I followed this link too, and while it is a nomogram (Fagan's nomogram) it is not what I'm after. Nomogram() in R is more general and follows any GLM. See the example picture in the first link I gave.

Just about every other week I drop into our R clinic for a coffee
break to listen to people's questions and maybe ask one myself. The
clinic is about general use questions, not especially about
Bioconductor packages, which is one reason to use R. The clinic is run
by a very capable R expert. Originally I started going to the clinic
thinking to myself that well, maybe this would be the last version of
Stata I would buy, because R has come miles in development and
documentation. More often than not, however, I conclude the opposite,
and continue to regularly use Stata, thinking there is value is good
commercial products.

One interesting function in R that I can't find in Stata is Frank
Harrell's nomogram function in the Design package, which essentially
is a graphical alternative to outreg or estout.
