Write a list of plots (ggplots; as used by fasstr) into a directory or PDF document. When writing into a named directory each plot will be named by the plot name listed in the list; uses ggplot2::ggsave function. When writing into a PDF document (combined_pdf == TRUE) the plot names will not appear; uses grDevices::pdf function.

write_plots(
  plots,
  folder_name,
  plot_filetype,
  width,
  height,
  units = "in",
  dpi = 300,
  combined_pdf = FALSE
)

Arguments

plots

List of plots to write to disk.

folder_name

Name of folder to create on disk (if it does not exist) to write each plot from list. If using combined_pdf argument, then it will be the name of the PDF document.

plot_filetype

Examples

if (FALSE) { # Working examples: # Example plots to save plots <- plot_annual_lowflows(station_number = "08NM116") # Write the plots as "png" files write_plots(plots = plots, folder_name = "Low Flow Plots", plot_filetype = "png") # Write the plots as a combined "pdf" document write_plots(plots = plots, folder_name = "Low Flow Plots", combined_pdf = TRUE) }
