An advanced plotting library for Ruby.
Rubyplot aims to be the most advanced visualization solution for Rubyists.
It aims to allow you to visualize anything, anywhere with a flexible, extensible, Ruby-like API.
Install the GR framework from the website.
Then set the
GKS_FONTPATH ENV variables to point to your GR installation
and GR font path. Set the
RUBYPLOT_BACKEND ENV variable to "GR". For example:
export GRDIR="/home/sameer/Downloads/gr" export GKS_FONTPATH="/home/sameer/Downloads/gr" export RUBYPLOT_BACKEND="GR"
