# An Easy Way to Make Ggplot2 Boxplots, ezplot - Part 2

## Master R

Previously, I introduced the ezplot package and demoed how to use it to make nice looking ggplot2 bar charts easily and quickly. Today, I’m going to show you how to make nice looking boxplots. Once again, the code is super simple.

#### Prerequisites

1. Install a set of development tools
• On Mac, install the Xcode command line tools.
• On Linux, install the R development package, usually called r-devel or r-base-dev.
2. Install devtools by running install.packages("devtools") in R.

We also observe that all the boxes are squashed down, indicating budget is heavily right-skewed. We can use either the log scale or the log10 scale on the y-axis. Once again, this can be easily done using the function scale_axis().
