Any plans to change the defaults in matplotlibrc

Hi,

I was wondering if there are any plans to change some of the defaults in
matplotlibrc. I have created a matplotlibrc file that I find very suitable
and wondering if its worth sharing here.

Hi Isaac,
As it happens, yes, in the upcoming 2.0 release has the sole purpose of
changing rcParam defaults, see http://matplotlib.org/style_changes.html
for more information.

Good question... I have gotten a bit out touch with the current state of
things so I defer to others. As far as I know the current plans at the
moment only include changes to the default colormap to viridis, but
others can get changed as well. feel free to post a link here, or (I
guess even better), make an issue/or PR (changing rcsetup.py) on github,
so that we can take it into consideration for 2.0.

Looking at the state of the branches on github I have gotten a bit
confused with the strategy... now we have 1.5 released and 2.0 marked as
a copy of 1.5.x bar rc changes, I would have assumed the new rc changes
would end up in master and then backported to the v2.x branch, but that
doesn't look like the case... can someone clarify that for me?

OceanWolf

The omnibus PR containing most of the style changes for 2.x is here:

https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib/pull/5774

This isn't everything -- some changes are already in 2.x and master.
Others are in separate PRs with 2.0 as a milestone.

The new changes are being made against 2.x and are forward-ported to master.

Also, to answer Isaac's original suggestion: if you have a matplotlibrc
that you think would be useful for others, feel free to submit it as a
style. Since 1.4, we've had a style infrastructure that makes it easy for
users to switch styles. While the default style has to be very carefully
designed so as to provide "reasonable behavior for the most common cases",
individual styles do not and can be more aggressively different.

Thanks for everyone's replies.

I am still perfecting my rc file but am happy to share what I have so far.

https://github.com/isaacgerg/matplotlibrc

I did a research project a few years ago on color theory and am updating my
rc file based on my findings.

Additionally, it would be really cool to have some kind of webapp whereby a
user uploads their matplotlibrc file and the server generates a set of
plots based on it. I'm happy to take a whack at it if folks want to chime
in and email me some example plots to render. I would keep it to simple
plots to start.

I am aware of the plotornot "experiment" and also have rolled some of those
features into my rc file as well (its very based off of Cam Davidson's)

The new defaults with 2.0 is to add a fixed amount of visual padding on all
sides. The amount of padding can be controlled with axes.xmargin and
axes.ymargin.

Prior to 2.0, the default behavior was to move to ?round numbers?, which is
a lot less predictable.

In either case, the algorithm used to autoscale can be replaced by
replacing the locator. See the ticker docs.

Good question... I have gotten a bit out touch with the current state

can get changed as well. feel free to post a link here, or (I guess even
better), make an issue/or PR (changing rcsetup.py) on github, so that we
can take it into consideration for 2.0.

Looking at the state of the branches on github I have gotten a bit
confused with the strategy... now we have 1.5 released and 2.0 marked as a
copy of 1.5.x bar rc changes, I would have assumed the new rc changes would
end up in master and then backported to the v2.x branch, but that doesn't
look like the case... can someone clarify that for me?

Hi Isaac,
As it happens, yes, in the upcoming 2.0 release has the sole purpose
of changing rcParam defaults, see

Hi,

I was wondering if there are any plans to change some of the
defaults in matplotlibrc. I have created a matplotlibrc file that I find
very suitable and wondering if its worth sharing here.

This is great. Stoked about the new updates in 2.0!

The new defaults with 2.0 is to add a fixed amount of visual padding on
all sides. The amount of padding can be controlled with axes.xmargin and
axes.ymargin.

Prior to 2.0, the default behavior was to move to ?round numbers?, which
is a lot less predictable.

In either case, the algorithm used to autoscale can be replaced by
replacing the locator. See the ticker docs.

Is there any way to change the way the autoscale function from rcparams?
For my plot(x,y)'s there is too much space on the left and right of my line
plots.

I've started work on a test script for matplotlibrc files.

Its here: https://github.com/isaacgerg/matplotlibrc

Its my plan to continue to update this along with my rc file as I go
along my day.

To add, I should also say you could just paste a URL and it downloads
the rc file and shows the plots. Matplotlib makes this easy!

Thanks for everyone's replies.

I am still perfecting my rc file but am happy to share what I have so
far.

https://github.com/isaacgerg/matplotlibrc

I did a research project a few years ago on color theory and am
updating my rc file based on my findings.

Additionally, it would be really cool to have some kind of webapp
whereby a user uploads their matplotlibrc file and the server generates a
set of plots based on it. I'm happy to take a whack at it if folks want to
chime in and email me some example plots to render. I would keep it to
simple plots to start.

I am aware of the plotornot "experiment" and also have rolled some of
those features into my rc file as well (its very based off of Cam
Davidson's)

The omnibus PR containing most of the style changes for 2.x is here:

https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib/pull/5774

This isn't everything -- some changes are already in 2.x and master.
Others are in separate PRs with 2.0 as a milestone.

The new changes are being made against 2.x and are forward-ported to
master.

Also, to answer Isaac's original suggestion: if you have a
matplotlibrc that you think would be useful for others, feel free to submit
it as a style. Since 1.4, we've had a style infrastructure that makes it
easy for users to switch styles. While the default style has to be very
carefully designed so as to provide "reasonable behavior for the most
common cases", individual styles do not and can be more aggressively
different.
