Spent a lot of this week working on prettifying bar charts, histograms and animations for some reveal.js slides.
pug module on dj1.8 branch (upgrading to Django 1.8) provides a lot of kwarg customization for transparency that work with dark backgrounds like those in modern presentations.
It’s not on pypi yet, so you have to install manually:
pip install pandas pip install --editable=git+http://email@example.com#egg=pug --exists-action=w
There’s also a function for creating a gif animation of a pandas Panel (sequence of DataFrame tables). Each line chart is a “frame” of the animation.
