Matplotlib-users Digest, Vol 96, Issue 1

Dear all,

Is there any good reason to move to the "native" mpl api and drop pyplot?

I notice I don't even understand this question, but I'd like to. From
http://matplotlib.org/faq/usage_faq.html#matplotlib-pylab-and-pyplot-how-are-they-related,
I see the difference between *pylab* and the pyplot module. But what
would be "the" native mpl api? How would you create a figure as in
"fig = plt.figure()", but without pyplot? If this is explained
anywhere in the docs, I haven't come across it.

Best,

Björn
