Hi Richard,

there is also http://plot.ly. They provide Python bindings and
allow to create HTML-based charts for offline use. Of course
this works for relatively small datasets, as all data exported
into output HTML file (with embedded JS).

Also Qt 5 provides Qt Charts library [0], maybe for C++ code
this is good choice. But I don't know if they available in Python.
