Python Package


The latest stable release can be installed from PyPi:

pip install md_plot

The source code is hosted on GitHub at:


Windows users of Anaconda distribution should update numpy, scipy and matplotlib via conda instead of pip.

Basic Usage

from md_plot import MDplot, load_examples

dctExamples = load_examples()



Future Improvements

In addition to bug fixing, these improvements to the md_plot pack-age are planned:

  • Close the performance gap to the R version
  • Reimplementation of dip-test based on diptest R package (uni-dip is using Monte Carlo simulations to compute the p-values, but this is not the default behavior of the diptest in R)
