Let the snail crawl: Animated density curves

Let the snail crawl: Animated density curves

Previously, I’ve plotted a ridgeline based on a variable’s density through time. It might look nice but it’s quite obvious that time can be visualized in a more fitting way - by time itself, in an animated plot that is. So, let’s fire up the {gganimate} package again. My goal is to show a moving kernel density curve as it moves through time, based on a moving window of 30 days sliding from the past to the present.

‚Arrest this man, he talks in maths‘ - Animating ten years of listening history on Last.FM

Previously, when Rcrastinate was still on blogspot.com, I had a first look at ten years of my playback history on Last.FM. But there is still a lot one can do with this dataset. I wanted to try {gganimate} for a long time and this nice longitudinal dataset gives me the opportunity. Loading and preparing the data First, I am loading the dataset. I already did some preparations like extracting the top five tags for each track and some other stuff I used in my previous entry.
