Bootstrap Landing Home Pages for Shiny

The goal of shinyLP is to provide functions that wrap HTML Bootstrap code to enable the design and layout of informative landing home pages for Shiny applications. A Landing page is the first page of a web app or website that a user interacts with to learn the purpose, usage and status of the tool. The user experience and interface are important features to consider when developing Shiny applications to direct, especially non-technical users how to use the application.

This package is inspired by the shinyBS package which incorporates useful components from the Bootstrap web framework for use in Shiny. shinyLP extends the Bootstrap components that are used in the Shiny package by making it easier by not having to write additional HTML code.

A talk was given about shinyLP at the Portland, Oregon R Users Group in 2017.
