Repository themes

Creating Themes for your Repositories: creations need to be different, unique. Premium users now have more customization options for the charts, so it will no longer be something like “A customer can have a car painted any color he wants as long as it’s black”. Users can define a Default Theme for a repository and everything inside will look like that. Available parameters are:

  • Custom Color Palettes
  • Font Family and color
  • Background and chart area color
  • Header text-align (left / center)
  • Line Width and show/hide line markers
  • Show/hide horizontal axis Gridlines
  • Show/hide axis borders

Here are some examples of themes that can be created with these options:
