About this book
This book and app is for practitioners, professionals, researchers, and students who want to learn how to make a plot within the R environment using ggplot2, step-by-step without coding.
This manual—"integrating" R, ggplot2, and Shiny—introduces a new Shiny app, Learn ggplot2, that allows users to make plots easily without coding. With the Learn ggplot2 Shiny app, users can make plots using ggplot2 without having to code each step, reducing typos and error messages and allowing users to become familiar with ggplot2 code. The app makes it easy to apply themes, make multiplots (combining several plots into one plot), and download plots as PNG, PDF, or PowerPoint files with editable vector graphics. Users can also make plots on any computer or smart phone.
Learn ggplot2 Using Shiny App allows users to
- Make publication-ready plots in minutes without coding
- Download plots with desired width, height, and resolution
- Plot and download plots in png, pdf, and PowerPoint formats, with or without R code and with editable vector graphics
