R Skåne Workshop

Making interactive web apps with {shiny}

  • Workshop

{shiny} is a popular R package for making interactive web interfaces in R. With it you can build an interface to your data in just a few steps, allowing you or your users to explore and interact with the data directly.

In this workshop, we will go through the minimum steps to get started with {shiny} and use it to explore a dataset - either one selected by me, or one by your choosing. It will be a hands-on session with materials both for beginners and intermediate users. Some experience with {ggplot2} and {dplyr} is useful, but not required. 

If possible, please, install R, RStudio and {tidyverse} and {shiny} R packages before the workshop.
