there now. Feel free to extend it.

The 3(!) old scipy plotting libraries have all been removed mainline
scipy. Matplotlib happily made this the obvious choice. The old packages
are in the scipy sandbox now, for anyone needing them.

Can you please list where these old references are? Perhaps you could
start a page on the wiki to collect things that need to be updated
there. We need to go through and update examples to matplotlib.

Yes! :slight_smile:
