Nupic_output updated file

question

#1

Hi everyone; I am using nupic with python on my custom anomaly detection, Now I am facing issue with using nupic_output.py file ploting and file writting…
I used nupic_output.py from oneHotGym example as well as sine_prediction example…
Thanx in advance for your help…


#2

what kind of issue is ?


#3

That file for the example depends on matplotlib being installed properly on your computer. Sometimes you need to figure what to do in your environment to properly install / run matplotlib.


#4

Thanx @rhyolight
I would like to ask more specific…
so would you like to spacify the matplotlib version with a generic nupic_output.py file… That works for all sort of examples to wheather write to a file or plot… and mention a link to nupic_output.py
Thanx @rhyolight for your time…

Thnx @way-sal the error is something like this… while it is working with writing to a file

I’m using matplotlib 2.1.0. Sorry I can’t help you out more. If you can’t get matplotlib working, you can use the write to file option and plot the results in another way manually.

Thnx @rhyolight alot for your time.

Hey, I recommend running it outside your python virtual environment and see if it makes any difference. Are you running on OSX?
