Introduction to Shiny Slides

Below you can download the slides presented on February 9, 2013 at the Dallas R Users Group on RStudio’s Shiny framework which allows you to create interactive web applications in R. No knowledge of HTML or JavaScript is required!

I introduce the alternatives and history of R programming on the web, the reactive programming model, and get into some sample applications.

    This is potentially really cool for me personally. The website I put in the link above is something I wrote recently using Node.js/Express/Angular, and what I really would like to do is integrate some graphics using D3.js and/or ggplot. Currently, my site is being hosted by Nodejitsu. Would it be possible for me to integrate Shiny Server in my application?

    • Jeff Allen says:

      I would imagine so! I’m unfamiliar with Nodejitsu, though, so I’m not sure about their policies. But if you’re able to run R on the server before installing shiny-server, you may be able to get away with it!

      • EvanZ says:

        Thanks, I’ll have to look into it.
