11.25 Colour Names


R provides a collection of predefined named colours as returned by grDevices::colours():

## [1] 657
colours() %>% sample(12)
##  [1] "coral4"         "lightsalmon"    "gray53"         "red3"          
##  [5] "grey56"         "peru"           "khaki1"         "firebrick2"    
##  [9] "aquamarine"     "gray52"         "paleturquoise4" "gray71"

Colours can be selected using epitools::colors.plot() with locator=``TRUE to display a plot containing all of the named colours. Multiple clicks with the left mouse button on colours (we hear a beep for each click) will return the colour names.
