HTML Link in Text

Hello All,

Is there a way to add HTML links into output graphics?
In short, I would like to use something like the PLT.text command and have it
link to an html page. The url arg doesn’t seem to be what I am looking
for.

My final output medium is PDF… so I am using:

from matplotlib.backends.backend_pdf import PdfPages as PDF

import matplotlib.pyplot as PLT

pdfOutput = PDF(fileName)

PLT.text(“Some Text to Link”, url = “http:…”)

PLT.savefig(pdfOutput, format=‘pdf’)

PLT.clf()

Thanks so much for any advise!

Looks like the url string is only used for SVG files. If you could, please file a feature request to have it added to the pdf backend:
