The goal of this article is to describe how to change the color of a graph generated using R software and ggplot2 package. A color can be specified either by name (e. g. : red) or by hexadecimal code (e. g. : The functions scalecolourmanual(), scalefillmanual(), scalesizemanual(), etc. work on the aesthetics specified in the scale name: colour, fill, size, etc. ggplot2 is a part of the tidyverse, an ecosystem of packages designed with common APIs and a shared philosophy.
this works beautifully! i missed the very first time you need to give colour" group" to geomline (which doesn't really mean a proper colour), and only then scalecolormanual with the same names defined in colour geomline!

Instead of changing colors globally, you can map variables to colors in other words, make the color conditional on a variable, by putting it inside an aes() statement.

A palette function that when called with a single integer argument (the number of levels in the scale) returns the values that they should take ggplot(aes(x'wt y'mpg datamtcars) \ geompoint() \" purple"" orange" ) ggplot2 scalecolourmanual(). According to Hadley's ggplot book (p. 109), both the graphs below should have a legend, and yet none appears in my hands.
Any suggestions? Specifying Colours. In R, a colour is represented as a string (see Color Specification section of the R par function). Basically, a colour is defined, like in HTMLCSS, using the hexadecimal values (00 to FF) for red, green, and blue, concatenated into a string, prefixed with a" # " .
