Shiny is a new package from RStudio that makes it incredibly easy to build interactive web applications with R.
For an introduction and examples, visit the Shiny Dev Center.
To install the stable version from CRAN, simply run the following from an R console:
To install the latest development builds directly from GitHub, run this instead:
if (!require("devtools")) install.packages("devtools") devtools::install_github("rstudio/shiny")
To learn more we highly recommend you check out the Shiny Tutorial. The tutorial explains the framework in-depth, walks you through building a simple application, and includes extensive annotated examples.
We hope you enjoy using Shiny. If you have general questions about using Shiny, please use the Shiny mailing list. For bug reports, please use the issue tracker.
Shiny versions 0.10.2.2 and below used the Bootstrap 2 web framework. After 0.10.2.2, Shiny switched to Bootstrap 3. For most users, the upgrade should be seamless. However, if you have have customized your HTML-generating code to use features specific to Bootstrap 2, you may need to update your code to work with Bootstrap 3.
If you do not wish to update your code at this time, you can use the shinybootstrap2 package for backward compatibility.
If you prefer to install an older version of Shiny, you can do it using the devtools package:
devtools::install_version("shiny", version = "0.10.2.2")
