ggplot2: theme_black()

Black theme for ggplot2

This is an additional theme for ggplot2 that generates an inverse black and white color scheme.

Example

ggplot(mtcars, aes(wt, mpg)) + geom_point()
# Add theme_black()
ggplot(mtcars, aes(wt, mpg)) + geom_point(color = "white") + theme_black()
library(ggplot2)
library(gridExtra)
theme_black = function(base_size = 12, base_family = "") {
theme_grey(base_size = base_size, base_family = base_family) %+replace%
