hi, i just want to hear your opinion on this. If i have eg, a large matrix i normally visualize using matplotlib's imshow, I can zoom and pan around in the image very smoothly. Will I be able to this with ipython notebook as well?
I'm not sure what you mean by how does it scale if you're concerned about the performance of the webagg backend that will probably depend on your system and the size of the data you're plotting. The only way to answer that would be to give it a go and see if it's acceptable for your particular usecases.
IIUC it works by sending updated images which may not be particularly performant in which case you may want to check out bokeh which I think is aiming to be a performant interactive plotting solution for large data
