classmethod LinearSegmentedColormap.from_list(name, colors, ratios=None, **kwargs)[source]

Make a LinearSegmentedColormap from a list of colors.

  • name (str) – The colormap name.

  • colors (list of color-spec or (float, color-spec) tuples, optional) – If list of RGB[A] tuples or color strings, the colormap transitions evenly from colors[0] at the left-hand side to colors[-1] at the right-hand side.

    If list of (float, color-spec) tuples, the float values are the coordinate of each transition and must range from 0 to 1. This can be used to divide the colormap range unevenly.

  • ratios (list of float, optional) – Relative extents of each color transition. Must have length len(colors) - 1. Larger numbers indicate a slower transition, smaller numbers indicate a faster transition.

Other Parameters

**kwargs – Passed to LinearSegmentedColormap.


LinearSegmentedColormap – The colormap.
