Why not just use an array of datetime.timedelta objects?� I believe
matplotlib already supports this, does automatic formatting and even
allows you to easily modify how the formatting is done.
I was not able to figure out how it would support them
(datetime.timedelta objects). datetime.datetime objects only as
far as I saw.
That’s right, I forgot about that. Usually, my data would have a starting point anyway, and I just use timedeltas after that point.
So I would have to create some artificial datetime + add the
timedeltas (seconds) to it and providing that to the plot I guess,
You might be able to get away with using a datetime.time object and add timedeltas. The formatting should be what you would like to see.
So far the solution to just show i.e. 70sec as 00:01:20 via some
little function is almost more sympathetic to me (so far at least).
Whatever works best for you, that’s more important. Note that matplotlib has some special treatment of date, time and datetime objects to do extra things for you. It might be a bit tricky at first, but it becomes easier to use later.
Admittedly, these following examples are for dates (and might even need to be updated…)
There are others as well.
Note that probably half that code can probably be removed for v1.0.x. When I did my graphs a few months ago, I don’t recall needing to specify any formatters. Maybe I should dig up my code and update those examples.
