toLDAvis(mod,docs,R=30,plot.opts=list(xlab ="PC1", ylab = "PC2"),
                    lambda.step=.1,out.dir=tempfile(),open.browser=interactive(),
                    as.gist=FALSE)

Arguments

mod

STM object. Output from stm function.

docs

Documents object passed to stm in this package's standard format (see the documentation in stm.

R

passed to createJSON "integer, the number of terms to display in the barcharts of the interactive viz. Default is 30. Recommended to be roughly between 10 and 50."

plot.opts

passed to createJSON "a named list used to customize various plot elements. By default, the x and y axes are labeled 'PC1' and 'PC2' (principal components 1 and 2), since jsPCA is the default scaling method. "

lambda.step

passed to createJSON "a value between 0 and 1. Determines the interstep distance in the grid of lambda values over which to iterate when computing relevance. Default is 0.01. Recommended to be between 0.01 and 0.1."

out.dir

passed to serVis "directory to store html/js/json files."

open.browser

passed to serVis "Should R open a browser? If yes, this function will attempt to create a local file server via the servr package. This is necessary since the javascript needs to access local files and most browsers will not allow this."

as.gist

passed to serVis "should the vis be uploaded as a gist? Will prompt for an interactive login if the GITHUB_PAT environment variable is not set"
