                n=NULL, alpha=1)

alpha.col(col, alpha)

Arguments

name

n

optional: number of colours to return. The palette will be shortened or recycled as necessary.

a vector of R colour specifications (as accepted by col2rgb)

alpha

alpha value between 0 and 1; values below 1 make the colours translucent

Every colour palette starts with the colours black, red, green and blue in this order.

seaborn, muted and bright are 7-colour palettes inspired by the seaborn data visualization library, but add a shade of dark grey as first colour.

simple is a 10-colour palette based on R's default palette.
