How to fix matplotlib .title() TypeError: ‘Text’ object is not callable

Problem:

You want to set the title of a matplotlib plot usingĀ .title("My title") but you see an error messsage like

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
TypeError                                 Traceback (most recent call last)
<ipython-input-11-f5f930f00eac> in <module>
---> 10 axs[0].title("My title")

TypeError: 'Text' object is not callable

Solution:

Use .set_title("My title") instead of .title("My title") !

While

from matplotlib import pyplot as plt

plt.title("My title")

works fine, if you have an axes object like the one you get fromĀ plt.subplots(), you’ll have to use set_title()!

from matplotlib import pyplot as plt
fig, axs = plt.subplots(2, 1)
# ...
axs[0].set_title("My title")
