Create a cloud of randomly jittered points below a ridgeline plot

This is a position adjustment specifically for geom_density_ridges() and related geoms. It only jitters the points drawn by these geoms, if any. If no points are present, the plot remains unchanged. The effect is similar to position_points_jitter(), only that by default the points lie all underneath the baseline of each individual ridgeline.

Usage
position_raincloud(
  width = 0,
  height = 0.4,
  ygap = 0.05,
  adjust_vlines = FALSE,
  seed = NULL
)
Arguments
width

Width for horizontal jittering. By default set to 0.

height

Total height of point cloud. By default 0.4.

ygap

Vertical gap between ridgeline baseline and point cloud.

adjust_vlines

If TRUE, adjusts vertical lines (as are drawn for quantile lines, for example) to align with the point cloud.

seed

Random seed. See position_points_jitter.

Details

The idea for this position adjustment comes from Micah Allen, who proposed this type of plot in a blog post on March 15, 2018.
