Artist tests#

Test unit support with each of the Matplotlib primitive artist types.

The axis handles unit conversions and the artists keep a pointer to their axis parent. You must initialize the artists with the axis instance if you want to use them with unit data, or else they will not know how to convert the units to scalars.

This example requires

Artists with units
import random

from basic_units import cm, inch

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import numpy as np

import matplotlib.collections as collections
import matplotlib.lines as lines
import matplotlib.patches as patches
import matplotlib.text as text

fig, ax = plt.subplots()

# Fixing random state for reproducibility

if 0:
    # test a line collection
    # Not supported at present.
    verts = []
    for i in range(10):
        # a random line segment in inches
        verts.append(zip(*inch*10*np.random.rand(2, random.randint(2, 15))))
    lc = collections.LineCollection(verts, axes=ax)

# test a plain-ol-line
line = lines.Line2D([0*cm, 1.5*cm], [0*cm, 2.5*cm],
                    lw=2, color='black', axes=ax)

if 0:
    # test a patch
    # Not supported at present.
    rect = patches.Rectangle((1*cm, 1*cm), width=5*cm, height=2*cm,
                             alpha=0.2, axes=ax)

t = text.Text(3*cm, 2.5*cm, 'text label', ha='left', va='bottom', axes=ax)

ax.set_xlim(-1*cm, 10*cm)
ax.set_ylim(-1*cm, 10*cm)
# ax.xaxis.set_units(inch)
ax.set_title("Artists with units")
