I use pgfplots for most of my plots. Now I need to add a violin plot. Is this possible with pgfplots or any other package?

    pgfplots can do box plots out of the box. There is no builtin method for violin plots, so one would need to implement it manually. Jul 18, 2014 at 18:18

    @ChristianFeuersänger is it likely pgfplots will implement it in the future?

    It believe that is unlikely for now: there are items of higher priority and I have to find time to implement them. Apr 23, 2015 at 17:23
  • I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is (likely) a feature request.

  • There's a bug for that: github.com/pgf-tikz/pgfplots/issues/378 Jun 25, 2022 at 0:39
