To run the examples in example.ipynb, install the required packages using pip install -r requirements_notebook.txt in a Python virtual environment of your choice.

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
from qbstyles import mpl_style

def plot(dark):
    fig, axes = plt.subplots(2, 2, figsize=(15, 10))

    # the following functions are defined in example.ipynb 
    line_plot(axes[0, 0])
    scatter_plot(axes[0, 1])
    distribution_plot(axes[1, 0])
    ax = plt.subplot(2, 2, 4, projection='polar')





How do I create my own styles?

Have a look at the files qb-common.mplstyle, qb-dark.mplstyle and qb-light.mplstyle. They contain many elements that you may want to customise.

To do so, create a file similar to the above files at the root of your project, and apply it after the qbstyle as follows:

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
from qbstyles import mpl_style
