I work on a xulrunner application. Xulrunner is the future "mozilla/gecko/xul"-based application launcher (java command of the JVM).
For instance, Firefox 3 will be a xulrunner application et will not comme with all the gecko machine (like the java JVM and a java application).
I would like to use matplotlib in XUL (the bracket XML language for GUI design in the mozilla world).
The only way to show an image is with the HTML element <img src="..."/> or <img data="..."/>.
I 've read matplolib tutorial about the Agg backend. It's written GTKAgg backend use the same process.
I'd like to know weither the GTKAgg backend consist "simply" in showing an image created with the Agg backend,
and handling all events (building a rectangle for zoom et make a zoom request, Rebuilding the image when the window is resized ...) ?
If I'm correct, it would be possible to implement events for the <img/> element and update the image when it needs like GTKAgg.
Am I right about GTKAgg ?
Would it be enough fast to work interactively ?
Thanks a lot,
