Python Question

Are all functionalities of ggplot2 available in Python?

the title is actually my question. I googled quite a bit, checked Quora and searched through Stackoverflow. Since I couldn't find an answer to my question I think the question is warranted.

So basically my question is twofold:

1) are all the ggplot2 functionalities available in python (especially jupyter notebook)?

2) If yes, can the R tutorials applied directly?

Kind regards
Fabian

Answer

According to my knowledge, the answer is no. In Jupyter Notebook, however, you can interface with R. In brief, do your calculations in Python and then plot using R in the same notebook. For details, check out this notebook.

However, if you are going to use python, you might as well learn matplotlib - the canonical python library for graphing. In my opinion, it's a bit more flexible and it is quite similar to Matplot's plotting functionalities.
