Animated plots is a package for making animated and static plots. It is built on top of SFML.jl and allows for fast plotting of functions and variables over time.
Make sure you have SFML and CSFML installed (see the SFML installation instructions for more information)
The easiest way to plot a function is to use the
julia> plot(sin) julia> close(current_window())
StaticGraph object can also be passed to
plot if you want to be able to modify the graph afterward (such as changing the color or line thickness)
julia> sin_graph = StaticGraph(sin, thickness=5, color=SFML.blue) # thickness and color julia> plot(sin_graph) julia> sin_graph.color = SFML.green julia> plot(cos) julia> close(current_window())
You can use the
AnimatedGraph to make animated plots.
julia> animated_sin = AnimatedGraph(sin) julia> plot(animated_sin) julia> animated_cos = AnimatedGraph(cos, color=SFML.blue, startx=-10) julia> animated_cos.speed = 3 # Speed in units per second julia> plot(animated_cos) julia> follow(animated_cos) # have the camera follow the plot

AnimatedPlots supports creating images and gifs of your plots. Creating gifs may take a while, only close your program after it says
Created gif file.gif. In addition, you must have imagemagick installed in order to make gifs (most package managers provide it).
julia> screenshot("my_screenshot.png") # Take a screenshot and save it to my_screenshot.png julia> make_gif(300, 300, 10, "MyGif.gif", 0.06) # Create a gif with width, height, duration (in seconds), filename, and delay (the delay between each frame in seconds)
