plotting

#1

Hello everyone!

I am happy to announce a major update to the UnicodePlots.jl code base.

Aside from finally having a proper, fully automated test-suite, the package also received a couple of new features as well as a graphical overhaul.

Changes include:

Here a couple of screenshots on macOS:


#2

This must be one of my favourite julia packages, congrats and keep up the good work :wink:


#3

Fastest plot package that ALWAYS works!


#4

Going to put it into startup.jl config file. Would be really awesome if it has a colored image or imshow type of plot available also, to plot pixels of fractals like Fatou.jl.


#5

This seems so nice! I did not know about it until now. Thanks for this!


#6

This functionality is available in a separate package (because of dependencies)


#7

Thanks, that’s useful! One other feature I noticed is missing: 2D parametric plots

Also polar plots are missing. These are just some ideas for what else can be done.


#8

One of the Julia core team members actually suggested putting this in stdlib.

I agree with him.


#9

It would be very, very nice to have a textual plotting system in stdlib! Many times I need to do some analysis in algorithms running at servers that I access through ssh. This package will be very handy!

IMHO, this package and StaticArrays.jl should be added to stdlib.


#10

Really like this package! Fast and straightforward!


#11

Awesome work! I cannot express enough the joy of making a histogram in console mode. :grinning::tada:


#12

Thanks again so much for your work on this. The availability of log scaling makes this package much more useable to me.

It’s amazing how 95% of the time the unicode plots are more than adequate. Why bother with anything else? Well, I’m not going to.
