Dark background style sheetΒΆ

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.

'dark_background' style sheet
import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt


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")
