Gnuplot for Mac is a portable command-line driven graphing utility for macOS and many other platforms. The source code is copyrighted but freely distributed (i.e., you don't have to pay for it). It was originally created to allow scientists and students to visualize mathematical functions and data interactively, but has grown to support many non-interactive uses such as web scripting. It is also used as a plotting engine by third-party applications like Octave. It has been supported and under active development since 1986. Gnuplot supports many different types of 2D and 3D plots!

It supports many different types of output

Interactive screen display:
cross-platform (Qt, wxWidgets, x11) or system-specific (MS Windows, OS/2)

Direct output to file:
postscript (including eps), pdf, png, gif, jpeg, LaTeX, metafont, emf, svg...

Mouseable web display formats:
HTML5, svg
