MPLD3: Bringing Matplotlib to the Browser

From the webpage:

The mpld3 project brings together Matplotlib, the popular Python-based graphing library, and D3js, the popular Javascript library for creating data-driven web pages. The result is a simple API for exporting your matplotlib graphics to HTML code which can be used within the browser, within standard web pages, blogs, or tools such as the IPython notebook.

See the Example Gallery or Notebook Examples for some interactive demonstrations of mpld3 in action.

For a quick overview of the package, see the Quick Start Guide.

Being a “text” person, I have to confess a fondness for the HTML tooltip plugin.

Data is the best antidote for graphs with labeled axes but no metrics and arbitrary placement of competing software packages.

Some people call that marketing. I prefer the older term, “lying.”

python-graph by Pedro Matiello.

From the webpage:

python-graph is a library for working with graphs in Python.

This software provides a suitable data structure for representing graphs and a whole set of important algorithms.


Provided features and algorithms:

  • Support for directed, undirected, weighted and non-weighted graphs
  • Support for hypergraphs
  • Canonical operations
  • XML import and export
  • DOT-Language import and export (for usage with Graphviz)
  • Random graph generation
  • Accessibility (transitive closure)
  • Breadth-first search
  • Critical path algorithm
  • Cut-vertex and cut-edge identification
  • Cycle detection
  • Depth-first search
  • Gomory-Hu cut-tree algorithm
  • Heuristic search (A* algorithm)
  • Identification of connected components
  • Maximum-flow / Minimum-cut (Edmonds-Karp algorithm)
  • Minimum spanning tree (Prim's algorithm)
  • Mutual-accessibility (strongly connected components)
  • Pagerank algorithm
  • Shortest path search (Dijkstra's algorithm)
  • Shortest path search (Bellman-Ford algorithm)
  • Topological sorting
  • Transitive edge identification

Python package to help you explore graphs and algorithms on graphs.
