Dark background style sheet

This example demonstrates the "dark_background" style, which uses white for
elements that are typically black (text, borders, etc). Note that not all plot
elements default to colors defined by an rc parameter.

import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt'dark_background')

fig, ax = plt.subplots()

L = 6
x = np.linspace(0, L)
ncolors = len(plt.rcParams['axes.prop_cycle'])
shift = np.linspace(0, L, ncolors, endpoint=False)
for s in shift:
    ax.plot(x, np.sin(x + s), 'o-')
ax.set_title("'dark_background' style sheet")
