Custom spine boundsΒΆ

Demo of spines using custom bounds to limit the extent of the spine.

# Fixing random state for reproducibility

x = np.linspace(0, 2*np.pi, 50)
y = np.sin(x)
y2 = y + 0.1 * np.random.normal(size=x.shape)

fig, ax = plt.subplots()
ax.plot(x, y)
ax.plot(x, y2)

# set ticks and tick labels
ax.set_xlim((0, 2*np.pi))
ax.set_xticks([0, np.pi, 2*np.pi])
ax.set_xticklabels(['0', r'$\pi$', r'2$\pi$'])
ax.set_ylim((-1.5, 1.5))
ax.set_yticks([-1, 0, 1])

# Only draw spine between the y-ticks
ax.spines['left'].set_bounds((-1, 1))
# Hide the right and top spines
# Only show ticks on the left and bottom spines
