The goal of sugrrants is to provide supporting graphs with R for analysing time series data. It aims to fit into the tidyverse and grammar of graphics framework for handling temporal data.
You could install the stable version on CRAN:

The fully-fledged faceting calendar
facet_calendar() unlocks day-to-day stories.
On the other hand, the
frame_calendar() provides tools for re-structuring the data into a compact calendar layout, without using the faceting method. It is fast and light-weight, although it does not preserve the values.
p <- pedestrian %>% filter(Sensor_ID == 9, Year == 2016) %>% mutate(Weekend = if_else(Day %in% c("Saturday", "Sunday"), "Weekend", "Weekday")) %>% frame_calendar(x = Time, y = Hourly_Counts, date = Date) %>% ggplot(aes(x = .Time, y = .Hourly_Counts, group = Date, colour = Weekend)) + geom_line() + theme(legend.position = "bottom") prettify(p)
This package is part of the project—Tidy data structures and visual methods to support exploration of big temporal-context data, which has been participated in Google Summer of Code 2017 (gsoc), for R project for statistical computing.
A new function
frame_calendar() [here and here] in the sugrrants package has been developed and documented for calendar-based graphics. I have also written a vignette [source and reader view], which introduces and demonstrates the usage of the
frame_calendar() function. Many unit tests have been carried out to ensure the expected performance of this function. The function implements non-standard evaluation and highlights the tidy evaluation in action. The initial release (v0.1.0) of the package has been published on CRAN during the gsoc summer time.
I have initialised a new R package tsibble for tidy temporal data, as part of the project. The
tsibble() function constructs a new
tbl_ts class for temporal data, and the
as_tsibble() helps to convert a few
ts objects into the
tbl_ts class. Some key verbs (generics) from the dplyr package, such as
filter(), have been defined and developed for the
tbl_ts data class. The tsibble package was highly experimental over the period of the gsoc [commits], and these functions are very likely to be changed or improved in the future.
shine_melb(), have been written and documented as the v0.1.0 and v0.2.0 releases on CRAN. The majority of the code for the function
run_melb()has been done, but the interface needs improving after the gsoc.
The acronym of sugrrants is SUpporting GRaphs with R for ANalysing Time Series, pronounced as “sugar ants” that are a species of ant endemic to Australia.
