matplotlib: Python 2D plotting library

Description

From the Matplotlib website: matplotlib is a python 2D plotting library which produces publication quality figures in a variety of hardcopy formats and interactive environments across platforms. matplotlib can be used in python scripts, the python and ipython shell (ala matlab or mathematica), web application servers, and six graphical user interface toolkits.

Dependencies

  • python

  • numpy

  • setuptools (>= 0.7)

  • freetype

  • patch (used in spkg-install)

  • dateutil

  • pyparsing

  • tornado

  • kiwisolver

Build Instructions/Changes

  • NOTE: To drastically cut down on spkg size, we delete the internal testing images. To do this, we repackage the tarball by removing the contents of lib/matplotlib/tests/baseline_images/*, this is done by the spkg-src script.

  • setup.py.patch: disable loading of Tests. Otherwise, setup.py raises an error because it can’t find the deleted files from src/lib/matplotlib/tests/baseline_images/*

  • NOTE: as of matplotlib-1.0.0 and Sage 4.6, Sage does not use $HOME/.matplotlib by default. Instead, it sets MPLCONFIGDIR to a subdirectory in $DOT_SAGE, see src/bin/sage-env
