# Config file

A configuration file can be used to save theming options. The config file must be global (in joinpath(homedir(), ".config", "makie", "theme.jl")). This makes it easier to have a common style for multiple plots without explicitly giving the desired options each time.

A config file must return an Attributes object. For example, if the contents of theme.jl is the following:

Attributes(
font = "Chilanka",
backgroundcolor = :gray,
color = :blue,
linestyle = :dot,
linewidth = 3
)

There are other things that you can configure in this file before returning the Attributes, though.

## Resolution setting

You can set the default resolution, at which Scenes will be displayed, by adding the statement:

reasonable_resolution() = (800, 800)

before the attributes' declaration.

You can also configure your primary resolution, by:

primary_resolution() = (1920, 1080)
