hues: Distinct Colours Palettes Based on 'iwanthue'

Creating effective colour palettes for figures is challenging. This package generates and plot palettes of optimally distinct colours in perceptually uniform colour space, based on 'iwanthue' <>. This is done through k-means clustering of CIE Lab colour space, according to user-selected constraints on hue, chroma, and lightness.
