What is it ?

colormap package provides simple utilities to convert colors between RGB, HEX, HLS, HUV and a class to easily build colormaps for matplotlib.

Installation

pip install colormap

Example

  • Create your own colormap from red to green colors with intermediate color as whitish (diverging map from red to green):

    c = Colormap()
    mycmap = c.cmap( {'red':[1,1,0], 'green':[0,1,.39], 'blue':[0,1,0]})
    cmap = c.test_colormap(mycmap)
    
  • Even simpler if the colormap is linear:

    c = Colormap()
    mycmap = c.cmap_linear('red', 'black', 'green')
    cmap = c.test_colormap(mycmap)

  • check out the available colormaps:

    c = Colormap()
    c.plot_colormap('diverging')
