animint package in R allows animated data visualization which is a useful tool for obtaining an intuitive understanding of patterns in multivariate data sets used extensively in data related environments. It uses the ggplot2 syntax and is based on the widely accepted Grammar of Graphics. This project aims to build upon the already existing animint package by adding new useful features all the while making it more portable.

Overview of tasks:

  1. To depend on the most recent CRAN version of ggplot2
  2. To transfer current logic to Object Oriented internals
  3. To reduce compilation time using data.table package
  4. To change the basic syntax of animint functions
