# d3-scale-chromatic

This module provides sequential, diverging and categorical color schemes designed to work with [d3-scale](https://github.com/d3/d3-scale)’s [d3.scaleOrdinal](https://github.com/d3/d3-scale#ordinal-scales) and [d3.scaleSequential](https://github.com/d3/d3-scale#sequential-scales). Most of these schemes are derived from Cynthia A. Brewer’s [ColorBrewer](http://colorbrewer2.org). Since ColorBrewer publishes only discrete color schemes, the sequential and diverging scales are interpolated using [uniform B-splines](https://bl.ocks.org/mbostock/048d21cf747371b11884f75ad896e5a5).

For example, to create a categorical color scale using the [Accent](#schemeAccent) color scheme:

```js
var accent = d3.scaleOrdinal(d3.schemeAccent);
```

To create a sequential discrete nine-color scale using the [Blues](#schemeBlues) color scheme:

```js
var blues = d3.scaleOrdinal(d3.schemeBlues[9]);
```

To create a diverging, continuous color scale using the [PiYG](#interpolatePiYG) color scheme:

```js
var piyg = d3.scaleSequential(d3.interpolatePiYG);
```

## Installing

If you use NPM, `npm install d3-scale-chromatic`. Otherwise, download the [latest release](https://github.com/d3/d3-scale-chromatic/releases/latest) or load directly from [d3js.org](https://d3js.org) as a [standalone library](https://d3js.org/d3-scale-chromatic.v1.min.js). AMD, CommonJS, and vanilla environments are supported. In vanilla, a `d3` global is exported:

```html
<script src="https://d3js.org/d3-color.v1.min.js"></script>
<script src="https://d3js.org/d3-interpolate.v1.min.js"></script>
<script src="https://d3js.org/d3-scale-chromatic.v1.min.js"></script>
<script>

var yellow = d3.interpolateYlGn(0), // "rgb(255, 255, 229)"
    yellowGreen = d3.interpolateYlGn(0.5), // "rgb(120, 197, 120)"
    green = d3.interpolateYlGn(1); // "rgb(0, 69, 41)"

</script>
```

Or, as part of the [D3 default bundle](https://github.com/d3/d3):

```html
<script src="https://d3js.org/d3.v5.min.js"></script>
<script>

var yellow = d3.interpolateYlGn(0), // "rgb(255, 255, 229)"
    yellowGreen = d3.interpolateYlGn(0.5), // "rgb(120, 197, 120)"
    green = d3.interpolateYlGn(1); // "rgb(0, 69, 41)"

</script>
```

### Diverging

Diverging color schemes are available as continuous interpolators (often used with [d3.scaleSequential](https://github.com/d3/d3-scale/blob/master/README.md#sequential-scales)) and as discrete schemes (often used with [d3.scaleOrdinal](https://github.com/d3/d3-scale/blob/master/README.md#ordinal-scales)). Each discrete scheme, such as [d3.schemeBrBG](#schemeBrBG), is represented as an array of arrays of hexadecimal color strings. The *k*th element of this array contains the color scheme of size *k*; for example, `d3.schemeBrBG[9]` contains an array of nine strings representing the nine colors of the brown-blue-green diverging color scheme. Diverging color schemes support a size *k* ranging from 3 to 11.
