I am trying to find the fastest plotting library. With fast, I don’t mean quick at plotting thousands of points, but fast to load. I need to make a couple histograms with a few dozen data points, nothing fancy and only for personal purposes (no publication-grade or anything).
Since I don’t need to wait a long time for calculations or anything of the sort (the data is in a text file and I simply want a script that reads it in and makes histograms) in this case I cannot use something like Plots with such a horrendous precompilation time.
My requirements are:
- Make histograms
- Save plots to disk as images
