ggplot for python calling kivy matplotlib backend

Based on the grammar of graphics, ggplot is a library for plotting graphs in R. By doing some readings seems like ggplot is a very good choice to produce multi-layered graphs. I found a package for python which provides a ggplot structure wrapped into matplotlib instructions. I gave it a try by installing it from source and then, since the library is heavily depending on matplotlib I changed the backend by default to use kivy by placing these two lines on top of each example tested:

import matplotlib

The main advantage in my case is the minimum set of instructions required for creating plots. Some resources can be found here I have not fully tested it but I am giving it a try. ggplot
