### Can I plot in terminal?

**plotext plots directly** on terminal, it has no dependencies and the syntax is very similar to matplotlib . It also provide a simple command line tool. Note: there are many new features from the previous version, any bug report is useful and very welcomed.

### Where can I run Matplotlib?

- Install Matplotlib with the Anaconda Prompt. Matplotlib can be installed using with the Anaconda Prompt.

### Can I use Matplotlib without Numpy?

Since numpy is a dependency of matplotlib, **you cannot plot anything with matplotlib without** using numpy. You can only plot something when you replace a, b, delta with some real numbers.

### Is matplotlib included in python?

### Is gnuplot better than matplotlib?

Matplotlib = ease of use, **Gnuplot** = (slightly better) performance. ... Here is my conclusion: if you have a not-so-big data set, you should use Matplotlib. It's easier and looks better. However, if you really need performance, you could use Gnuplot.

### How do I open gnuplot files on Mac?

### Why won Matplotlib won't show plot?

The cause of the problem is that **when you pip install matplotlib , it fails to find any backends** (even if they are installed on your machine), so it uses the "agg" backend, which does not make any plots, just writes files. To confirm that this is the case, go: python -c "import matplotlib; print matplotlib.

### What is the use of %Matplotlib inline?

%matplotlib inline sets the backend of matplotlib to the 'inline' backend: With this backend, the output of **plotting commands** is displayed inline within frontends like the Jupyter notebook, directly below the code cell that produced it. The resulting plots will then also be stored in the notebook document.

### Is there a way to run Matplotlib on a Mac?

- Just set your backend : TkAgg and interactive : True
**in**your matplotlibrc file (see Customizing**Matplotlib**with style sheets and rcParams) and fire up python. Then: should work out of the box. This is also likely to work with recent versions of the qt4agg and gtk3agg backends, and with the macosx backend on the Macintosh.

### Can you use Matplotlib in a python IDE?

- Ipython has sorted all this out for the primary
**matplotlib**backends. There may be other shells and IDEs that also work with**matplotlib in**interactive mode, but one obvious candidate does not: the python IDLE IDE is a Tkinter gui app that does not support pylab interactive mode, regardless of backend.

### Can you use Matplotlib in a GUI shell?

- Gui shells are at best problematic, because they have to run a mainloop, but interactive plotting also involves a mainloop. Ipython has sorted all this out for the primary
**matplotlib**backends.

### Is the syntax of Matplotlib similar to MATLAB?

**Matplotlib**was originally written as a Python alternative for MATLAB users, and much of its syntax reflects that fact. The MATLAB-style tools are contained**in**the pyplot ( plt) interface. For example, the following code will probably look quite familiar to MATLAB users:
