Tutorial to object-oriented API

Hello,

all tutorials I've found so far are about the stateful pylab API. Since I've never worked with Matlab and grew up with doing things in an OOP way using the pylab interface feels very unnatural for me.

Are there any tutorials to matplotlib that utilise the more pythonic API? Just something to get started and to be able to comprehend the API documentation.

Thanks,

Florian

The user's guide covers much of the API

  http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/users/index.html

thought it *starts* with a pyplot tutorial. In particular, see

  http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/users/artists.html
