The ggforce Awakens (again)

The ggforce Awakens (again)

After what seems like a lifetime (at least to me), a new feature release of ggforce is available on CRAN. ggforce is my general purpose extension package for ggplot2, my first early success, what got me on twitter in the first place, and ultimately instrumental in my career move towards full-time software/R development. Despite this pedigree ggforce haven’t really received much love in the...

gganimate has transitioned to a state of release

Just to start of the year in a positive way, I’m happy to announce that gganimate is now available on CRAN. This release is the result of a pretty focused development starting in the spring 2018 prior to my useR keynote about it. Some History The g...

Entering and Exiting 2018

The year is nearly over and it is the time for reflection and navel-gazing. I don’t have incredibly profound things to say, but a lot of things happened in 2018 and this is as good a time as any to go through it all… Picking Myself Up The prospect...

transformr: Age of Spatial

Once again, I gives me great pleasure to announce a new package has joined CRAN. transformr is the spatial brother of tweenr and as with the tweenr update a few months ago, this package is very much driven by the infrastructural needs of gganimate. It is probably the last piece needed before I can begin preparing gganimate for CRAN, so if you are...

The tweenr is all grown up

NOTE: tweenr was released some time ago but a theft of my computer while writing the release post meant that I only just finished writing about it now. I’m very happy to once again announce a package update, as a new major version of tweenr is now on CRAN. This release, while significant in itself, is also an important part of getting gganimate...

What Are We Plotting, What Are We Animating

This is my first blog post about gganimate — a package I’ve been working on since mid-spring this year. I have many thoughts and lots to say about animation and gganimate, so much in fact that it has seemed too big a task to begin writing about. Further, I felt like I had to spend my time developing the...

Scico and the Colour Conundrum

I’m happy to once again announce the release of a package. This time it happens to be a rather unplanned and quick new package, which is fun for a change. The package in question is scico which provides access to the colour palettes developed by Fabio Crameri as well as scale functions for ggplot2 so they can be used...

I’m happy to report a new major release of lime has landed on CRAN. lime is an R port of the Python library of the same name by Marco Ribeiro that allows the user to pry open black box machine learning models and explain their outcomes on a per-observation basis. It works by modelling the outcome of the black...

Let it flow, let it flow, let it flow

I got a new package on CRAN! It’s called particles and it sits right in the perfect intersection of fun, cool, and useful. If you don’t believe me, have a look at the Venn diagram below — charts don’t lie! So what is this all about? particles is an R implementation of The d3-force algorithm developed by Mike Bostock and can...

tidygraph 1.1 – A tidy hope

I am very pleased to tell you that the next version of tidygraph (1.1) is now available on CRAN. This is not a bug-fix release, nor a change-it-all release, but rather a more-of-it-all release, and in this post I’m going to tell you all about it. The idea of tidygraph Before we enter the goldmine of new features that makes this...
