Plotting in batch mode using Altair Compose

Plotting in batch mode using Altair Compose v2023

With the new release of Altair Compose v2023 it is possible to plot figures in batch mode. 

Running in batch mode avoids users opening the software interface, (as a script is passed as an argument to the interpreters) and several times it saves a lot of time on data analysis.

This capability requires to run Compose in Console Mode, and some arguments are mandatory in the ‘.bat’ file that will be executed, such as:

<install dir>\Compose_Console.bat -withgui -f file.oml -continue  

Note that ‘-continue’ argument is used to keep showing the plot as the ‘.bat’ is executed and finished.
