Providing a figure for the thumbnail image#

This example demonstrates how to provide a figure that is displayed as the thumbnail. This is done by specifying the keyword-value pair sphinx_gallery_thumbnail_path = 'fig path' as a comment somewhere below the docstring in the example file. In this example, we specify that we wish the figure demo.png in the folder _static to be used for the thumbnail.

import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

# sphinx_gallery_thumbnail_path = '_static/demo.png'
x = np.linspace(0, 4 * np.pi, 301)
y1 = np.sin(x)
y2 = np.cos(x)

Plot 1#

plt.figure()
plt.plot(x, y1, label="sin")
plt.plot(x, y2, label="cos")
plt.legend()
plt.show()
plot 4b provide thumbnail

Plot 2#

plt.figure()
plt.plot(x, y1, label="sin")
plt.plot(x, y2, label="cos")
plt.legend()
plt.xscale("log")
plt.yscale("log")
plt.show()
plot 4b provide thumbnail
