So far in this book, you’ve learned how to plot our data, customize the plot aspect, and even combine different plots to create more complex figures. In this chapter, we will use that knowledge to develop new plot types using the recipe system. The Julia ecosystem heavily uses this system, and we have already seen examples of these Plots recipes in this book, such as the recipes for plotting statistical plots, graphs, and maps. This last example is interesting as it also uses the shape series to draw polygons, which is helpful when drawing with Plots and creating custom markers — two topics we will address in this chapter.
