[yt-users] How do I preview a plot?

Hi all,

This is a newbie-question concerning plots, so feel free to ignore it.

I'm doing something like

> ds = yt.load( fname, unit_base=unit_base, bounding_box=bbox )
> px = yt.ProjectionPlot( ds, 'y', ('gas', 'density') )
> px.save()

Which saves the plot that I want to a file.

How can preview the same plot in a window?
Basically I'm looking for a yt equivalent to `matplotlib.pyplot.show()`
instead `px.save()`, which corresponds more to a `plt.savefig()` in

I'm aware that `px.show()` would work in jupyter/ipython notebook.
Unfortunately outside it throws

> yt.utilities.exceptions.YTNotInsideNotebook: This function only works
from within an IPython Notebook
