vegawidget 0.3.1 Unreleased

vegawidget 0.2.1 2019-06-24

  • Upgrade to Vega-Lite 3.3.0, Vega 5.4.0, vega-embed 4.2.0. This is supported by all modern browsers and RStudio IDE 1.2.

New features

  • Update Vega and Vega-Lite libraries to be consistent with Vega-Lite v3.2.1. Add functions to support addDataListener() method offered by vega-view, use vw_shiny_demo("data-set-get") for more information. (#65)

Improvements and fixes

  • Modify knit_print() to handle non-HTML formats. Instead of using the webshot package, the knit_print() function converts charts to either png, svg (useful for github_document), or pdf (useful for pdf_document) format. (#44, @AliciaSchep)

  • Improve implementation of the base_url argument in vegawidget(); it works for both local and remote paths. (#63, with @AliciaSchep)

  • Update templating functions, splitting to two functions: use_vegawidget() and use_vegawidget_interactive(), which let you import and re-export basic-rendering and interactive functions, respectively. If your package keeps its version of a spec in its own S3 class, you can call use_vegawidget() with that class’ name. (#83)

  • Move shiny from an Imports dependency to a Suggests dependency. (#82)

  • (Of interest to developers) modify the class-naming for Vega-Lite specs, adding a another level of S3 class that describes the type of chart, e.g. unit, layer, facet, etc. (#77)

  • Modify contribution guidelines; use master as reference branch for all pull-requests.
