Additional Themes and Theme Components for ‘ggplot2’


This is a very focused package that provides typography-centric themes and theme components for ggplot2. It’s a an extract/riff of hrbrmisc created by request.

The core theme: theme_ipsum (“ipsum” is Latin for “precise”) uses Arial Narrow which should be installed on practically any modern system, so it’s “free”-ish. This font is condensed, has solid default kerning pairs and geometric numbers. That’s what I consider the “font trifecta” must-have for charts. An additional quality for fonts for charts is that they have a diversity of weights. Arial Narrow (the one on most systems, anyway) does not have said diversity but this quality is not (IMO) a “must have”.

The following functions are implemented/objects are exported:

Themes:

  • theme_ipsum: Arial Narrow
  • theme_ipsum_es: Ccon Sans Condensed
  • theme_ipsum_rc: Roboto Condensed
  • theme_ipsum_ps: IBM Plex Sans font
  • theme_ipsum_pub: Public Sans
  • theme_ipsum_tw: Titilium Web
  • theme_modern_rc: Roboto Condensed dark theme
  • theme_ft_rc: Dark theme based on FT’s dark theme (Roboto Condensed)

Scales (that align with various themes):

  • scale_color_ipsum: Discrete color & fill scales based on the ipsum palette
  • scale_colour_ipsum: Discrete color & fill scales based on the ipsum palette
  • scale_fill_ipsum: Discrete color & fill scales based on the ipsum palette
  • scale_color_ft: Discrete color & fill scales based on the FT palette
  • scale_colour_ft: Discrete color & fill scales based on the FT palette
  • scale_fill_ft: Discrete color & fill scales based on the FT palette
  • scale_x_comma: X & Y scales with opinionated presets for percent & comma label formats
  • scale_x_percent: X & Y scales with opinionated presets for percent & comma label formats
  • scale_y_comma: X & Y scales with opinionated presets for percent & comma label formats
  • scale_y_percent: X & Y scales with opinionated presets for percent & comma label formats

Palettes/Named Colors:

  • ipsum_pal: A muted, qualitative color palette
  • ft_cols: FT color palette
  • ft_pal: A bright qualitative color palette
  • ft_text_col: FT color palette

Fonts:

  • font_an: Arial Narrow font name R variable aliases
  • font_es: Econ Sans font name R variable aliases
  • font_es_bold: Econ Sans font name R variable aliases
  • font_es_light: Econ Sans font name R variable aliases
  • font_rc: Roboto Condensed font name R variable aliases
  • font_rc_light: Roboto Condensed font name R variable aliases
  • font_pub: Public Sans font name R variable aliases
  • font_pub_bold: Public Sans font name R variable aliases
  • font_pub_light: Public Sans font name R variable aliases
  • font_pub_thin: Public Sans font name R variable aliases
  • font_ps: PlexSans font name R variable aliases
  • font_ps_light: PlexSans font name R variable aliases
  • font_tw: Titillium Web font name R variable aliases
  • font_tw_bold: Titillium Web font name R variable aliases
  • font_tw_light: Titillium Web font name R variable aliases

R Markdown:

  • ipsum: ipsum R markdown template
  • ipsum_pdf: ipsum R markdown template for PDF output

Utilities:

  • flush_ticks: Makes axis text labels flush on the ends
  • ft_geom_defaults: Change geom defaults from black to custom lights for the FT theme
  • gg_check: Spell check ggplot2 plot labels
  • import_econ_sans: Import Econ Sans Condensed font for use in charts
  • import_plex_sans: Import IBM Plex Sans font for use in charts
  • import_roboto_condensed: Import Roboto Condensed font for use in charts
  • import_titillium_web: Import Titillium Web font for use in charts
  • modern_geom_defaults: Change geom defaults from black to white for the modern theme
  • update_geom_font_defaults: Update matching font defaults for text geoms
