# MatPlotLib Pt.1

just wanted to try out something artistic in matplotlib. some more play time with numpy is always nice. here we go…

### perlin noise with matplotlib color arrays

### some voronoi_points in a numpy array

### a bar chart on a polar axis.

I stole the code from some example, but I never thought about wrapping a bar chart x-axis around a point like that. Interesting result…

### using fonts on a plot

## Motivations

## Plotly vs Matplotlib

plotly has a js lib for interactive diagrams. not sure if matplotlib has something similar, but I haven’t seen it.

## Pandas with mpl or cufflinks or plotly?

cufflinks might not be really needed anymore. pandas supports multiple graphing backends like mpl or with plotly which now supports
