Create a D3 JavaScript Sankey diagram


d3Sankey(Links, Nodes, Source, Target, Value = NULL, NodeID, height = 600,
  width = 900, fontsize = 7, nodeWidth = 15, nodePadding = 10,
  parentElement = "body", standAlone = TRUE, file = NULL,
  iframe = FALSE, d3Script = "http://d3js.org/d3.v3.min.js")



a data frame object with the links between the nodes. It should have include the Source and Target for each link. An optional Value variable can be included to specify how close the nodes are to one another.


a data frame containing the node id and properties of the nodes. If no ID is specified then the nodes must be in the same order as the Source variable column in the Links data frame. Currently only grouping variable is allowed.


character string naming the network source variable in the Links data frame.


character string naming the network target variable in the Links data frame.


character string naming the variable in the Links data frame for how far away the nodes are from one another.


character string specifying the node IDs in the Nodes data frame.


numeric height for the network graph's frame area in pixels.


numeric width for the network graph's frame area in pixels.


numeric font size in pixels for the node text labels.


numeric width of each node.


numeric essentially influences the width height.


character string specifying the parent element for the resulting svg network graph. This effectively allows the user to specify where on the html page the graph will be placed. By default the parent element is body.


logical, whether or not to return a complete HTML document (with head and foot) or just the script.


a character string of the file name to save the resulting graph. If a file name is given a standalone webpage is created, i.e. with a header and footer. If file = NULL then result is returned to the console.


logical. If iframe = TRUE then the graph is saved to an external file in the working directory and an HTML iframe linking to the file is printed to the console. This is useful if you are using Slidify and many other HTML slideshow framworks and want to include the graph in the resulting page. If you set the knitr code chunk results='asis' then the graph will be rendered in the output. Usually, you can use iframe = FALSE if you are creating simple knitr Markdown or HTML pages. Note: you do not need to specify the file name if iframe = TRUE, however if you do, do not include the file path.


a character string that allows you to specify the location of the d3.js script you would like to use. The default is http://d3js.org/d3.v3.min.js.
