{ggflowchart} is an R package for producing flowcharts using {ggplot2}.


Install the package using:

# install.packages("remotes")


The idea of {ggflowchart} is to create simple flowcharts with minimal effort. Currently, all flowcharts are constructed using the ggflowchart() function. For the most basic flowchart, it takes as input a data frame containing (at least) two columns for the start and end points of the edges in the flowchart.

data <- tibble::tibble(from = c("A", "A", "A", "B", "C", "F"),
                       to = c("B", "C", "D", "E", "F", "G"))

The flowchart is then created using ggflowchart().


See vignettes for further examples of usage.

Upcoming features

Note: this package is currently a work-in-progress. Upcoming features that are currently listed as issues being worked on include:

  • Changing fill and colour based on node attributes.
  • Changing linetype and colour of arrows based on edge attributes.
  • Support for color as well as colour.
  • Horizontal flowcharts.
  • Same-level arrows (currently an issue with crossing over).

If you have a suggestion of an additional feature, or find a bug, please file an issue on the GitHub repository.
