Hi, I’m new here (and to the Julia programming language in general), and hopefully this is the right category. Anyway, I’m attempting to make a GUI to facilitate some visualisation that I’m doing. What I want is to click a button in my Gtk GUI and have a separate visualisation window open. In the example I’m providing, the
plotly backend does not work, but I have tested this example with other backends (such as
pyplot, which I also use sometimes as each backend has its own strengths and weaknesses).
Just to make sure this isn’t an OS issue, I have tested this on both Linux and OS X and both of them have the same issue. I’m thinking this issue is caused because
plot cannot be run in a thread.
using Gtk, Plots plotly() b = GtkButton("open plot") signal_connect(b, "clicked") do w plot(1:5) end wi = GtkWindow(b, "Plots.jl failure demonstration") showall(wi)
I’m thinking that I can use multiprocessing or a subprocess somehow to display my visualisations, but I find that solution to be quite a bit unwieldy and I’d like to avoid it if I can. Is there a better way to do what I want?
Also, I explicitly do not want to embed these graphs in Gtk for now, so that would not be a solution.
