I am working on a custom toolbar with annotation tools (such as arrows, text etc.) which would be a replacement or addition to the standard navigation toolbar usually available at the bottom of the figure window.
So far in order to add the toolbar I use the example embedding_in_gtk2.py. Unfortunately this works only with gtk backends. Is there a way to add the toolbar to the window in a backend-independent way? For example, the following syntax would be very convenient:
fig = figure()
tbar = NavigationToolbar()
With such an API one could define on the runtime which toolbar should be avialable. Adding multiple toolbar would be also possible.
