VisPy is quite an interesting tool. They say it is for “scientific visualization”. Here is an example of that. I took a demo from their github page and added a little code to generate a sinewave. The cool thing is that the graph, scaling, panning, zooming, and redrawing all come out of the box.
I previously wrote about installing VisPy. Thanks to the great efforts of some unnamed people, Python on Windows is really working nicely now.
Here is a screenshot:
Here is the code:
VisPy is a Python library for interactive scientific visualization that is designed to be fast, scalable, and easy to use.
Here is how I installed it:
First I installed the latest Python 3.6 on Windows 10 by following the directions on http://www.python.org. Once this was installed, I opened up Windows PowerShell and ran this command:
py -m pip upgrade vispy PyQt5 --user
I found some sample code here, and using NotePad++, copied and pasted it, saving it to Desktop\Code\v1.py
In PowerShell, I changed to the directory that I saved the python code to and ran it:
Here is the output:
It’s a pretty smooth and clean looking UI. It seems extremely powerful, but I’ll need to dig in and see what makes it tick…
