Exploding Bar-Chart for Python’s `matplotlib`

README.md for my new GitHub Repository

Exploded Bar

matplotlib rocks, but there’s no ability to do an “exploded bar chart”. This file provides the basic nuts and bolts and is well commented so you can figure out how to make one that suits your needs. No it’s not pretty. Neither are you.

Run the Example

Do something like:

$ git clone git@github.com:benjaminmgross/exploded-bar.git
$ cd exploded bar
$ ipython

No I didn’t make it a package, it’s like 20 lines long… geez.
