this is a rather loosely related question, but would anyone happen to have the link to that one tutorial for "beautiful" histograms with TikZ? IIRC it was about how to draw a good-looking histogram with TikZ.

Sites I've tried so far:

... and lots of various combinations of relevant terms in google. However, I haven't been successful.

From what I remember, the final histogram did not have a grid and at the y-values 0.5, 1.0, ... there were little white spaces in the bars. Hope that makes sense.

  • @Jake: My suggestion here (and it might be really localized...) is to replicate your blog post here as an answer. – Werner Jun 10 '13 at 19:34
