  • changed the defaults and behavior of the color and fill argument/aesthetics to better maintain backwards compatibility but also prevent unnecessary outlines (#87)
  • added resolve_phylopic (#66)
  • pick_phylopic now accepts a list of uuids via the uuid argument (#95)
  • fixed check behavior on CRAN (all tests and examples are now skipped)
  • caught a rare error when nothing matched filter

CRAN release: 2023-10-28

  • vignettes are now precompiled

rphylopic 1.2.1

CRAN release: 2023-10-10

rphylopic 1.2.0

CRAN release: 2023-08-29

  • added text argument to get_attribution (#56)
  • get_attribution now handles multiple uuids
  • added browse_phylopic function (#60)
  • added preview argument to get_phylopic (#59)
  • switched to {maps} package in base R advanced vignette
  • geom_phylopic now properly handles a single unlisted image object passed to the “img” parameter (#75)
  • added filter (license) argument to get_uuid, pick_phylo, add_phylopic_base, add_phylopic, and geom_phylopic (#72)
  • added img argument to get_uuid and get_attribution

rphylopic 1.0.0

CRAN release: 2023-03-20

  • The package has been updated to work with PhyloPic API ver. >=2.1.1
  • The package has been reworked to its core functionality of fetching silhouettes and plotting them in base R and ggplot2:
    • get_uuid: this function enables users to get uuid(s) associated with a taxonomic name (new function)
    • get_phylopic: this function enables users to get the PhyloPic silhouette associated with a specific uuid (replaces image_get)
    • pick_phylopic: this function enables users to pick specific PhyloPic silhouettes when multiple are available for a given taxonomic name (new function)
    • add_phylopic_base: this function retains it’s core functionality and is used to add a silhouette to a base R plot (updated from add_phylopic_base)
    • add_phylopic: this function retains it’s core functionality and is used to add a silhouette to a ggplot2 (updated from add_phylopic)
    • get_attribution: this function enables users to get the attribution data associated with a specific uuid (new function)
    • save_phylopic: this function enables users to save PhyloPic silhouettes using various formats (replaces save_png)
