Thanks @juliohm, based on my understanding aspect controls the ratio between the x and y axis, but I’m looking for range breaks in the x-axis. So I’m not sure how to achieve that with aspect

I’ve looked at the plotly example, and the breaks are not done by concatenating axes it seems, rather it appears to be a scale transform? So I tried the same, I define a scale function that maps 9-17 to 0-1, then the next day is 1-2, etc. It completely swallows the intervals in between so there must not be any data there.

x = reduce(vcat, [range(9, 17, length = 30) .+ i * 24 for i in 0:5])
y = cumsum(randn(length(x)))
color = repeat(1:6, inner = 30)
f = Figure()
xticks = reduce(vcat, [(10:2:16) .+ i * 24 for i in 0:5])
xticklabelrotation = pi/4
scatter(f[1, 1], x, y; color, axis = (; xticks, xticklabelrotation))
nine_to_five_forward(x) = (mod(x, 24) - 9) / (17 - 9) + fld(x, 24)
Makie.defaultlimits(::typeof(nine_to_five_forward)) = (9, 17)
Makie.defined_interval(::typeof(nine_to_five_forward)) = -Inf..Inf
nine_to_five_backward(x) = 24 * floor(x) + mod(x, 1) * (17 - 9) + 9
Makie.inverse_transform(::typeof(nine_to_five_forward)) = nine_to_five_backward
scatter(f[2, 1], x, y; color, axis = (; xticks, xticklabelrotation,
xscale = nine_to_five_forward))
f

Thanks @Jules. This is very helpful. Can this kind of map work on DateTime types directly. Or do we work with Ints and then add tick labels (formatted DateTimes) afterwards?

Where did you find the Plotly example. I’m struggling to find the implementation

I didn’t find code, it just looked like a transform and not multiple axes.

I don’t know exactly how the datetime stuff is implemented now, probably you have to work with floats but if you know the conversion function then the logic should be doable on dates

@Jules Thanks for your example. I extended it to work with dates. Works great. Feel confident I can switch from Plotly now for my plotting needs. Which has served me well for many years but Makie is the way forward for me. Not as feature rich yet but way more performant and extensible. Great plotting package
