The goal of {ibmsunburst} is to wrap the JavaScript library that IBM have produced for making sunburst personality insights charts for use in R and R Markdown documents.

Work on this package was part-sponsored by Hendrik Feddersen, a prominent HR Analytics advocate.


Install {ibmsunburst} from GitHub

# install.packages("remotes")


Below we input the path to a JSON file corresponding to the output of IBM Watson Personality Insights service and visualize it.

json_path <- system.file(
  "extdata", "profiles",
  "en_v2.json", package = "ibmsunburst"

ibmsunburst::ibmsunburst(json = json_path, version = "v2")

You can use the function on a list, on JSON or on a filepath, making it quite handy for integration in your workflow.

There is no R wrapper for the IBM Personality Insight API itself yet, but you could use it with {httr}, as shown in a very short example in the vignette.

Dev notes

Kent Russell added some documentation of the changes that he made to the source sunburst-chart JavaScript library. Find them here.
