I had a busy year, and it completely slipped my mind that I usually do a caRd for the blog! So it's a little late, but hopefully provides a little end of year cheeR ;-)
A short warning: I've stopped trying to make these compatible with RStudio. I know that RStudio is very popular, but I struggle to get its internal plotting device to update iteratively to make an animation (despite trying various things, like while() or if() statements, or Sys.sleep()). If someone has a solution, please share.
To enjoy these plots you should see the animation in real time: e.g. Base R (any operating system) or R run via emacs or vim.
To run, you can access the source file on github
or run this code:
If you prefer not to run the code, the gif version can be found here!
