Basically I’m working in Jupyter notebook and occasionally I want to pop out a plot into its own window to make it interactive (otherwise inline by default is OK). Is this possible?
You can toggle this behaviour inside jupyter before plotting:
You’ve also got to have the current jupyter kernel running on your local machine for this to work.
Ah nice, thanks!
Is there something similar for when using Plots + pyplot() ?
It may also work to just use
PyPlot.pygui() if you’re using the pyplot backend?
Thanks @Chris_Foster, but I already tried it and I get the following message:
PyPlot.pygui(true) ArgumentError: invalid gui none Stacktrace:  pygui(::Symbol) at /home/davide/.julia/packages/PyCall/ttONZ/src/gui.jl:59  pygui_start(::Symbol, ::Float64) at /home/davide/.julia/packages/PyCall/ttONZ/src/gui.jl:222 (repeats 2 times)  pygui(::Bool) at /home/davide/.julia/packages/PyPlot/4wzW1/src/init.jl:224  top-level scope at In:1
Looks like we’ve tried the obvious things then (I also tried calling
pygui before loading
Plots). It may be a source-reading exercise to figure out if there’s a way to do this.
The two libraries do trigger the actual plotting quite differently;
Plots is more functional in nature (plots being show by
displaying the value of the cell) and PyPlot quite imperative.
I am experiencing the same problem. Have you solved it?
No, but never tried any more.
