[query] Generate infinite discrete colors #11613

merged 7 commits into from
Mar 24, 2022


Copy link

Prior to this PR, when someone specified they'd like to color a plot by a discrete variable, we used a predetermined list of 10 colors to assign colors. If something used more than 10 colors, it'd wrap around.

This PR changes scale_color_discrete to be an alias for scale_color_hue, as it is in ggplot. scale_color_hue works by sampling evenly spaced points around a color wheel to create a set of maximally distant colors.

The old behavior is now achievable by using scale_color_manual, which takes in a list of colors and assigns colors based on that list.
