    Project mention: Resources to learn how to create custom package for ggplot2 extension (color palettes, themes, axis, etc)? | reddit.com/r/RStudio | 2022-09-23

    Look at the code of existing projects, eg. ggthemes: https://github.com/jrnold/ggthemes

  • ggthemr

  • clusterProfiler

    :bar_chart: A universal enrichment tool for interpreting omics data

    Project mention: Visualizing gene ontology output | reddit.com/r/bioinformatics | 2023-03-07

    The Bioconductor package enrichplot has some nice functions for visualizing the results of clusterProfiler. See: https://yulab-smu.top/biomedical-knowledge-mining-book/

  • ggtree

    :christmas_tree:Visualization and annotation of phylogenetic trees

    Project mention: Advice about R for bioinformatics (ggtree and metadata) | reddit.com/r/bioinformatics | 2022-12-14

    I don’t have a lot of experience with this particular package, but if a package provides vignettes I like to look through those. ggtree seems to provide an entire book, which may be helpful to you. You could also look at the examples in the docs, or other scripts people have written. If you find some, read through them line by line and try to understand what they’re doing. Run each line and look at what the output is. See if you can reproduce the example analyses on your own, maybe with different data. That’ll help you learn the packages with more training wheels than just striking out on your own, and then once you get more comfortable you should be able to branch out more.

  • ggshakeR

  • ggtranscript

    Visualizing transcript structure and annotation using ggplot2

    Project mention: representing gene/transcript layout with variants, suitable approaches? | reddit.com/r/bioinformatics | 2023-03-03

    https://github.com/dzhang32/ggtranscript and https://github.com/kauralasoo/wiggleplotr look like good starting points, and since they output ggplot objects you can add some layers (like geom_segment or other geometries, and ggrepel for labels) to annotate them. Otherwise you can go the "from scratch" route using ggplot with some polygons and segments.

  • echarty

    The goal of echarty is to provide a minimal interface, a “glue”, between R and ECharts, then let your R data lists build the chart. There are utilities included to assist with data preparation, Shiny with proxy and JS plugins. Have the full functionality of ECharts in R with minimal overhead!

    Project mention: echarts4r VS echarty - a user suggested alternative | libhunt.com/r/echarts4r | 2022-06-02
