unclutter the axis

hi,

is there a way to put a label every two o three ticks,
instead of putting it on every tick?

the following works but it's a little cumbersome:

ax.set_yticklabels([pos % 2 != 0 and '%.2f' % num or ''
    for pos, num in enumerate(ax.get_yticks())])

cheers,

Ernest

I personally think it is best to use major ticks with labels and minor
ticks w/o labels.

the following works but it's a little cumbersome:

ax.set_yticklabels([pos % 2 != 0 and '%.2f' % num or ''
for pos, num in enumerate(ax.get_yticks())])

If you need more than that, consider using a custom tick formatter.
