I’m trying to use Plots.jl with GR backend to generate a scatter plot with a large number of points. However, 10,000 points fails to generate a plot in the Plots window and Juno generally crashes soon after.
Am I doing something wrong, or is the library unable to handle large numbers of points?
The GR backend should be completely capable of handling very large numbers of data points (have you seen this issue @jheinen?). The InspectDR backend is also focused on doing exactly that. 10,000 scatter points is nothing, though.
Makie is not a backend to Plots. It is very good at handling large numbers of data though (https://hackernoon.com/drawing-2-7-billion-points-in-10s-ecc8c85ca8fa ).
@BioTurboNick could you try in the REPL to see if this is a juno interaction issue?
Oh I think the environment variable might be deprecated.
It’s a bug, so try to report it on Plots.jl as an issue and ping pfitzseb (the Juno maintainer). Thanks. (BTW you get package versions with ]st)
