Data-viz utils

Useful functions for easily making publication-quality figures with matplotlib.

Can be installed using pip install dvu and then imported with import dvu.

You can also just copy the relatively short source code for the functions (easily viewable here).

Helps create a bunch of different plots such as these:


One particularly useful function is dvu.line_legend() which replaces a typical matplotlib legend with labels for each line:

Using plt.legend() Using dvu.line_legend()
plot_labeled_lines_orig plot_labeled_lines--1-

Another one is dvu.invert_plot() which can be called after generating a plot to invert everything besides the line colors
