ING styles for common plotting libraries

Project description


License Python Version PyPI version downloads

ing_theme_matplotlib is a python package with a light and a dark matplotlib and seaborn style that allows you to create your plots using ING colors and ING Me font. It was adapted from the qbstyles package.

Dark style Light style
Scatter plot Distribution plot


pip install ing_theme_matplotlib


You can use the dark Matplotlib style theme in the following way:

from ing_theme_matplotlib import mpl_style

And to use the light Matplotlib style theme, you can do the following:

from ing_theme_matplotlib import mpl_style

⚠️ Make sure to run from ing_theme_matplotlib import mpl_style and mpl_style() in different cells as shown above. See this issue.

Adding ING Logo

Assume that below is the function we use for plotting;

def line_plot(ax):
    rng = np.random.RandomState(4)
    x = np.linspace(0, 10, 500)
    y = np.cumsum(rng.randn(500, 4), 0)
    ax.set_title('Line Graph')
    ax.set_xlabel('— Time')
    ax.set_ylabel('— Random values')
    ax.plot(x, y, label = ['Bitcoin', 'Ethereum', 'Dollar', 'Oil'])
    ax.legend(['Bitcoin', 'Ethereum', 'Dollar', 'Oil'], loc = 1, fontsize = 'medium')
    ax.set_xlim([0, 10])
    ax.set_ylim([-20, 60])
    ax.spines['right'].set_position(('axes', 1.05))

You can add the default ing logo to your plot by calling add_logo function inside the plotting function.

from ing_theme_matplotlib.mpl_style import add_logo


You can also add custom logos to your plot by giving the path where the image is located.

from ing_theme_matplotlib.mpl_style import add_logo
mpl_style(dark = False)
line_plot(add_logo(bottom_left = 'ing_theme_matplotlib/logos/RPAA_Logo_RGB_Line.png'))


For more examples see ExamplePlots.ipynb.

Seaborn Usage

Similar to above, you can implement plots in Seaborn. The main difference is how the logo is added.

mpl_style(dark = False)
def bar_plot():
    logo = add_logo()
    tips = sns.load_dataset("tips")
    ax = sns.barplot(x="tip", y="day", data=tips, ax=logo.axes)


For more examples see [Example Seaborn Plots.ipynb](Example Seaborn Plots.ipynb).

Supported chart types

  • Line plots
  • Scatter plots
  • Bubble plots
  • Bar charts
  • Pie charts
  • Histograms and distribution plots
  • 3D surface plots
  • Stream plots
  • Polar plots


It is important to note that we use plt.Figure_ING() in place of plt.Figure() due to changes in Matplotlib version 3.4.1. As plt.subplots() works smoothly, it is best to stick to that methodology.
