First of all, I think Bokeh is awesome and I am really enjoying using it. I am just fiddling around right now but I have a couple of questions.
The data that I am plotting is a timeseries measured over a several days. There are several instance of measurements started on different days. In order to represent these measurements on the same plot and a common scale I have chosen to represent this timeseries as a timedelta from a relative time point in each instance. i.e. 1900 on the first day. I am using Pandas to carry out this correction.
The first question I have is: How can I use this timedelta as the x axis in a plot? Currently, I have converted the timedelta to seconds and plotted this but I get the feeling that there is a more elegant solution to this. I am using TImeSeries() to plot these data.
The second question I have is: Would it be possible to represent the day/night cycle as background colouring? I would very much like to have a visual representation of lights on/lights off. Something along the lines of different shading for each state. Currently I have translated the timedelta into a boolean column in the pandas dataframe but I have not got any further.
Since I am exploring I have been trying to emulate the High-level Charts examples but I would like to start making more bespoke charts but that is a story for another day.
Thanks very much!
