I love toyplot. The emphasis on reproducibility and minimal chart junk resonate. Any plans to add plots from the statistical family such as box plots or violin plots?

Also, when I click the axes, the displayed value is wherever I clicked. This did not match my expectation which was that the displayed value would be the closest actual data point. What is the intent? I looked in the bug list and didn't find this reported (unless sandialabs/toyplot#147 is related).

@lannybroo - thanks for the kind words. In the absence of box plots or violin plots you might consider using axes.fill to display percentiles, like the example in http://toyplot.readthedocs.io/en/stable/labels-and-legends.html#canvas-legends
Agreed that the intent for interaction is to go beyond simply showing pointer coordinates - #147 is an example, along with #75, and the spatial branch, which I need to get back to.

Oh, and depending on how much data you have, take a look at https://github.com/sandialabs/toyplot/blob/master/sandbox/violin-plot-alternative.ipynb … doesn’t work in all cases of course, but there’s intellectual honesty in showing all your data.
