ggvenn

Venn Diagram by ggplot2, with really easy-to-use API. This package is inspired by Venny

Installation

if (!require(devtools)) install.packages("devtools")
devtools::install_github("yanlinlin82/ggvenn")

Quick Start

This package supports both list and data.frame type data as input.

For list data (each element is a set):

library(ggvenn)

a <- list(`Set 1` = c(1, 3, 5, 7, 9),
          `Set 2` = c(1, 5, 9, 13),
          `Set 3` = c(1, 2, 8, 9),
          `Set 4` = c(6, 7, 10, 12))
ggvenn(a, c("Set 1", "Set 2"))            # draw two-set venn
ggvenn(a, c("Set 1", "Set 2", "Set 3"))   # draw three-set venn
ggvenn(a)   # without set names, the first 4 elements in list will be chose to draw four-set venn

For data.frame data (each logical column is a set):

d <- tibble(value   = c(1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12, 13),
            `Set 1` = c(T, F, T, T, F, T, F, T, F,  F,  F),
            `Set 2` = c(T, F, F, T, F, F, F, T, F,  F,  T),
            `Set 3` = c(T, T, F, F, F, F, T, T, F,  F,  F),
            `Set 4` = c(F, F, F, F, T, T, F, F, T,  T,  F))
ggvenn(d, c("Set 1", "Set 2"))           # draw two-set venn
ggvenn(d, c("Set 1", "Set 2", "Set 3"))  # draw three-set venn
ggvenn(d)   # without set names, the first 4 logical column in data.frame will be chose to draw four-set venn

For data.frame data, there is also another way to plot in ggplot gramma:

# draw two-set venn (use A, B in aes)
ggplot(d, aes(A = `Set 1`, B = `Set 2`)) +
  geom_venn() + theme_void() + coord_fixed()

# draw three-set venn (use A, B, C in aes)
ggplot(d, aes(A = `Set 1`, B = `Set 2`, C = `Set 3`)) +
  geom_venn() + theme_void() + coord_fixed()

# draw four-set venn (use A, B, C, D in aes)
ggplot(d, aes(A = `Set 1`, B = `Set 2`, C = `Set 3`, D = `Set 4`)) +
  geom_venn() + theme_void() + coord_fixed()

More Options

There are more options for customizing the venn diagram.

  1. Tune the color and size

    For filling:

    For stroke:

    For set name:

    For text:

    All parameters above could be used in both ggvenn() and geom_venn().

    For example:

    a <- list(A = 1:4, B = c(1,3,5))
    ggvenn(a, stroke_linetype = 2, stroke_size = 0.5,
      set_name_color = "red", set_name_size = 15,
      fill_color = c("pink", "gold"))
  2. Show elements

    For example:

    a <- list(A = c("apple", "pear", "peach"),
              B = c("apple", "lemon"))
    ggvenn(a, show_elements = TRUE)
    
    ggvenn(a, show_elements = TRUE, label_sep = "\n")  # show elements in line
  3. Hide percentage

    For example:

    a <- list(A = 1:5, B = 1:2)
    ggvenn(a, show_percentage = FALSE)
  4. Change digits of percentage

    For example:

    a <- list(A = 1:5, B = 1:2)
    ggvenn(a, digits = 2)
