matplotlib2tikz

Hi everyone,

I recently uploaded matplotlib2tikz to PyPi [1] and would love some
feedback.

Cheers,
Nico

Thanks! Seems interesting.

But I've never understood the advantages of using tikz rather than just
including a pdf into the latex (or lyx).

I've never used tikz or pgf directly myself. But they can do some pretty
neat things:

Using a TiKz code instead of a PDF allows to have consistent formatings
easily. For example, if I change the font of my Latex document containing a
TiKz plot I do not have to edit this plot, almost everytime. In the case of
a PDF, I will have to edit my document if I want my font to be the same.
You can imagine other LaTeX features.

But having a lot of TiKz pictures can't slow down dramatically the
compilation of a LaTeX document.
