# Drawing a graph

 P: n/a Hello list, I need to draw a graph, 2 axes, 2D, nothing fancy. One of the axes is time, the other one is a series of integers. I don't care much about the output format. Are there any specialized libraries for this, or should i use PIL? Thanks. -- Regards, Ghirai. Aug 13 '07 #1

 P: n/a I ended up using matplotlib (http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net). Thanks for the input everyone. -- Regards, Ghirai. Aug 13 '07 #5

For your need (nothing fancy, as you said), relying on your own work is better, and making Python/wxPython plots is not really difficult. I myself have implemented a complete stock graphing application in Python using wxPython, including candlesticks and the works. In the long run, you will be better of relying on your own effort/understanding, believe me. Good luck! Baalbek Aug 18 '07 #9
