I’m using it too, with excellent results. Thanks JJ!

Until a more permanent solution is figured out, can anyone recommend
any workarounds, even if they are a little clunky? I’m embedding mpl
plots in wxPython and am also finding this issue suboptimal.
A (partial) workaround is possible using the axes_grid1 toolkit (i.e.,
you need matplotlib 1.0).
Attached is a module I just cooked up (based on my previous attempt @
and it seems to work quite well.
The usage is simple.
ax = plt.axes([0,0,1,1]) ax.set_yticks([0.5]) ax.set_yticklabels(["very long label"]) make_axes_area_auto_adjustable(ax) # This is where axes_grid1 comes in
Then, the axes area(including ticklabels and axis label) will be
automatically adjusted to fit in the given extent ([0, 0, 1, 1] in the
While this is mainly for a single axes plot, you may use it with
multi-axes plot (but somewhat trickier to use). A few examples are
included in the module.
This thread is a few months old now, but I just wanted to mention that I am using JJ’s workaround (thanks!) in my app–with either one or two y axes–and it is just excellent.
This should definitely be at least an option for matplotlib users–the quality of the appearance of the plots now is like night and day, because, to me, seeing a plot without its axes labels (I’m talking about in a resizable plot embedded in an application, not a static graph for inclusion in a publication) is a major look and feel demerit.
