class eelbrain.plot.ColorList(colors, cells=None, labels=None, size=None, h=None, shape='box', markersize=None, **kwargs)

Plot colors with labels

  • colors (Dict[str | Tuple[str, ...], Any]) – Colors for cells.

  • cells (Sequence[str | Tuple[str, ...]]) – Cells for which to plot colors (default is colors.keys()).

  • labels (Dict[str | Tuple[str, ...], str]) – Condition labels that are used instead of the keys in colors. This is useful if colors uses abbreviated labels, but the color legend should contain more intelligible labels.

  • size (float) – Size (width and height) of the color squares (the default is to scale them to fit the font size).

  • h (float) – Height of the figure in inches (default is chosen to fit all labels).

  • shape (Literal['box', 'line', 'marker']) – Shape for color samples (default ‘box’).

  • markersize (float) – Size of markers in points.

  • ... – Also accepts General layout parameters.
