Installation

Install the hexSticker package via CRAN:

install.packages("hexSticker")

You can also install the package via the Github repository.

# install.package("remotes")   #In case you have not installed it.
remotes::install_github("GuangchuangYu/hexSticker")

Fail to install

imageMagick

imageMagick is required for installing hexSticker. If you have not installed it, please try the following approaches.

Fail to load ‘sysfonts’

In Mac OS, you may need to re-install sysfont to properly load it.

Be sure to install xquartz first.

brew update && brew install homebrew/cask/xquartz

Examples

sticker function will produce a file with dimension exactly for printing according to http://hexb.in/sticker.html

base plot

library(hexSticker)
s <- sticker(~plot(cars, cex=.5, cex.axis=.5, mgp=c(0,.3,0), xlab="", ylab=""),
          package="hexSticker", p_size=20, s_x=.8, s_y=.6, s_width=1.4, s_height=1.2,
          filename="inst/figures/baseplot.png")

The sticker() will generate a figure specified by the filename parameter. The output of the sticker() function is a ggplot object, e.g. the s variable in the above example. Print the object, print(s), will display the image. However, the image may slightly different from the created image file since the graphic device size are different. To solve this issue, hexSticker package provides plot function to preview sticker. Try plot(s) :).

lattice

library(lattice)

counts <- c(18,17,15,20,10,20,25,13,12)
outcome <- gl(3,1,9)
treatment <- gl(3,3)
bwplot <- bwplot(counts ~ outcome | treatment, xlab=NULL, ylab=NULL, cex=.5,
                 scales=list(cex=.5), par.strip.text=list(cex=.5))
sticker(bwplot, package="hexSticker", p_size=20, s_x=1.05, s_y=.8, s_width=2, s_height=1.5,
        h_fill="#f9690e", h_color="#f39c12", filename="inst/figures/lattice.png")

ggplot2

library(ggplot2)

p <- ggplot(aes(x = mpg, y = wt), data = mtcars) + geom_point()
p <- p + theme_void() + theme_transparent()

sticker(p, package="hexSticker", p_size=20, s_x=1, s_y=.75, s_width=1.3, s_height=1,
        filename="inst/figures/ggplot2.png")

image file

imgurl <- system.file("figures/cat.png", package="hexSticker")
sticker(imgurl, package="hexSticker", p_size=20, s_x=1, s_y=.75, s_width=.6,
        filename="inst/figures/imgfile.png")

Google fonts

library(showtext)
## Loading Google fonts (http://www.google.com/fonts)
font_add_google("Gochi Hand", "gochi")
## Automatically use showtext to render text for future devices
showtext_auto()

## use the ggplot2 example
sticker(p, package="hexSticker", p_size=22, s_x=1, s_y=.75, s_width=1.3, s_height=1,
        p_family = "gochi", filename="inst/figures/ggplot2-google-font.png")
