Python colors

A recurrent problem in dataviz is the management of colors. It usually takes a lot of times to pick up the right colors. Fortunately, a few tools exist to make your life easier and this page

gives a few example that illustrate how they work. Note that this tool is awesome to find a precise color. Note as well that seaborn and matplotlib work almost the same way in term of color

selection. Knowing this doc, I highly advise not to use the basic python color like ‘blue’ or ‘red’ that are not very fancy!
