Creating Seaborn Plots With R

Abdul Majed Raja shows how to call Python from R and build plots using the Seaborn Python package:

The reticulate package provides a comprehensive set of tools for interoperability between Python and R. The package includes facilities for:

  • Calling Python from R in a variety of ways including R Markdown, sourcing Python scripts, importing Python modules, and using Python interactively within an R session.
  • Translation between R and Python objects (for example, between R and Pandas data frames, or between R matrices and NumPy arrays).
  • Flexible binding to different versions of Python including virtual environments and Conda environments.

Reticulate embeds a Python session within your R session, enabling seamless, high-performance interoperability.

The more common use of reticulate I’ve seen is running TensorFlow neural networks from R.

Visualizing with Heatmaps in R

Anisa Dhana shows how you can create a quick heatmap plot in R: To give your own colors use the scale_fill_gradientn function.ggplot(dat, aes(Age, Race)) + geom_raster(aes(fill = BMI)) + scale_fill_gradientn(colours=c("white", "red")) This is a quick example using ggplot2 but there are other heatmap libraries available too.
