Plot curves in fivethirtyeight stylesheet in Matplotlib

To use fivethirtyeight stylesheet, we can take the following steps −

  • Set the figure size and adjust the padding between and around the subplots.
  • To use fivethirtyeight, we can use method.
  • Create x data points using numpy.
  • Create a figure and a set of subplots using subplots() method.
  • Plot three curves using plot() method.
  • Set the title of the plot.
  • To display the figure, use show() method.


import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import numpy as np

plt.rcParams["figure.figsize"] = [7.50, 3.50]
plt.rcParams["figure.autolayout"] = True'fivethirtyeight')

x = np.linspace(0, 10)
fig, ax = plt.subplots()

ax.plot(x, np.sin(x) + x + np.random.randn(50))
ax.plot(x, np.sin(x) + 0.5 * x + np.random.randn(50))
ax.plot(x, np.sin(x) + 2 * x + np.random.randn(50))
ax.set_title("'fivethirtyeight' style sheet")
