Default theme for the package: theme_ggstatsplot

ggstatsplot uses a default theme theme_ggstatsplot(), which is a selected ggplot2 theme with few aesthetic modifications overlaid on top, that can be used with any ggplot2 object. Alternative name for this function is theme_mprl.

Here is a simple example:

library(ggplot2)

ggstatsplot::combine_plots(
  # basic scatter plot
  ggplot2::ggplot(
    data = datasets::mtcars,
    mapping = ggplot2::aes(x = wt, y = mpg)
  ) +
    ggplot2::geom_point(),
  # basic scatter plot with theme_ggstatsplot() added
  ggplot2::ggplot(
    data = datasets::mtcars,
    mapping = ggplot2::aes(x = wt, y = mpg)
  ) +
    ggplot2::geom_point() +
    ggstatsplot::theme_ggstatsplot(),
  labels = c("(i)", "(ii)"),
  nrow = 1,
  title.text = "Plot with and without ggstatsplot theme"
)

All plots in this package have theme_bw() by default as the base on which theme_ggstatsplot() is built, but this can be modified using the ggtheme argument. Let’s see an example with ggcorrmat function.

ggstatsplot::ggcorrmat(
  data = datasets::iris,
  cor.vars = c(Sepal.Length:Petal.Width),
  matrix.type = "upper",
  ggtheme = ggthemes::theme_fivethirtyeight(),            # selected ggplot2 theme
  ggstatsplot.layer = FALSE
)

Try modifying the theme for other functions (use themes from ggplot2, ggthemes, hrbrthemes, etc.).
