Pycharm 4 new release claims support for matplotlib.
How do you setup and Pycharm to use matplotlib and what settings are needed in matplotlib?
This is not "automagic". In every environment, matplotlib is hyper sensitive to the "backend" which is chosen and to whether automatic refresh/display is chosen and to whether inline is used. I sort of forget how to do the latter.
I am on Mac OS X so the only rational backend to use is macosx. Not qt, tk, or any of the other backends.
