Quickly choosing colors and making palettes in R can be a chore.
The functions in
choosecolor are a simple set of functions
which can help to rapidly select colors in R. Using the "locator"
functionality in R, it enables an interactive way of selecting colors
visually for use in R graphics. It is built to be lightweight and
depends on nothing but the base R installation.
It's nothing fancy, just functional.
Currently there isn't a release on CRAN,
though there may one day be one. You can still
download the zip
or tar ball.
Then decompress and run
R CMD INSTALL on it,
or use the devtools package to install the development version
(following code courtesy of dasonk ).
## Make sure your current packages are up to date update.packages() ## devtools is required library(devtools) install_github("choosecolor", "MarcoDVisser")
# pick a color mycol<-color.choose() #make a pallete Mypalette<-palette.picker(n=5) # use your palette e.g. Mypalette(10) # Get more detail in choice with the color wheel color.wheel()
The inspiration for this comes from dsparks,
However I wanted to have similar functionality as the
version from dsparks (or the other two) but without the heavy overhead (e.g. packages), with
more colors, and a simpler plot to pick from.
