MatPlotLib Pt.1

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

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

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