User-facing R functions are provided to parse, compile, test, estimate, and analyze Stan models by accessing the header-only Stan library provided by the 'StanHeaders' package. The Stan project develops a probabilistic programming language that implements full Bayesian statistical inference via Markov Chain Monte Carlo, rough Bayesian inference via 'variational' approximation, and (optionally penalized) maximum likelihood estimation via optimization. In all three cases, automatic differentiation is used to quickly and accurately evaluate gradients without burdening the user with the need to derive the partial derivatives.

ggvis

cran
86th

Percentile

An implementation of an interactive grammar of graphics, taking the best parts of 'ggplot2', combining them with the reactive framework of 'shiny' and drawing web graphics using 'vega'.

DescTools

cran
85th

Percentile

A collection of miscellaneous basic statistic functions and convenience wrappers for efficiently describing data. The author's intention was to create a toolbox, which facilitates the (notoriously time consuming) first descriptive tasks in data analysis, consisting of calculating descriptive statistics, drawing graphical summaries and reporting the results. The package contains furthermore functions to produce documents using MS Word (or PowerPoint) and functions to import data from Excel. Many of the included functions can be found scattered in other packages and other sources written partly by Titans of R. The reason for collecting them here, was primarily to have them consolidated in ONE instead of dozens of packages (which themselves might depend on other packages which are not needed at all), and to provide a common and consistent interface as far as function and arguments naming, NA handling, recycling rules etc. are concerned. Google style guides were used as naming rules (in absence of convincing alternatives). The 'camel style' was consequently applied to functions borrowed from contributed R packages as well.

cowplot

cran
84th

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.

HistData

cran
81th

Percentile

The 'HistData' package provides a collection of small data sets that are interesting and important in the history of statistics and data visualization. The goal of the package is to make these available, both for instructional use and for historical research. Some of these present interesting challenges for graphics or analysis in R.

fda

cran
79th

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.

A 'ggplot2' extension to visualize two variables through one color aesthetic via mapping to a color space projection. With this technique for 2-D color mapping, one can create a bivariate choropleth in R as well as other visualizations with multivariate color scales. Includes two new scales and a new guide for 'ggplot2'.

Rd2roxygen

cran

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.

plumbr

cran

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.
