py-matplotlib: Change default backend to MacOSX?

Component: ports Version:
Keywords: Cc:
Port: py-matplotlib


Mac OS 10.7.2 Xcode 4.2

After installing matplotlib on my mac, I was surprised to find that matplotlib example code did not result in a plot being displayed. My issue was that I had failed to notice the note regarding the default backend being set to Agg, which is "non interactive".

Ticket #17691 was a similar issue, in which the newness (3 years ago) of the MacOSX backend was cited as a reason to stick with Agg and add that notice to the install. From what I can see (as a relative newbie to macports and python), the issue in ticket 17691 regarding the missing menu bar seems to have been resolved. Might it be time to switch the default backend to MacOSX? Thanks! -Ian-

Seems about time, should be a straightforward change. I should be able to get to this in the next couple of days.
