Like others, I’m using Bokeh to both visualize/interact with data and to then export final plots into reports for publishing. It is required to submit the images as SVG files and not just PNG (many academic journals require this). I know this feature has been discussed, and I have been following the updates here: https://github.com/bokeh/bokeh/issues/538
I would really like to install this older branch of Bokeh from GitHub in order to make use of this feature until it’s implemented into a release, however installing it via pip either gives me errors or freezes and doesn’t make any progress for over 30 minutes. I’ve read that it should install fairly easily within a few minutes. Does anyone have experience with this? I’m using the following command to try and install this commit (on a Mac running 64-bit Python v2.7.1 through Enthought Canopy) https://github.com/bokeh/bokeh/pull/3867/commits/10671b772205a427041ba4299722301206a136eb :
pip install git+https://github.com/bokeh/[email protected]
Downloading the zip file from GitHub and trying to install it via pip also leads to the terminal freezing with no progress. Have others been able to install and use this work around? Are there other workarounds to get SVGs from Bokeh plots?
Thanks for your thoughts!
