• However, there is no good reason to abandon Madagascar’s use of SCons for managing data analysis workflows even when working in a Python framework. Because SConstruct scripts are written in Python, they are easy to adapt for including Python functions in place of command-line instructions. See an example of using Keras with SCons or an example of using PyTorch with SCons.
• Plotting with Matplotlib may offer some advanced functionality in comparison with Vplot, such as the possibility of using $\LaTeX$ code in figure labels. It is now possible to use Matplotlib plots in papers reproducible with Madagascar through an application of sfmatplotlib. The figures will be saved in the PDF format and included in reproducible papers in the usual way. See an example.
