In recent years, the free software R has become the quasi standard for statistical computing and graphics. At the same time, web-based applications are getting more and more important for data access, presentations and services. The R package „Shiny” (shiny.rstudio.com) offers a simple web application framework for R which enables scientists to directly use their R skills and R scripts for interactive web applications (shinyuser-showcase).
In this project we will develop and evaluate three test applications
If successfully evaluated, Shiny applications will facilitate work processes at WSL and offer an easy-to-use framework for WSL-internal as well as externally accessible web-applications.
Interested WSL scientists are welcome to join our regular "Shiny Coffee" and to test their own shiny applications on one of our virtual test servers. Please contact
