This is a hands-on tutorial which will teach you to do plotting with Matplotlib, Python’s most popular plotting library. We will explore how to make a series of simple plots, both interactively and in scripts. We will discuss some of the more advanced features, including animations and interactive plots. This tutorial will also show you how you can customize every detail of your plots, such as the font color of the tick marks or the location of the legend.
