How to use seaborn colors with Matplotlib

1 min

Seaborn is a Python data visualization library based on Matplotlib.

It will help you make cool-looking plots.

Seaborn's color scheme is often preferred to Matplotlib's default.

Using the simple method seaborn.set() to change the default Matplotlib theme to the seaborn one.

# For our example dataframe
import pandas as pd

# For our plot
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

# We import seaborn
import seaborn as sns

# We change the theme here 

# Generating sample data
df = pd.DataFrame({"col1":range(10)})

# Creating a canvas for our plots
fig, axes = plt.subplots(1,1, figsize=(12,6))

# We plot with a label parameter that will be in our legend.

# We make our canvas tidy and clean

# We show the graph
