Scientific colormaps for making stunning and 'cmashing' plots

Project description

PyPI - Latest Release PyPI - Python Versions Travis CI - Build Status AppVeyor - Build Status ReadTheDocs - Build Status CodeCov - Coverage Status


This package contains a collection of scientific colormaps for making stunning and cmashing plots, showcased in the online documentation. The colormaps in CMasher are all designed to be perceptually uniform sequential, most of them are color vision deficiency (CVD; colorblind) friendly and they cover a wide range of different color combinations to accommodate for most applications. If you cannot find your ideal colormap here, then please open an issue, provide the colors and/or style you want, and I will try to create one to your liking! Let’s get rid of all bad colormaps in the world together!

If you use CMasher for your work, then please star the repo, such that I can keep track of how many users it has and more easily raise awareness of bad colormaps.
