At least, that’s the sentences i read when i start to googling about Shiny. And, R is a language and environment for statistical computing and graphics. It is a GNU project which is similar to the S language and environment which was developed at Bell Laboratories (formerly AT&T, now Lucent Technologies) by John Chambers and colleagues. R can be considered as a different implementation of S. There are some important differences, but much code written for S runs unaltered under R. (https://www.r-project.org/about.html)
Shiny Features :
- Shiny applications are automatically “live” in the same way that spreadsheets are live. Outputs change instantly as users modify inputs, without requiring a reload of the browser.
- Works in any R environment (Console R, Rgui for Windows or Mac, ESS, StatET, RStudio, etc.)
- Attractive default UI theme based on Twitter Bootstrap.
- A highly customizable slider widget with built-in support for animation.
- Pre-built output widgets for displaying plots, tables, and printed output of R objects.
- Fast bidirectional communication between the web browser and R using the websockets package.
- Uses a reactive programming model that eliminates messy event handling code, so you can focus on the code that really matters.
- Develop and redistribute your own Shiny widgets that other developers can easily drop into their own applications (coming soon!).
Well, as i am currently learning about data visualization, so i hv to learn about some tools to create graph for visualisizing the data. There are some tools i can use, but i still learn of it. So many things i should learn, and i think i can start it. But, may be i just need time to understand it all. Well, and this is would be my first post about R and it’s Shiny project. I’ll write some post later and give you some sample code, cheers!
