Integrating Matplotlib with napari
napari is designed for high-performance qualitative data exploration, but there is often a need to map to subsequent quantitative data analysis. Matplotlib is a widely used Python package that produces quantitative visualizations. Matplotlib and napari are linked by the napari-matplotlib plugin, which contains widgets for visualizing napari layers in Matplotlib figures.
This project will transform the napari-matplotlib plugin from a working prototype to a stable package by setting up infrastructure and tooling to facilitate contributions from the wider community. This work includes creating comprehensive documentation and tests, as well as embedding best accessibility practices.
