ggrepel

Build Status CRAN_Status_Badge CRAN_Downloads_Badge

Overview

ggrepel provides geoms for ggplot2 to repel overlapping text labels:

  • geom_text_repel()
  • geom_label_repel()

Text labels repel away from each other, away from data points, and away from edges of the plotting area.

library(ggrepel)
ggplot(mtcars, aes(wt, mpg, label = rownames(mtcars))) +
  geom_text_repel() +
  geom_point(color = 'red') +
  theme_classic(base_size = 16)

Installation

# The easiest way to get ggrepel is to install it from CRAN:
install.packages("ggrepel")

# Or get the the development version from GitHub:
# install.packages("devtools")
devtools::install_github("slowkow/ggrepel")

Usage
