Consistently Beautiful Visualizations with Altair Themes

Abstract

If you are a data visualization fan or practitioner who also uses python you may have heard of Jake Vanderplas and Brian Granger’s altair: ‘a declarative statistical visualization library for Python, based on Vega and Vega-lite’. With Altair, you can spend more time understanding your data and its meaning. Altair’s API is simple, friendly and consistent and built on top of the powerful Vega-Lite visualization grammar. This elegant simplicity produces beautiful and effective visualizations with a minimal amount of code. In this piece we’ll be digging deeper into one of altair’s less known features: themes.
