I use the pyplot API rarely [only for whipping up new figures and axes with plt.subplots(with cols, rows, figsize, sharex, sharey etc)] and the rest of my code uses the object oriented API. I was wondering what exactly are the differences in updating the rcParams via modifying the plt.rcParams dictionary vs the mpl.rcParams dictionary? What’s the recommended/best practice? do they always point to the same dictionary object?
(The question assumes the following convention —> “import matplotlib.pyplot as plt”, “import matplotlib as mpl”.)
