Interacting with other Python libraries
Convert an Eelbrain
Dataset.as_dataframe(). Useful libraries: Pingouin (statistics); Seaborn (plotting).
When using R from Python through the
rpy2bridge, transfer data between R
MacOS: Framework Build
On macOS, the GUI backend that Eelbrain uses when run from the command-line interpreter requires a special build of Python called a “Framework build”. Eelbrain installs a shortcut to start IPython with a Framework build:
This automatically launches IPython with the “eelbrain” profile. A default startup script that executes
from eelbrain import * is created, and can be changed in the corresponding IPython profile.
Scrolling inside a plot axes normally uses arrow keys, but this is currently not possible on Windows (due to an issue in Matplotlib). Instead, the following keys can be used:
