plotnine.geoms.geom_sina

class plotnine.geoms.geom_sina(mapping=None, data=None, **kwargs)[source]

Draw a sina plot

A sina plot is a data visualization chart suitable for plotting any single variable in a multiclass dataset. It is an enhanced jitter strip chart, where the width of the jitter is controlled by the density distribution of the data within each class.

Usage

geom_sina(mapping=None, data=None, stat='sina', position='dodge', na_rm=False,
          inherit_aes=True, show_legend=None, **kwargs)

Only the mapping and data can be positional, the rest must be keyword arguments. **kwargs can be aesthetics (or parameters) used by the stat.

Parameters
mappingaes, optional

Aesthetic mappings created with aes(). If specified and inherit.aes=True, it is combined with the default mapping for the plot. You must supply mapping if there is no plot mapping.

Aesthetic

Default value

x

y

alpha

1

color

'black'

fill

None

group

shape

'o'

size

1.5

stroke

0.5

The bold aesthetics are required.

datadataframe, optional

The data to be displayed in this layer. If None, the data from from the ggplot() call is used. If specified, it overrides the data from the ggplot() call.

statstr or stat, optional (default: stat_sina)

The statistical transformation to use on the data for this layer. If it is a string, it must be the registered and known to Plotnine.

positionstr or position, optional (default: position_dodge)

Position adjustment. If it is a string, it must be registered and known to Plotnine.

na_rmbool, optional (default: False)

If False, removes missing values with a warning. If True silently removes missing values.

inherit_aesbool, optional (default: True)

If False, overrides the default aesthetics.

show_legendbool or dict, optional (default: None)

Whether this layer should be included in the legends. None the default, includes any aesthetics that are mapped. If a bool, False never includes and True always includes. A dict can be used to exclude specific aesthetis of the layer from showing in the legend. e.g show_legend={'color': False}, any other aesthetic are included by default.
