We are starting the year 2023 with 1.7.0 of the babyplots library and the corresponding versions of the babyplots R and Python implementations.
Version 1.7.0 brings some under the hood improvements to the babyplots library. We upgraded to the latest version of babylonjs (5.44) which improves the performance of the library.
Additionally, the R implementation now includes getters and setters for many of the plot options. This makes it easier to modify the plot after it has been created. Especially when using the babyplots in a Shiny app, this can be very useful. The package now depends on the latest version of htmlwidgets (1.6.1).
Lastly, the individual shiny bindings per plot type in the R package have been deprecated. Instead, you can use the
renderBabyplot() functions to create a plot. The repository of the R package now includes an example shiny app that demonstrates how to use the new functions.
