Or, if you use conda/mamba:
conda install -c conda-forge r-complexupset
How it compares to other packages?
- UpSetR is a powerful tool and the pioneer in the UpSet visualisations; it was not designed to be extended with ggplot components. Unfortunately, the repository is no longer active (for two years now).
- ggupset uses scales to convert a single plot to upsets plots, e.g. with
scale_x_upset- a really nice approach, recommended for simple ggplot.
- a cowplot-based upset was demonstrated in an online publication, however cowplot (a great tool at the time) got superseded by even greater tool: patchwork, which is what is used by ComplexUpset.
- ComplexHeatmap also offers a way to generate UpSet plots with annotations; while not ggplot2-centered, it provides extensive customization options, with a clear API. It may be the best choice if you already use it for heatmaps.
Use whichever tool you find the most useful for your particular use. The rational of making this repository public is not only to share the code, but also to demonstrate how simple it is now to create complex visualisations with patchwork (without the need to learn the ggplot internals).

The list is not meant to be exhaustive, but representative of applications to different fields, and of different usage ideas. You are welcome to add your own publication by suggesting an edit.
The unit tests are run with
testhat, and the visual "doppelganger" tests use
The test cases for visual tests are auto-generated from the examples in the documentation; after changing or adding an example, please run:
scripts/prepare_for_tests.shto generate updated test cases, and
scripts/manage_visual_tests.shto validate the generated images.
