Someone told me that there’s even code that allows you to order pizza (spoiler alert: you actually cannot order pizza using R :( ). But if you’re not hungry, the statistical capabilities

Split violin plots

(This article was first published on Ecology in silico, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers) Violin plots are useful for comparing distributions. When data are grouped by a factor with two levels (e.g. males and females), you can split the violins in half to see the difference between groups. Consider a 2 x 2 factorial experiment: treatments A and B...

I won’t go into much detail about the differences in syntax, the idea is more to give a gist about how the different modeling languages...
