A custom theme specifically for use with ridgeline plots

This theme has some special modifications that make ridgeline plots look better, such as properly aligned y axis labels. It can draw plots with and without background grids (see examples).

Usage
theme_ridges(
  font_size = 14,
  font_family = "",
  line_size = 0.5,
  grid = TRUE,
  center_axis_labels = FALSE
)
Arguments
font_size

Overall font size. Default is 14.

font_family

Default font family.

line_size

Default line size.

grid

If TRUE (default), a background grid is drawn. If FALSE, background is left empty.

center_axis_labels

If TRUE, axis labels are drawn centered. If FALSE (default), axis lables are drawn right/top-aligned.

Value

The theme.
