The top level matplotlib module

matplotlib.use(arg, warn=True, force=False)[source]

Set the matplotlib backend to one of the known backends.

To find out which backend is currently set, see matplotlib.get_backend().

Parameters:
arg : str

The backend to switch to. This can either be one of the 'standard' backend names or a string of the form module://my.module.name. This value is case-insensitive.

warn : bool, optional

If True, warn if this is called after pyplot has been imported and a backend is set up.

defaults to True

force : bool, optional

If True, attempt to switch the backend. This defaults to False.

matplotlib.get_backend()[source]

Return the name of the current backend.

matplotlib.rcParams

An instance of RcParams for handling default matplotlib values.

matplotlib.rc_context(rc=None, fname=None)[source]

Return a context manager for managing rc settings.

This allows one to do:

with mpl.rc_context(fname='screen.rc'):
    plt.plot(x, a)
    with mpl.rc_context(fname='print.rc'):
        plt.plot(x, b)
    plt.plot(x, c)

The 'a' vs 'x' and 'c' vs 'x' plots would have settings from 'screen.rc', while the 'b' vs 'x' plot would have settings from 'print.rc'.

A dictionary can also be passed to the context manager:

with mpl.rc_context(rc={'text.usetex': True}, fname='screen.rc'):
    plt.plot(x, a)

The 'rc' dictionary takes precedence over the settings loaded from 'fname'. Passing a dictionary only is also valid. For example a common usage is:

with mpl.rc_context(rc={'interactive': False}):
    fig, ax = plt.subplots()
    ax.plot(range(3), range(3))
    fig.savefig('A.png', format='png')
    plt.close(fig)
matplotlib.rc(group, **kwargs)[source]

Set the current rc params. group is the grouping for the rc, e.g., for lines.linewidth the group is lines, for axes.facecolor, the group is axes, and so on. Group may also be a list or tuple of group names, e.g., (xtick, ytick). kwargs is a dictionary attribute name/value pairs, e.g.,:

rc('lines', linewidth=2, color='r')

sets the current rc params and is equivalent to:

rcParams['lines.linewidth'] = 2
rcParams['lines.color'] = 'r'

The following aliases are available to save typing for interactive users:

Alias Property
'lw' 'linewidth'
'ls' 'linestyle'
'c' 'color'
'fc' 'facecolor'
'ec' 'edgecolor'
'mew' 'markeredgewidth'
'aa' 'antialiased'

Thus you could abbreviate the above rc command as:

rc('lines', lw=2, c='r')

Note you can use python's kwargs dictionary facility to store dictionaries of default parameters. e.g., you can customize the font rc as follows:

font = {'family' : 'monospace',
        'weight' : 'bold',
        'size'   : 'larger'}

rc('font', **font)  # pass in the font dict as kwargs

This enables you to easily switch between several configurations. Use matplotlib.style.use('default') or rcdefaults() to restore the default rc params after changes.

matplotlib.rc_file(fname)[source]

Update rc params from file.

Style-blacklisted rc params (defined in matplotlib.style.core.STYLE_BLACKLIST) are not updated.

matplotlib.rcdefaults()[source]

Restore the rc params from Matplotlib's internal default style.

Style-blacklisted rc params (defined in matplotlib.style.core.STYLE_BLACKLIST) are not updated.

See also

rc_file_defaults
Restore the rc params from the rc file originally loaded by Matplotlib.
matplotlib.style.use
Use a specific style file. Call style.use('default') to restore the default style.
matplotlib.rc_file_defaults()[source]

Restore the rc params from the original rc file loaded by Matplotlib.

Style-blacklisted rc params (defined in matplotlib.style.core.STYLE_BLACKLIST) are not updated.

class matplotlib.RcParams(*args, **kwargs)[source]

A dictionary object including validation

validating functions are defined and associated with rc parameters in matplotlib.rcsetup

find_all(pattern)[source]

Return the subset of this RcParams dictionary whose keys match, using re.search(), the given pattern.

Note

Changes to the returned dictionary are not propagated to the parent RcParams dictionary.

matplotlib.rc_params(fail_on_error=False)[source]

Return a matplotlib.RcParams instance from the default matplotlib rc file.

matplotlib.rc_params_from_file(fname, fail_on_error=False, use_default_template=True)[source]

Return matplotlib.RcParams from the contents of the given file.

Parameters:
fname : str

Name of file parsed for matplotlib settings.

fail_on_error : bool

If True, raise an error when the parser fails to convert a parameter.

use_default_template : bool

If True, initialize with default parameters before updating with those in the given file. If False, the configuration class only contains the parameters specified in the file. (Useful for updating dicts.)

matplotlib.matplotlib_fname()[source]

Get the location of the config file.

The file location is determined in the following order

  • $PWD/matplotlibrc

  • $MATPLOTLIBRC if it is a file (or a named pipe, which can be created e.g. by process substitution)

  • $MATPLOTLIBRC/matplotlibrc

  • $MPLCONFIGDIR/matplotlibrc

  • On Linux,

    • $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/matplotlib/matplotlibrc (if $XDG_CONFIG_HOME is defined)
    • or $HOME/.config/matplotlib/matplotlibrc (if $XDG_CONFIG_HOME is not defined)
  • On other platforms,

    • $HOME/.matplotlib/matplotlibrc if $HOME is defined.
  • Lastly, it looks in $MATPLOTLIBDATA/matplotlibrc for a system-defined copy.

matplotlib.interactive(b)[source]

Set interactive mode to boolean b.

If b is True, then draw after every plotting command, e.g., after xlabel

matplotlib.is_interactive()[source]

Return true if plot mode is interactive
