In Detail

R is a highly flexible and powerful tool for analyzing and visualizing data. Shiny is the perfect companion to R, making it quick and simple to share analysis and graphics from R that users can interact with and query over the Web. Let Shiny do the hard work and spend your time generating content and styling, not writing code to handle user inputs.

Web Application Development with R Using Shiny is an accessible introduction to sharing interactive content from R using Shiny. You will learn by doing, with each chapter including code and examples to use and adapt for your own applications. By the end of this book, you will be able to build useful and engaging web applications with only a few lines of code – no JavaScript required.

Web Application Development with R Using Shiny will show you how to begin analyzing, visualizing, and sharing your data using practical examples.

This book will teach you how to rapidly prototype and build interactive data summaries using Shiny's built-in widgets and functions. You will learn how to integrate Shiny applications with your existing HTML and CSS, how to greatly extend the power and usability of your applications using JavaScript, and how to quickly deploy them over the Web.

The book uses practical examples to show you how to get the best out of R and Shiny, helping you to produce and share cutting-edge analytics with minimal effort.
