#' HCL-Based Discrete Qualitative Color Scales for ggplot2
#'
#' Discrete ggplot2 color scales using the color palettes generated by \code{\link{qualitative_hcl}}. 
#'
#' 
#' If both a valid palette name and palette parameters are provided then the provided palette parameters overwrite the parameters in the
#' named palette. This enables easy customization of named palettes.
#' 
#' @param c1 Chroma value, used for all colors in the scale.
#' @param l1 Luminance value, used for all colors in the scale.
#' @param h1 Beginning hue value.
#' @param h2 Ending hue value.
#' @param alpha Numeric vector of values in the range \code{[0, 1]} for alpha transparency channel (0 means transparent and 1 means opaque).
#' @param rev If \code{TRUE}, reverses the order of the colors in the color scale.
#' @param palette The name of the palette to be used. Run \code{hcl_palettes(type = "qualitative")} for available options.
#' @param nmax Maximum number of different colors the palette should contain. If not provided, is calculated automatically
#'  from the data.
#' @param order Numeric vector listing the order in which the colors should be used. Default is \code{1:nmax}.
#' @param aesthetics The ggplot2 aesthetics to which this scale should be applied.
#' @param ... common discrete scale parameters: \code{name}, \code{breaks}, \code{labels}, \code{na.value}, \code{limits} and \code{guide}. See
#'  \code{\link[ggplot2]{discrete_scale}} for more details.

#' HCL-Based Continuous Qualitative Color Scales for ggplot2
#'
#' Continuous ggplot2 color scales using the color palettes generated by \code{\link{qualitative_hcl}}. These scales are provided
#' for completeness. It is not normally a good idea to color a continuous variable using a qualitative scale.
#'
#' If both a valid palette name and palette parameters are provided then the provided palette parameters overwrite the parameters in the
#' named palette. This enables easy customization of named palettes.
#' 
#' @inheritParams scale_colour_discrete_qualitative
#' @param begin Number in the range of \code{[0, 1]} indicating to which point in the color scale the smallest data value should be mapped.
#' @param end Number in the range of \code{[0, 1]} indicating to which point in the color scale the largest data value should be mapped.
#' @param na.value Color to be used for missing data points.
#' @param guide Type of legend. Use \code{"colourbar"} for continuous color bar. 
#' @param n_interp Number of discrete colors that should be used to interpolate the continuous color scale. 11 will work fine in most cases.
#' @param ... common continuous scale parameters: `name`, `breaks`, `labels`, and `limits`. See
#'  \code{\link[ggplot2]{continuous_scale}} for more details.
