ggiraph: a ggplot2 Extension for Interactive Graphics

The ggiraph package combines ggplot2 and D3.js tools. From a user point of view, it enables the production of interactive graphics from ggplot2 objects by using their extension mechanism.

It provides useful interactive capabilities such as tooltips and zoom/pan.

Last but not least, graphical elements can be selected when a ggiraph object is embedded in a Shiny app: selection will be available as a reactive value.

The interface is simple, flexible and does not requires effort to be integrated in R Markdown documents or Shiny applications.

In this talk I will introduce ggiraph and show examples of using it as a data visualisation tools in RStudio, Shiny applications and R Markdown documents.
