Removing padding or margins from Bokeh Figures

is it possible to get rid of the padding (or margin) on the sides of bokeh figures?

I’ve been looking at various figures and they all seem to have this blank area to their left. I also tried changing the borders for example:

s1.min_border_left = 0 or change it to s1.min_border_left = 40

but it doesn’t seem to do the job, it changes the border but somehow it seems that there is a padding that is fixed and not changable, an example of the area i’d like to get rid of:

so is it possible to get rid of that and just have the figure stick to the left side of the browser?

this margin isn’t a part of a figure, but just the styling of the generated HTML. This is configured in https://github.com/bokeh/bokeh/blob/master/bokeh/core/_templates/file.html#L35. You can change this, but make sure you leave width and height there, because responsive plots depend on having those set (unless you don’t need responsive plots). In https://github.com/bokeh/bokeh/blob/master/examples/plotting/file/css_classes.py you can see how to use a custom HTML template for bokeh plots.

As an aside, I first thought this was a matter of needing to set Plot.h_symmetry to be False. But it looks like this property is currently ignored. In any case the examples in the user guide demonstrate the min_border_left, etc. do function as desired:

  http://bokeh.pydata.org/en/latest/docs/user_guide/styling.html#border

You can confirm this as well by shading your border with some fill color. That will show what part of the padding is no Bokeh's HTML canvas, vs what is HTML/CSS as Mateusz describes.

Thanks,

Bryan
