History of this project

This is a Python version of the "Raincloud plot" (or "PetitPrince plot", depending on the orientation) from R (under ggplot2) to Python. The Raincloud plot is a variant of the violin plot written in R ggplot2 by Micah Allen.

I found a tweet asking for a Python version of the Raincloud plot, and I agreed to give it a try. Alas, the Python version for ggplot2 (plotnine) does not allow to create new styles in a comfortable way. So I decided to write this package using the seaborn library as a foundation.

Then I replicated the plots from the original post by Micah Allen, in Jupyter Notebooks and transformed that code into a Python package.

Since then, the package has received some publicity, and is for example listed in "awesome-python-data-science".

Changelog

v.0.2.x

* PtitPrince now relies on seaborn 0.10 and numpy >= 1.13
* kwargs can be passed to the [cloud (default), boxplot, rain/stripplot, pointplot]
                 by preponing [cloud_, box_, rain_, point_] to the argument name.
* End of support for python2, now the support covers python>=3.6

Plans for the future:

  • ask seaborn mantainers to add this new plot type (not gonna happen)
  • add a "move" option in seabon to control the positioning of each plot, as in ggplot2. (either, added in ptitprince)
  • get RainCloud published (done!)
  • add logarithic density estimate (LDE) to the options for the cloud
