11.12 Colour Names

20200608

R provides a collection of predefined named colours as returned by grDevices::colours():

length(colours())
## [1] 657
colours() %>% sample(12)
##  [1] "mistyrose"       "cornsilk3"       "seagreen"        "darkseagreen"   
##  [5] "palevioletred3"  "antiquewhite3"   "gray4"           "grey83"         
##  [9] "ivory"           "coral3"          "brown1"          "lightsteelblue1"

Colours can be selected using epitools::colors.plot() with locator=``TRUE to display a plot containing all of the named colours. Multiple clicks with the left mouse button on colours (we hear a beep for each click) will return the colour names.

as.character(colors.plot(locator=TRUE)$color.names)
