htmlwidgets: Power of JavaScript in R

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

htmlwidgets is an R package that provides a comprehensive framework to create interactive javascript based widgets, for use from R. Once created, these widgets can be used at the R console, embedded in an R Markdown report, or even used inside a Shiny web application. In this talk, I will introduce the concept of a "htmlwidget", and discuss how to create, develop and publish a new widget from scratch. I will discuss how multiple widgets can be composed to create dashboards and interactive reports. Finally, I will touch upon more advanced functionality like auto-resizing and post-render callbacks, and briefly discuss some of the exciting developments in this area. There has been significant interest in the R community to bring more interactivity into visualizations, reports and applications. The htmlwidgets package is an attempt to simplify the process of developing interactive widgets, and publishing them for more widespread usage in the R community.
