Pluggable Backends

Are matplotlib backends pluggable? That is, can package X provide an
experimental backend and tell matplotlib to use it? If so, how?

Yes, just point to your backend with the syntax:

matplotlibrc::

backend : module://mybackend where mybackend is a module in your PYTHONPATH

or in code::

  import matplotlib
  matplotlib.use('module://mybackend')
