canvas_diamonds {aRtsy}R Documentation

Draw Diamonds

Description

This function draws diamonds on a canvas and (optionally) places two lines behind them. The diamonds can be transparent or have a random color sampled from the input.

Usage

canvas_diamonds(colors, background = "#fafafa", col.line = "black",
                radius = 10, alpha = 1, p = 0.2, resolution = 500)

Arguments

colors

a string or character vector specifying the color(s) used for the artwork.

background

a character specifying the color used for the background.

col.line

a character specifying the color of the diamond borders.

radius

a positive value specifying the radius of the diamonds.

alpha

a value specifying the transparency of the diamonds. If NULL (the default), added layers become increasingly more transparent.

p

a value specifying the probability of drawing an empty diamond.

resolution

resolution of the artwork in pixels per row/column. Increasing the resolution increases the quality of the artwork but also increases the computation time exponentially.

Value

A ggplot object containing the artwork.
