Three minimalistic themes that provide either a full grid, a horizontal grid, or a vertical grid. Similar to theme_minimal(), but with some stylistic differences. Most importantly, these themes do not draw minor grid lines. Also, font sizes are coordinated with theme_half_open() and with the defaults in the save_plot() function.

theme_minimal_grid(font_size = 14, font_family = "", line_size = 0.5,
  rel_small = 12/14, rel_tiny = 11/14, rel_large = 16/14,
  color = "grey85", colour)

theme_minimal_vgrid(font_size = 14, font_family = "",
  line_size = 0.5, rel_small = 12/14, rel_tiny = 11/14,
  rel_large = 16/14, color = "grey85", colour)

theme_minimal_hgrid(font_size = 14, font_family = "",
  line_size = 0.5, rel_small = 12/14, rel_tiny = 11/14,
  rel_large = 16/14, color = "grey85", colour)

Arguments

font_size

Overall font size.

font_family

Font family for plot title, axis titles and labels, legend texts, etc.

line_size

Line size for grid lines.

rel_small

Relative size of small text (e.g., axis tick labels)

rel_tiny

Relative size of tiny text (e.g., caption)

rel_large

Relative size of large text (e.g., title)

color, colour

Color of grid lines.

Details

theme_minimal_grid() provides a minimal grid theme. theme_minimal_hgrid() strips down this theme even further and draws only horizontal lines, and theme_minimal_vgrid() does the same for vertical lines.

Examples

library(ggplot2) # theme_minimal_grid() ggplot(iris, aes(x = Sepal.Length, y = Sepal.Width, color = Species)) + geom_point() + theme_minimal_grid()
# theme_minimal_hgrid() ggplot(mtcars, aes(x = carb)) + geom_bar(fill = "lightblue") + scale_y_continuous(limits = c(0, 11.5), expand = c(0, 0)) + theme_minimal_hgrid()
# theme_minimal_vgrid() ggplot(mtcars, aes(x = carb)) + geom_bar(fill = "lightblue") + scale_y_continuous(limits = c(0, 11.5), expand = c(0, 0)) + coord_flip() + theme_minimal_vgrid()
