Join Jonathan Fernandes for an in-depth discussion in this video Basic plotting, part of pandas Essential Training.
- [Teacher] Basic plotting, in this video…we will look at basic plotting.…Matplotlib tries to make easy things easy and…hard things possible,…that's what it says on the website.…You can generate plots, histograms, bar charts,…error charts with just a few lines of code.…For simple plotting, the pyplot module…provides a MATLAB-like interface.…The line "import matplotlib.pyplot"…allows you to use the matplotlib.pyplot module…using the abbreviation plt.…
One of the features of the IPython kernel…is the ability to display plots…that are the output of running code cells.…The IPython kernel works seamlessly…with the Matplotlib Plotting Library…to provide this functionality.…To set this up,…you must execute that second line,…matplotlib inline…and that's what's known as a merger command.…With the Matplotlib inline backend,…the output of the plotting commands is displayed inline,…within the Jupiter Notebook,…directly below the code cell that produced it.…The resulting plots will then also be stored…in the notebook document.…
