You’ve just made an amazing plot in R, and the only thing remaining is finding the right colours to use. Arghhh this part is never fun… Yu’re probably familiar with this loop: try some colour values -> plot -> try different colours -> plot -> repeat. Don’t you wish there was a better way?
Well, now there is :)
If you’ve ever had to spend a long time perfecting the colour scheme of a plot, you might find the new Plot Colour Helper handy. It’s an RStudio addin that lets you interactively choose combinations of colours for your plot, while updating your plot in real-time so you can see the colour changes immediately.
