- matplotlib.pyplot.xkcd(scale=1, length=100, randomness=2)[source]#
Turn on xkcd sketch-style drawing mode. This will only have effect on things drawn after this function is called.
For best results, the "Humor Sans" font should be installed: it is not included with Matplotlib.
- scalefloat, optional
The amplitude of the wiggle perpendicular to the source line.
- lengthfloat, optional
The length of the wiggle along the line.
- randomnessfloat, optional
The scale factor by which the length is shrunken or expanded.
This function works by a number of rcParams, so it will probably override others you have set before.
If you want the effects of this function to be temporary, it can be used as a context manager, for example:
with plt.xkcd(): # This figure will be in XKCD-style fig1 = plt.figure() # ... # This figure will be in regular style fig2 = plt.figure()
