    I’m glad gnuplot is still being developed. I’ve experimented with so many different libraries in different languages and I still tend to fall back on gnuplot when I can. Having it be language-independent is a huge benefit, although the configuration can be a huge pain. If the spider plot had been added just a few years ago I could have avoided using R!

    The only plotting library that I have wanted to learn more is the Plotlyjs one, simply because gnuplot can’t have dynamic plots embedded on a website. I’m curious if anyone has experience with both and how they compare.

      take a look at the canvas demos: http://gnuplot.sourceforge.net/demo_canvas_5.2/

        Well look at that! Impressive size as well. I’m seeing gnuplot_common.js as about 5KB (with the _mouse and _dashlines support total to ~27KB, although canvas_math.js is 33KB). Compared to plotly which seems to be 3.26MB this is significantly smaller.

        Thanks for pointing me in that direction!
