How to make inline plots in Jupyter Notebook larger?
The default figure size (in inches) is controlled by
matplotlib.rcParams['figure.figsize'] = [width, height]
import matplotlib.pyplot as pltplt.rcParams['figure.figsize'] = [10, 5]
creates a figure with 10 (width) x 5 (height) inches
Yes, play with
dpi like so (before you call your subplot):
fig=plt.figure(figsize=(12,8), dpi= 100, facecolor='w', edgecolor='k')
As @tacaswell and @Hagne pointed out, you can also change the defaults if it's not a one-off:
plt.rcParams['figure.figsize'] = [12, 8]plt.rcParams['figure.dpi'] = 100 # 200 e.g. is really fine, but slower
I have found that
%matplotlib notebook works better for me than inline with Jupyter notebooks.
Note that you may need to restart the kernel if you were using
%matplotlib inline before.
