Shiny app to explore ggplot2

June 5, 2017

(This article was first published on, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

Do you struggle with learning ggplot2? Do you have problems with understanding what aesthetics actually do and how manipulating them change your plots?

Here is the solution! Explore 33 ggplot2 geoms on one website!

I created this ggplot2 explorer to help all R learners to understand how to plot beautiful/useful charts using the most popular vizualization package ggplot2. It won’t teach you how to write a code, but definitely will show you how ggplot2 geoms look like, and how manipulating their arguments changes visualization. 

You can find my app here

And you can find code on my github
