Pretty colors for charts using Chart

Monday I was creating a graph for my webshop software. I use the Chart module, but the colors and the graph of the default settings aren’t really pretty. So I tried to create a better looking chart. I think I succeeded at least a bit. Here is the code that I used to get this result: my $c = Chart::Composite->new(1024, 250); $c->set(composite_info => [ [ 'Lines', [1] ], [ 'Points', [2] ], ]); $c->set(precision => 0); $c->set(skip_x_ticks => 7); $c->set(max_y_ticks => 11); $c->set(min_y_ticks => 2); $c->set(legend => 'none'); $c->set(grey_background => 'false'); $c->set(y_grid_lines => 'true'); $c->set(colors => { 'background' => [255,255,255], 'misc' => [200,200,200], 'x_grid_lines' => [220,220,220], 'y_grid_lines' => [220,220,220], 'dataset0'=>[150,180,250], 'dataset1'=>[120,140,240], }); my $label = 'x'; my $val = 10; $c->add_pt($label, $val, $val); You should call add_pt for each point you want to show....
