This package creates clean and beautiful plots that work on light and dark backgrounds. Inspired by the work of Edward Tufte.

To use, simply select the dufte style:

import dufte
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

# global setting:

# with a context manager:
    # ...

Check out dufte.legend(), dufte.ylabel(), and dufte.show_bar_values() for more duftiness.

Comparison with default Matplotlib

See here for how to create the below plots.

Projects using dufte:



The position $x_i$ of the line annotations is computed as the solution of a non-negative least-squares problem

\frac{1}{2}\sum_i (x_i - t_i)^2 \to \min_x,\\
(x_i - x_j)^2 \ge a^2 \quad \forall i,j.

where $a$ is the minimum distance between two entries and $t_i$ is the target position.
