Trellis-style plots

Hi,

I'm a new user of matplotlib, and I'm trying to learn how to do some of the things I'm accustomed to doing in the R environment with matplotlib and numarray. I find R's Lattice implentation of Trellis graphics very useful in my industrial data analysis work.

For those unfamiliar with Trellis, here's the user manual:
http://www.stat.purdue.edu/~wsc/papers/trellis.user.pdf

Does anyone have any experience with making conditioned plots or scatterplot matrices with matplotlib? I'd like to try them out with matplotlib and would appreciate seeing any code that's already out there.

Thanks to the matplotlib developers for what looks like a great tool!

Best regards,
John

Hi John,

Any reason why you need to use matplotlib to do this? In my view of
things it would be easier to use R itself with the RSPython package:
http://www.omegahat.org/RSPython/index.html.

This way you can get whatever you want done in python and then just
plot the results in R. This is vastly preferable as there is no
formula expressions in Python as there are in R, and that is 95% of
Trellis's power. I guess you could cook up the formula capability
yourself, but why bother?

If you could explain a little more on what you want to do, I could
probably give the best course of action.
