How to save a Seaborn plot into a file

I tried the following code (

test_seaborn.py
):

import matplotlib
matplotlib.use('Agg')
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
matplotlib.style.use('ggplot')
import seaborn as sns
sns.set()
df = sns.load_dataset('iris')
sns_plot = sns.pairplot(df, hue='species', size=2.5)
fig = sns_plot.get_figure()
fig.savefig("output.png")
#sns.plt.show()


But I get this error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "test_searborn.py", line 11, in <module>
fig = sns_plot.get_figure()
AttributeError: 'PairGrid' object has no attribute 'get_figure'


I expect the final
output.png
will exist and look like this:

enter image description here

How can I resolve the problem?

Answer

Remove the get_figure and just use sns_plot.savefig('output.png')

df = sns.load_dataset('iris')
sns_plot = sns.pairplot(df, hue='species', size=2.5)
sns_plot.savefig("output.png")
