Better Stata graphical schemes
version 1.0 1jul2019
This package provides graphical themes (schemes) for Stata that are intended to imitate defaults from popular plotting libraries in other languages (e.g. matplotlib). You can check out some pictures of what these schemes look like in the Screenshots section below. As always, scheme settings (e.g. legend placement, color options) can always be overridden.
Installation is straightforward:
- Install this package directly from this GitHub repo by typing the following command in a Stata prompt:
net install scheme-modern, from("https://raw.githubusercontent.com/mdroste/stata-scheme-modern/master/")
- To use the light-colored theme, simply type:
set scheme modern, perm
- To use the dark-colored theme instead, simply type:
set scheme modern_dark, perm
These schemes were built by combining elements from two existing schemes: (1) the leap-slides used by the Opportunity Insights research group from 2015 to present; (2) the cleanplots scheme produced by Trenton D. Mize.
