ggplot2

cran
98th

Percentile

A system for 'declaratively' creating graphics, based on "The Grammar of Graphics". You provide the data, tell 'ggplot2' how to map variables to aesthetics, what graphical primitives to use, and it takes care of the details.

lazyeval

cran
97th

An alternative approach to non-standard evaluation using formulas. Provides a full implementation of LISP style 'quasiquotation', making it easier to generate code with other code.

plyr

cran
97th

Percentile

A set of tools that solves a common set of problems: you need to break a big problem down into manageable pieces, operate on each piece and then put all the pieces back together. For example, you might want to fit a model to each spatial location or time point in your study, summarise data by panels or collapse high-dimensional arrays to simpler summary statistics. The development of 'plyr' has been generously supported by 'Becton Dickinson'.

stringr

cran
97th

Percentile

A consistent, simple and easy to use set of wrappers around the fantastic 'stringi' package.

Percentile

Given $p$-dimensional training data containing $d$ groups (the design space), a classification algorithm (classifier) predicts which group new data belongs to. Generally the input to these algorithms is high dimensional, and the boundaries between groups will be high dimensional and perhaps curvilinear or multi-faceted. This package implements methods for understanding the division of space between the groups. See \url{http://had.co.nz/classifly} for more details.

Percentile

The curl() and curl_download() functions provide highly configurable drop-in replacements for base url() and download.file() with better performance, support for encryption (https, ftps), gzip compression, authentication, and other 'libcurl' goodies. The core of the package implements a framework for performing fully customized requests where data can be processed either in memory, on disk, or streaming via the callback or connection interfaces. Some knowledge of 'libcurl' is recommended; for a more-user-friendly web client see the 'httr' package which builds on this package with http specific tools and logic.

cowplot

cran
66th

Percentile

Some helpful extensions and modifications to the 'ggplot2' package. In particular, this package makes it easy to combine multiple 'ggplot2' plots into one and label them with letters, e.g. A, B, C, etc., as is often required for scientific publications. The package also provides a streamlined and clean theme that is used in the Wilke lab, hence the package name, which stands for Claus O. Wilke's plot package.

cellranger

cran

fda

cran
44th

Percentile

These functions were developed to support functional data analysis as described in Ramsay, J. O. and Silverman, B. W. (2005) Functional Data Analysis. New York: Springer. They were ported from earlier versions in Matlab and S-PLUS. An introduction appears in Ramsay, J. O., Hooker, Giles, and Graves, Spencer (2009) Functional Data Analysis with R and Matlab (Springer). The package includes data sets and script files working many examples including all but one of the 76 figures in this latter book. Matlab versions of the code and sample analyses are no longer distributed through CRAN, as they were when the book was published. For those, ftp from http://www.psych.mcgill.ca/misc/fda/downloads/FDAfuns/ There you find a set of .zip files containing the functions and sample analyses, as well as two .txt files giving instructions for installation and some additional information. The changes from Version 2.4.1 are fixes of bugs in density.fd and removal of functions create.polynomial.basis, polynompen, and polynomial. These were deleted because the monomial basis does the same thing and because there were errors in the code.

Functions to convert Rd to roxygen documentation. It can parse an Rd file to a list, create the roxygen documentation and update the original R script (e.g. the one containing the definition of the function) accordingly. This package also provides utilities which can help developers build packages using roxygen more easily. The formatR package can be used to reformat the R code in the examples sections so that the code will be more readable.

Includes two new scales and a new guide for 'ggplot2'.

plumbr

cran
3th

Percentile

The base R data.frame, like any vector, is copied upon modification. This behavior is at odds with that of GUIs and interactive graphics. To rectify this, plumbr provides a mutable, dynamic tabular data model. Models may be chained together to form the complex plumbing necessary for sophisticated graphical interfaces. Also included is a general framework for linking datasets; an typical use case would be a linked brush.
