matplotlib.pyplot.switch_backend

matplotlib.pyplot.switch_backend(newbackend)[source]

Close all open figures and set the Matplotlib backend.

The argument is case-insensitive. Switching to an interactive backend is possible only if no event loop for another interactive backend has started. Switching to and from non-interactive backends is always possible.

Parameters:
newbackend : str

The name of the backend to use.
