ec.util: Utility functions

ec.utilR Documentation

Utility functions


tabset, table layout, support for GIS shapefiles through library sf


ec.util(..., cmd = "sf.series", js = NULL)



Optional parameters for the command
for sf.series - see points, polylines, polygons(itemStyle).
for tabset parameters should be in format name1=chart1, name2=chart2, see example


utility command, see Details


optional JavaScript function, default is NULL.


cmd = 'sf.series'
Build leaflet or geo map series from shapefiles.
Coordinate system is leaflet(default) or geo
polygons can have only their name in tooltip,
assumes Geodetic CRS is WGS 84, use st_transform with crs=4326 to convert.
parameter df - value from st_read
optional parameters:
nid - column name for name-id used in tooltips
verbose - print shapefile item names in console
returns a list of chart series
cmd = 'sf.bbox'
returns JavaScript code to position a map inside a bounding box from st_bbox, for leaflet only.
cmd = 'sf.unzip'
unzips a remote file and returns local file name of the unzipped .shp file
url - URL of remote zipped shapefile
optional shp - name of .shp file inside ZIP file if multiple exist. Do not add file extension.
cmd = 'layout'
multiple charts in table-like rows/columns format
... - List of charts
optional parameters:
title - Title for the set, rows= Number of rows, cols= Number of columns,
width - Width of columns (one of xs, md, lg)
returns a container div in rmarkdown, otherwise browsable.
For 3-4 charts one would use multiple series within a grid.
For greater number of charts ec.util(cmd='layout') comes in handy
cmd = 'tabset'
... - a list tab-name/chart pairs like n1=chart1, n2=chart2
optional parameters are:
width - Width of tabs in pixels, height= Height of tabs in pixels
tabStyle - tab style string, see default tabStyle variable in the code
returns a tagList of tabs, each tab may contain a chart.
cmd = 'morph'
... - a list of charts or chart options
optional parameter:
js - JS function for switching charts. Default function is on mouseover.
returns a chart with ability to morph into other charts
cmd = 'fullscreen'
a toolbox feature to toggle fullscreen on/off. Works in a browser, not in RStudio.
cmd = 'rescale'
t - target range c(min,max), numeric vector of two
v - vector of numeric values to rescale
cmd = 'level'
calculate vertical levels for timeline line charts, returns a numeric vector
df - data.frame with from & to columns
from - name of 'from' column
to - name of 'to' column
cmd = 'labelsInside'
labelLayout function to keep overflowing endLabels inside chart
optional parameters:
cid - elementId of the chart when multiple charts
dy - vertical offset in pixels, negative up, positive down
