Matplotlib: How to format angle in degrees (°)

Based on our previous post on Matplotlib custom SI-prefix unit tick formatters, this is a simple snippet which you can use to format the Y axis of your matplotlib plots. In our example, the function shows 2 digits after the decimal points (.2f) but you can change that to how ever many you prefer.

import matplotlib.ticker as mtick
from matplotlib import pyplot as plt

def format_degrees(value, pos=None):
    return f'{value:.2f} °'
