GR is a plotting package for the creation of two- and three-dimensional graphics in Julia, offering basic MATLAB-like plotting functions to visualize static or dynamic data with minimal overhead. In addition, GR can be used as a backend for Plots, a popular visualization interface and toolset for Julia. Using quick practical examples, this talk is going to present the special features and capabilities provided by the GR framework for high-performance graphics, in particular when being used in interactive notebooks (Jupyter), development environments (Atom), desktop applications (nteract) or terminal programs (iTerm2). The presentation also introduces how to embed GR in interactive GUI applications based on QML.jl, a new plotting interface to Qt5 QML. Moreover, some experimental features and elements will be introduced, i.a. a meta layer providing an interactive interface to new backends based on Qt5 or JavaScript.
