In addition to the new palettes and themes some of the code in tvthemes has changed significantly.

In palettes for example, when you are calling the palette functions via scale_fill_*() or scale_color_*() you now have a lot more options:

  • palette: If multiple available, select the palette: “Stannis”, “FireNation”, “Dusk”, etc. Leave blank if only single palette available.
  • n: Number of colors. If left blank it defaults to the total number of colors available in the palette.
  • type: “Discrete” or “Continuous”. NOTE: Most palettes are only optimized for “Discrete” at the present time.
  • reverse: Reverse order of colors. TRUE/FALSE

For TV shows with multiple palettes they are now organized under a single “palette list” from which you pass the specific palette that you want. If you want to check out the colors for these specific palettes:

## Previously:
scales::show_col(tvthemes:::lannister_palette)
scales::show_col(tvthemes:::brooklyn99_dark_palette)

## Now:
scales::show_col(tvthemes:::westeros_palette$Lannister)
scales::show_col(tvthemes:::brooklyn99_palette$Dark)

The specific palettes that changed are:

  • Brooklyn Nine-Nine: Default = “Regular”, “Dark”
  • Avatar: The Last Airbender: Default = “FireNation”, “EarthKingdom”, “WaterTribe”, “AirNation”
  • Hilda: Default = “Day”, “Dusk”, “Night”
  • Game of Thrones/A Song of Ice & Fire: Default = “Stark”, “Stannis”, “Tyrell”, “Lannister”, “Manderly”, “Martell”, “Arryn”, “Greyjoy”, “Targaryen”, “Tully”

For themes the one change is a toggle option for axis ticks via ticks which you can set to either TRUE and the default FALSE.
