About the bundle
Jodie Burchell and yours truly have published two books, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Ggplot and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Plotnine, on graphing in both R and Python using ggplot2 and plotnine, which are cross-language equivalents.
You can get the two books together for a special price if you buy The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Ggplot2 + The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Plotnine.
If you’d like to create highly customised plots, including replicating the styles of XKCD and also learning Python by doing what you do in R or viceversa, this is your combo!
This combo includes the R Markdown and Jupyter notebooks with all the exercises from the books.
Here’s a part of the steps to create the covers:
library(dplyr) library(ggplot2) library(grid) library(datasauRus) g <- ggplot() + geom_point( data = filter(datasaurus_dozen, dataset == "dino"), aes(x = x, y = y), color = "#9ccbc7", size = 4 ) + theme_minimal() + theme( plot.background = element_rect(fill = "#007d73"), axis.line = element_line(color = "#007d73"), panel.grid.minor = element_blank(), axis.ticks = element_line(color = "#007d73"), axis.text = element_text(color = "#9ccbc7", family = "DecimaMonoPro", size = 16), axis.title = element_text(color = "#9ccbc7", family = "DecimaMonoPro", size = 24) ) print( g, vp = viewport( angle = 15, width = unit(.75, "npc"), height = unit(.75, "npc") ) )
