Description (last modified by )
Some cleaning there, and some doc, ... and a way for me to define a default size for Graph plots, even if I am not allowed to hardcode it in Sage because of the notebook.
Here are the new lines in my init.sage file :
import sage.graphs.graph_plot sage.graphs.graph_plot.default_show_options['figsize'] = 15
Hell Yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh !! :-P

I think the option could be termed as
SHOW_OPTIONS
to keep the terminology compatible/similar with what is there insage.plot.graphics
.
Really ? O_o
Upper case variables are so ugly...
Also, why did you decide to create another dictionary, when there is already
graphplot_options
available?
Well, because the graphplot_options
dictionary seems to associate text descriptions to keywords, while I want to associate actual values.
Btw, I will try to deal with the pictures of our Belgian evening in Singapour sooner or later :-)

Yes, they are ugly. But this acts like a global variable in the file. Also if (and that's a big if, looking at my near future) I get time, I will try to clean up some of the options in plots (#13828), so I would prefer there are less inconsistencies introduced in new patches! :)

@ncohen: First of call, thanks for this cleanup! Now, here are some comments:
- there seems to be a doctest failure according to the patchbot.
- Just a small typo here (dictionary):
+ # This dictinary only contains the options that graphplot
- Some more typos..
s/explicitely/explicitly
- About your major change - I will need to look at it more carefully. It seems strange to me that
GraphPlot
importsGraphics
fromsage.plot
and doesn't make use of thefigsize
parameter from there. I don't understand why it behaves so.

Patch updated ! As for the bug, it's yet another combinat side-effect >_<
The decorator added a dictionary of default options to all graphs, and some code in this file modifies the dictionary so that *THIS* graph will be well displayed.
Vincent : it seems to come from your patch #11422. How do you propose that we fix this ?
Nathann
comment:12 Changed 7 years ago by
Oh, and there's something else that I would like to know. Does this decorator mean that in order to define a default option for two graphs, you made all Graph objects carry an additional dictionary ?

comment:13 in reply to: ↑ 11 Changed 7 years ago by
Hi Nathann,
Vincent : it seems to come from your patch #11422. How do you propose that we fix this ?
In the method in Arithgroup.coset_graph() I create a graph and modify the option dictionnary in order that color_by_label is True by default. The reason is that I want a nice picture with
sage: G = ArithmeticSubgroup_Permutation(S2="(1,2)(3,4)",S3="(1,2,3)") sage: G.coset_graph().show()
If you provide another way to initialize the default options to plot/show, just tell me and I can do it or do it yourself. Otherwise, remove the annoying line in ArithmeticSubgroup_Permutation.
Cheers, Vincent
comment:14 Changed 7 years ago by
Well, I guess that can be easily solved this way : would the "options" decorator work if you used it with empty parameters ? Something like that :
@options() def plot ....
This way the dictionary of default arguments would be empty unless you fill it manually, and as a result the general default options from this patch would be used.
This being said, this @options decorator has to be mentionned in the documentation of every function to which it is applied. Could you write an explanation of what it does and how it is to be used ? This doc should appear in sage/misc/decorators, toward which the doc of all functions using @option should point so that users know that this feature exists, and how it is to be used.

comment:16 Changed 7 years ago by
I tested the patch. All tests passed. Documentation builds fine. The intended behavior works well for me. Although, here are some remarks below. Mainly, I believe it should be better documented in the doc string of plot and show methods. I also added some questions...
- In the documentation of
plot
method, I do not understand this:
- Default parameters for this method can also be set through the :class:`~sage.misc.decorators.options` mechanism.
Can you provide an example instead? like:
EXAMPLE: Default parameters for this method can also be set through the :class:`~sage.misc.decorators.options` mechanism:: sage: how_should_I_use_the_decoration_mechanism()
- Same comment for
show
method. I prefer to see an example in the doc which illustrates the utilisation of this default parameters.
- Add example in both
plot
andshow
like this one:
Create a graph and show it:: sage: g = graphs.PetersenGraph() sage: g.show() Change default options for all graphs:: sage: sage.graphs.graph_plot.DEFAULT_PLOT_OPTIONS['edge_color']='red' Now edges of all graphs are red:: sage: g.show() sage: g = Graph({3:[4,5]}) sage: g.show()
dictinary
still appears
The following point are just questions...
- Somebody can explain me what is the specification differences between
show
andplot
?
- Why do you remove the element from the kwds? Is there some efficiency gain?
14511 # This dictinary only contains the options that graphplot 14512 # understands. These options are removed from kwds at the same 14513 # time. 14514 plot_kwds = {k:kwds.pop(k) for k in graphplot_options if k in kwds}
- Should not
{}
be the default ? In genereal, this should be a dict. I guess None is fine.
"edge_colors" : None,
- What is this?

plot
returns an object of class Graphics
. show
actually calls matplotlib, renders the Graphics
object, and then displays the result. This separation is used when you want to combine one or more graphics on the same figure. You can do the following now
(graphs.CycleGraph(3).plot() + graphs.CycleGraph(5).plot()).show()
- Why do you remove the element from the kwds? Is there some efficiency gain?
This is fine. It is not for efficiency, but to remove the kwds which are not handled by the GraphPlot
class.
- Should not
{}
be the default ? In genereal, this should be a dict. I guess None is fine."edge_colors" : None,
I have no opinion on this. As long as it works, I am fine with either of None or {}. :)
I have been quite tied up with deadlines lately, so sorry for the delay in reviewing this. Currently, this doesn't apply to 5.6.beta0. I will see if I have an older compiled version that I can use. What I wanted to test and check was whether it is possible to set some value in SHOW_OPTIONS
from sage/plot/graphics.py
(by using the method I mentioned in comment:7) and have the same value reflected in the GraphPlot
code. The last time I had checked this, it didn't work.

For me, I think the confusion comes from the fact that using plot actually opens the png. I like it if plot returns the Graphics object without opening any png and show returning None and openning the png.
Thanks for your answers!
I will continue my review (on sage-5.6.rc0 the patch applies fine) and let you check the other SHOW_OPTIONS thing.

Actually, plot never returns the rendered graphics object. What happens when you don't assign any variable to plot like
a = plot(...) # assigning the output of plot to variable a
then the _repr_()
method of the Graphics
class is called. This is similar to the way the print
function in Sage works. The _repr_
method then implicitly calls show and your graph gets rendered and displayed.
comment:21 Changed 7 years ago by
One more point. This does not affect the result of plot:
sage: import sage.graphs.graph_plot sage: g = graphs.PetersenGraph() sage: sage.graphs.graph_plot.DEFAULT_SHOW_OPTIONS['figsize'] = 20 sage: g.plot() sage: sage.graphs.graph_plot.DEFAULT_SHOW_OPTIONS['figsize'] = 2 sage: g.plot()
One may say it is because I should use DEFAULT_PLOT_OPTIONS
instead. But it is not the case. As the following is not affected by changing DEFAULT_PLOT_OPTIONS
:
sage: import sage.graphs.graph_plot sage: g = graphs.PetersenGraph() sage: sage.graphs.graph_plot.DEFAULT_PLOT_OPTIONS['figsize'] = 2 sage: g.plot() sage: sage.graphs.graph_plot.DEFAULT_PLOT_OPTIONS['figsize'] = 20 sage: g.plot()
Hence, I believe the documentation at the start of the file graph_plot.py
should contain at least one example using DEFAULT_PLOT_OPTIONS
and one example using DEFAULT_SHOW_OPTIONS
. As a user I want to understand why there are two such dict and which one I should use.

So, I believe this is the reason of my confusion. Do we really want a string representation function like _repr_
to display a png? If I think about it, I don't like it! I prefer the string representation to tell me that the GraphicObject
is made of 345 primitive graphics objects. And then, I decide whether I show it or not...

You can do so too :) Just run show_default(False)

1/2) I fixed this doc, but only where it is related to what this ticket implements, and not related to the "@options"

D) Because I want those two methods to appear in the doc, even if they begin with a _
What this new patch does :
1) It changes the documentation of GraphPlot? so that the list of admissible keywords appear only once, and in the documentation.
2) The GraphPlot?.plot() method accepts any options, and ignores them. I remove the **kwds
in its definition, and remove the long description of its possible parameters
3) I remove two default arguments of Poset.plot() which were ignored
4) There's a dprecation warning when a wrong keyword is used
Tell me what you think of it !

comment:26 Changed 7 years ago by
Great for the second patch. I like the improvements in the documentation. However, here are some issues:
- The following used to work, but is broken by the actual patches. A deprecation warning is needed :
sage: g = graphs.PetersenGraph() sage: p = g.graphplot() sage: p.plot(my_favorite_useless_option_I_always_used_in_my_code=45) Traceback (most recent call last): ... TypeError: plot() got an unexpected keyword argument 'my_favorite_useless_option_I_have_used_in_my_code'
- (Suggestion) I don't know of another way of sending warning to the user, but in our case it is not really a deprecation warning. Because for instance
'scaling_term'
was used as an argument by some code and was not used if I understand correctly. Hence, there will be no deprecation as it was not used and will still be unused. Therefore, I suggest to improve the message like this:
from sage.misc.superseded import deprecation -deprecation(13891, (str(opt)+" is not a registered argument for"+ - "GraphPlot ! Please tell us that if it "+ - "should be by writing to sage-devel !")) +deprecation(13891, (str(opt)+" is not a registered argument for " + "GraphPlot and never was! Please tell us that if it " + "should be by writing to sage-devel ! " + "In a future version of Sage, it might raise " + "an error instead so you should fix it."))
- (Remark) BTW, the
+
are not necessary above. For instance:
sage: ('first line' ....: 'second line\n' ....: 'third line') 'first linesecond line\nthird line'
- There are some errors reported by the buildbot:

This started out as a small patch, but it became quite big already! Anyway, my original fears are all gone. Things seem to work just fine :) I have just a bunch of minor comments now (waiting for the documentation to build):
- There is a doctest error
File "/home/punarbasu/Installations/sage-5.7.beta0/devel/sage-main/sage/graphs/generic_graph.py", line 13803: sage: list(sorted(layout_options.iteritems())) Expected: [('by_component', 'Whether to do the spring layout by connected component -- a boolean.'), ('dim', 'The dimension of the layout -- 2 or 3.'), ('heights', 'A dictionary mapping heights to the list of vertices at this height.'), ('iterations', 'The number of times to execute the spring layout algorithm.'), ('layout', 'A layout algorithm -- one of "acyclic", "circular", "ranked", "graphviz", "planar", "spring", or "tree".'), ('prog', 'Which graphviz layout program to use -- one of "circo", "dot", "fdp", "neato", or "twopi".'), ('save_pos', 'Whether or not to save the computed position for the graph.'), ('spring', 'Use spring layout to finalize the current layout.'), ('tree_orientation', 'The direction of tree branches -- "up" or "down".'), ('tree_root', 'A vertex designation for drawing trees.')] Got: [('by_component', 'Whether to do the spring layout by connected component -- a boolean.'), ('dim', 'The dimension of the layout -- 2 or 3.'), ('heights', 'A dictionary mapping heights to the list of vertices at this height.'), ('iterations', 'The number of times to execute the spring layout algorithm.'), ('layout', 'A layout algorithm -- one of : "acyclic", "circular" (plots the graph with vertices evenly distributed on a circle), "ranked", "graphviz", "planar", "spring" (traditional spring layout, using the graph\'s current positions as initial positions), or "tree" (the tree will be plotted in levels, depending on minimum distance for the root).'), ('prog', 'Which graphviz layout program to use -- one of "circo", "dot", "fdp", "neato", or "twopi".'), ('save_pos', 'Whether or not to save the computed position for the graph.'), ('spring', 'Use spring layout to finalize the current layout.'), ('tree_orientation', 'The direction of tree branches -- "up" or "down".'), ('tree_root', 'A vertex designation for drawing trees. a vertex of the tree to be used as the root for the ``layout="tree"`` option. If no root is specified, then one is chosen at random. Ignored unless ``layout=\'tree\'``')]
- I think the following should mention something like "
You may want to give it as an argument to graphplot() instead
" (i.e. theGraphPlot

Hey, I just noticed that .graphplot and .plot just do not do the same thing.
graphplot :
return GraphPlot(graph=self, options=options)
plot :
return GraphPlot(graph=self, options=options).plot()
So it does not really make sense to deprecate one by making it an alias to the other one !
The question is : do we need a graphplot method, and what for (knowing that it takes two lines to create the graphplot object from the graph) ? If we do then it stays, if we don't we remove it, or add whatever deprecation warning you may want, but we can't make it an alias of anything.

Thanks. This is a huge mess.
I understand why the plot method is needed. If you look at the code for plot(f)
(the generic plot function) then, it returns the output f.plot()
method if it is present. I think the current patch is OK. I also think slabbe is right in comment:41.

1) Fixed in trac_13891-fifth_pass.patch, sorry for that, good job noticing it as no doctest checks that :-P
2) Fixed in trac_13891-bugfix.patch
A) Noooooo idea on earth.
B) Yep. Because basically, show
calls plot
.
Well, if you like it, this "small patch that defines new default options" can go :-P
Thanks for your help !!!

About A - the reason is that figsize is a property that is handled by matplotlib. It is only the show method that actually calls matplotlib. The plot method just prepares the set of points that are going to be on the figure and that will eventually be passed on to matplotlib.

So if somebody uses show_default(True)
which is the actual default, then show
is automatically called (with no option) when plot
is called, and there is no way of changing the figsize
through the plot
method. Right? This is the kind of thing that made plot and show mysterious to me when I started using sage. Now, I am starting to understand!

- I just added a patch which adds the notes about what dict affect what function. Do you agree to fold it into yours?
- Another question (it should be my last now!!): What are the available options for
show
or forDEFAULT_SHOW_OPTIONS
?
To know available options for plot
, I may look at the keywords of the default dict. I think they are complete right?
sage: sage.graphs.graph_plot.DEFAULT_PLOT_OPTIONS.keys() ['edge_color', 'tree_orientation', 'layout', 'vertex_labels', 'max_dist', 'partition', 'loop_size', 'heights', 'color_by_label', 'dist', 'graph_border', 'iterations', 'edge_colors', 'edge_style', 'edge_labels', 'vertex_size','talk']
or at the following docstring :
sage: g.plot? # they do not corresponds exactly with the defaut dict, but it is not too bad
But, for show, it seems more difficult to know the possible options. The keywords of the default dict contain only one :
sage: sage.graphs.graph_plot.DEFAULT_SHOW_OPTIONS.keys() ['figsize']
and the docstring of show
does not say much about those options "not used by plot" :
sage: g = graphs.PetersenGraph() sage: g.show? Docstring: Shows the (di)graph. For syntax and lengthy documentation, see G.plot?. Any options not used by plot will be passed on to the Graphics.show method. Note: See the documentation of the "sage.graphs.graph_plot" module for information on default arguments of this method. EXAMPLES: sage: C = graphs.CubeGraph(8) sage: P = C.plot(vertex_labels=False, vertex_size=0, graph_border=True) sage: P.show() # long time (3s on sage.math, 2011)
Could we add a sentence in the above show docstring explaining where we can find what are the possible options for show accepted by matplotlib?

Added trac_13891-docagain.patch and trac_13891-otherfixes.patch. They're folded inside of trac_13891-all_in_one.patch.

The options for show can be obtained directly from the top level function show
. It is defined in safe.plot.graphics.show

- Status changed from needs_review to positive_review
Replying to ppurka:
@slabbe - if you have no other problems with this patch, then you can set it to positive review.
Thanks Nathann for your quick patch fixes and Punarbasu for your quick responses to my too many questions. Like you said, the patch now makes much more than the initial goal, but I think it is a good thing.

This has annoyed the hell out of me about 100 times in the last month:
g.plot(svg=True) 127 True /usr/local/sage/sage-5.10.beta3/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/sage/graphs/generic_graph.py:14263: DeprecationWarning: You provided svg as an argument to a function which has always silently ignored its inputs. This method may soon be updated so that the method raises an exception instead of this warning, which will break your code : to be on the safe side, update it ! See http://trac.sagemath.org/13891 for details. return GraphPlot(graph=self, options=options)
I strongly disagree with this deprecation. It is an extremely useful feature that the plotting functions hold their arguments, then pass the unused arguments on to show, just like the do (by design!) in 3d graphics, and did do (by design!) for many years in 2d graphics.

Your turn. Silently ignored arguments annoyed the hell out of me for a while too. I had no idea why nothing happened.

I have nothing against passing arguments from a function to another. I have something against failing silently. Now we have a list of arguments which are understood and used by show/plot, and you can use that to check that what you forward to another function will actually be used. You can also do the same everywhere else, and add these flags to the the documentation, which is far from being a rule everywhere else.

I agree we should never deprecate it as I guess so much code are using useless arguments out there. Maybe the "DeprecationWarning?" was not well chosen, just a "Warning" would have been ok without mentionning any future deprecation. So, what annoyed you in fact? The deprecation? or the warning that was printed 100 times?
On my side, I would be happy to learn that the input I am giving to a function is just totally ignored. Why? Because this is just normal Python I am used to (we can also think of a mispell argument written by dyslexicy) :
sage: def f(a,b): return a+b sage: f(4,5) 9 sage: f(4,5,color='blue') --------------------------------------------------------------------------- TypeError Traceback (most recent call last) <ipython-input-15-d3f7a3aa970a> in <module>() ----> 1 f(Integer(4),Integer(5),color='blue') TypeError: f() got an unexpected keyword argument 'color'

I agree that options should not be ignored silently - so in that sense I agree with Nathann.
On the other hand, it seems that some other plot functions silently pass on their options to the show() method. I think something similar should be done here. I have opened #14632 to track this.

I also agree that options should not be completely ignored silently. I want them to be passed on to the show command, which would then complain if the options are invalid.

Looking now, I see that I agree with what you propose there.
I think the option could be termed as
SHOW_OPTIONS
to keep the terminology compatible/similar with what is there insage.plot.graphics
.Also, why did you decide to create another dictionary, when there is already
graphplot_options
available?
