Set up the ipython inline backend display format and ensure that inline figures always look the same as saved figures. This runs the following ipython magic commands:

%config InlineBackend.figure_formats = rc['inlinefmt']
%config InlineBackend.rc = {}  # never override rc settings
%config InlineBackend.close_figures = True  # cells start with no active figures
%config InlineBackend.print_figure_kwargs = {'bbox_inches': None}

When the inline backend is inactive or unavailable, this has no effect. This function is called when you modify the rc.inlinefmt property.


fmt (str or sequence, optional) – The inline backend file format(s). Default is rc.inlinefmt = 'retina'. Valid formats include 'jpg', 'png', 'svg', 'pdf', and 'retina'.
