Watching data for changes

A new, experimental feature enables Glue to monitor the data files you’ve loaded for changes, and to auto-refresh plots when needed. This can be useful if your data update periodically, or if your data are produced by an analysis pipeline whose parameters you are iteratively refining.

To enable this feature, add the following line to your config.py script:

from glue.config import auto_refresh
auto_refresh(True)
../_images/liveupdate.gif

Note

This currently only works if file updates do not change the shape of the underlying data.
