Viridis color scales

Uses the viridis color scale.

Usage
scale_color_viridis(..., alpha = 1, begin = 0, end = 1, direction = 1,
  discrete = FALSE, option = "D")

scale_colour_viridis(..., alpha = 1, begin = 0, end = 1, direction = 1, discrete = FALSE, option = "D")

scale_fill_viridis(..., alpha = 1, begin = 0, end = 1, direction = 1, discrete = FALSE, option = "D")

Arguments
...

parameters to discrete_scale or scale_fill_gradientn

alpha

pass through parameter to viridis

begin

The (corrected) hue in [0,1] at which the viridis colormap begins.

end

The (corrected) hue in [0,1] at which the viridis colormap ends.

direction

Sets the order of colors in the scale. If 1, the default, colors are as output by viridis_pal. If -1, the order of colors is reversed.

discrete

generate a discrete palette? (default: FALSE - generate continuous palette)

option

A character string indicating the colormap option to use. Four options are available: "magma" (or "A"), "inferno" (or "B"), "plasma" (or "C"), "viridis" (or "D", the default option) and "cividis" (or "E").

Details

For discrete == FALSE (the default) all other arguments are as to scale_fill_gradientn or scale_color_gradientn. Otherwise the function will return a discrete_scale with the plot-computed number of colors.

See viridis for more information on the color scale.
