[Matplotlib-devel] Turbo, An Improved Rainbow Colormap for Visualization

An interesting effort to sanitize the rainbow colormap (with a lot of comparisons with the inferno and viridis colormaps): https://ai.googleblog.com/2019/08/turbo-improved-rainbow-colormap-for.html

Fascinating! I have been wondering if doubling up the brightness curve would be possible.

Very interesting.

It seems the license is Apache 2.0

Could this be included in Matplotlib ?

Best,

My current view is yes, but targeting 3.3 to give it time to anneal a bit.
