Master `plt.annotate()` to take your plots to the next level

Master `plt.annotate()` to take your plots to the next level

Learn how to place text anywhere on the plot and draw arrows. I gave a brief intro there and decided to write a separate article. So, here I am, teaching how to annotate any plot in a fully controlled manner in less than 9 minutes.

Motivation

Every single tutorial or course I took did not care to spend more than 10 minutes to explain how to control annotations in Matplotlib. If I googled the topic, the first 5 or 6 links are all from Matplotlib documentation, the rest are just slightly altered versions of it 🤦‍♂️.

While I was writing an article about styling plots, I realized that the topic was too big to fit into a single section. I gave a brief intro there and decided to write a separate article. So, here I am, teaching how to annotate any plot in a fully controlled manner in less than 9 minutes. Enjoy!
