brickr counterpart to ggplot2::scale_fill_discrete() to map bar colors to the palette of LEGO mold colors.

scale_fill_brick(brick_theme = "classic", ...)



Color palette for bricks. Same as brickr::theme_brick(). Options include: c("classic", "hp", "sw_light", "sw_dark", "friends", "elves", "ninja", "classy", "city", "ocean", "movie", "space", "jurassic", "duplo", "superhero", "80s", "rainbow7", "rainbow13", "doublerainbow", "blue").


Arguments passed on to discrete_scale


A palette function that when called with a single integer argument (the number of levels in the scale) returns the values that they should take.


One of:

  • NULL for no breaks

  • waiver() for the default breaks computed by the transformation object

  • A character vector of breaks

  • A function that takes the limits as input and returns breaks as output


A character vector that defines possible values of the scale and their order.


Should unused factor levels be omitted from the scale? The default, TRUE, uses the levels that appear in the data; FALSE uses all the levels in the factor.


Unlike continuous scales, discrete scales can easily show missing values, and do so by default. If you want to remove missing values from a discrete scale, specify na.translate = FALSE.


If na.translate = TRUE, what value aesthetic value should missing be displayed as? Does not apply to position scales where NA is always placed at the far right.


The name of the scale


The name of the scale. Used as the axis or legend title. If waiver(), the default, the name of the scale is taken from the first mapping used for that aesthetic. If NULL, the legend title will be omitted.


One of:

  • NULL for no labels

  • waiver() for the default labels computed by the transformation object

  • A character vector giving labels (must be same length as breaks)

  • A function that takes the breaks as input and returns labels as output


A function used to create a guide or its name. See guides() for more info.
