A Grammar of Animated Graphics

The grammar of graphics as implemented in the 'ggplot2' package has been successful in providing a powerful API for creating static visualisation. In order to extend the API for animated graphics this package provides a completely new set of grammar, fully compatible with 'ggplot2' for specifying transitions and animations in a flexible and extensible way.


gganimate 1.0.2

  • Fix registration of S3 methods for suggested packages

gganimate 1.0.1

  • Fix bug in transitions when the group aesthetic was late evalued (#262)
  • Better fade support for geom_smooth(). Both ribbon and line will now fade.
  • Fix bug in transitions when group aesthetic was a string that could be interpreted as a double (#266)
  • Fix bug in shadow_mark() where future shadows were drawn above the main frame data.
  • Better error messages when a layer type is not supported by the transition
  • Fix bug where transitions didn't work with difftime/hms for specifying durations when transition variable was a POSIX or date class.
  • Fix bug where using a view would modify the plot coordinate system in-place, resulting in modifications to the original plot object.
  • view_follow now works with transformed scales.

gganimate 1.0.0

  • First CRAN release, featuring a complete rewrite... Too much stuff to put in a changelog
